Girls, Girls, GIRLS!

Hey guys. I don't know why, but it feels so weird posting on here, it feels like ages and it's only been two days. Crazy. I've been feeling like poop the past few days with this stoopid cold, I've got no mojo, no get up and go, no nothing. But on Saturday night I gave my head a good wobble and sat down and coloured. Admittidly a LOT of images went into the bin, but Sonny was one of the images that passed as acceptable. Luckily. Just in time for the new challenge over a Pollycraft..


Here is the card I made using Sonny Honeycloud - My Way available HERE in digi from the Pollycraft Shop.

Not the first sorta design you'd usually think of for a girl card. I thought I'd go with yellow as my main colour as opposed to pink. I treated myself to some new copics recently (thinking they would reignite my mojo.. how wrong was I?!) and wanted to try a yellow combo. I used Y11, Y13 and Y21 - there is so much more depth in real life, I promise - these photos just don't do it justice.

I used some gorgeous papers and elements from an American Crafts kit I won in a raffle over a Sarahs Cards LTD alongside my monthly kit. SUPER excited about this kit - it's totally summery and a total contast to the Christmas stuff I seem to be swimming in lately! :) Brace youtself for a lot more of this! LOL.

The little orange tag, which is part of the kit ;) pulls out from behind the main layout, I've left it blank for personalisation later on.

You see the little strip along the top on the inside of the card? That's part of a perforated strip along the bottom of one of the sheets of patterned paper. GENIUS?! You know us crafters hate waste and this TOTALLY minimises it! ;)

Soo.. head on over to the CHALLENGE BLOG now to see what the rest of the awesome ladies have made to inspire ya - Lil' Kitty is a BIG feature, let me tell ya.
