Good morning folks!
How are all of you today? I hope you are having better weather then we have - rain, rain, dull, dull and more rain! It is getting right depressing now! I guess I should really live somewhere in the Mediterranean - I don't do well in bad weather!
Sooo onto the thing that is most important today - WOYWW! To be honest my whole craft room is one big mess - I haven't been at home much as you know ( I have done about 5000 km in the last few weeks wizzing around Europe) so all I have been doing is dumping stuff in my room and on my desk and well anywhere I cold find any room to dump something - I had to make a card the other day so I tidyed up enough space to make the card - it isn't finished yet because I need an extra bit which I hope to get today!
I was thinking about Julias post the other day talking about Tim Holtzian style and how it is hard work! Well it certainly is if you want it to look really good! For this card I decided to take on the tag Linda Elbourne made for me at Ally Pally! Huh! It looked so easy when she was demoing it but when I was doing it it was a big job and takes aaaaaaaaaages!!!!!! Fafing around with all those inks and then the stamps ( and me being freaked out about not cleaning the stamps - I used about half a baby wipe packet! Gosh! Then I decided to make the flowers - they looked a bit dull just inked up so I thought ok I will spray some mica on them - yeh well I bought a lovely spray at Ally Pally from Dyan Reaveley called Dylusions - lovely stuff the only problem was the spraying thingy didn't work so I had mica all over the place, that not working I got a brush out and painted the flowers! Huh do you want me to go on??? Then I decided I wanted to put on a bit of metal so I fish out this heart and put some alcochol ink on it...guess what - that thing also seems to be brocken - the ink came out everwhere but at least some of it did get on the heart! So I am almost there! What a pelave!!! I love the style but again I must agree with Julia! IT IS BLOODY HARD WORK!!!!!!
Anyway have a look at my messy room - don't have a shock - aren't crafters desks suppose to be messy???? Well I am living proof!
So here is my card.....
And here is the rest of my messy room......turn to the right I have a new box where I have put all of my Hero Arts stamps and all my tags ( another box - less room on my desk huh!!)
......turn to the right....my other box is now home for all the rest of my stamps - also my new TH and Wendy Vecchi ones.... and as you can see I have got out my Christmas stuff.....
and here I am spread out all over the couch - I think nobody will be sitting on that one for a while! Also a big box of stamps - ready for Christmas cardmaking and a load of DP and allsorts....
So there now you have seen my shame! I hope you enjoy the snoop! I will try to get round to you this week - last week was just too busy for me - I will try to be better this week - especially as I am actually staying at HOME this weekend!
Have a lovely day, hugs to all of you....see ya soon!Cardarian
