HB Mummy

Happy Friday!! :) I'm pre-scheduling (if that's even a word?) this post, so I'll keep it short and sweet. Getting up to anything exciting this weekend?! I have no plans as of yet.. but I fancy a walk somewhere. Get some colour in my cheeks. :)

Anywho, thought I'd share another commission with you guys today. I was hoping to have at least a post a day this year, keep you all entertained and wanting to return and stuff. Want to get my comments up this year. Show me some love, please!! Check me, begging!! LOL.

Request - purple and floral. I decided to make this a shaped card - a little more special and all that, although by using my nesties is doesn't leave a whole lot of 'card' space to play with. Never the less I manage to fit everything on, and it doesn't look too squidged together. Does it?!

The gorgeous swirly thingy, is a piece of MiC Chipboard. LOVE how delicate and intricate these pieces are! I found a whole bunch I'd forgotten about the other day. These, gears and dragonflies, oh and some Christmas ornaments and stuff!! Don't you love that?! :) Finding stuff you'd forgotten about, I mean.

I tried to colour it using some Milled Lavender DI, but the chipboard was totally drinking it. It has a slightly purple hue, but I think it still matches the card pretty well. I've pieced the sentiment together using some Jenni Bowlin alpha stickers, a PTI stamp and some letters I cut using my Slice. Love that little machine. :)

So much for keeping this short and sweet!! LOL!!

Hope you enjoy your weekend. Blink and you'll miss it mind! Isn't that always the case?! The week totally drags and then the weekend fly by in a flash. Mad. Who's up for a three day weekend?! I'll be back tomorrow with my Mams birthday card. It is her birthday after all. :)
