Hello lovelies! Well I was super excited yesterday - I went on the weigh in scales and would you believe it - I had managed to lose all my christmas weight and was back at the weight I was in October when I was last weighed! I'm well chuffed as I had a sneaky weigh in last week in an evening and I had gained rather a lot over christmas ..... now just need to keep things on track so I can lose the extra stone I'm carrying that I don't need!!! I hope you're all managing to banish that Christmas tummy too!!!!
Today I want to share with you a card I've made for my uncle Bernard - I know - two days in a row with mens cards - this one is using my lovely new steampunk birds I purchased from Chocolate Baroque in their fabulous sale! I think it might even still be on - 20% off everything!!!
I've used two stamps from the steampunk birds sheet - and coloured them with my speccies and fussy cut them. The background I created using a crafters companion embossing folder that I wiped over with a platinum ink pad and then used a mask and some black embossing paste to create the cogs etc.. Finally I added the words from dylusions. I mounted this onto a card made from centura pearl card swiped over with a silver ink pad.
I'd like to enter this card into the following challenges:
