Make it Like.. POPS!!

Here's me falling WAAAY behind with my blog posting again. I've been so busy working on Christmas orders to get them out within a reasonable 'Christmas' kinda time scale that I don't really know whether I've been coming or going these past few weeks *grins* 

I'm finished up now though, just a few more DT projects to work on then I'll be done for the holiday season and I can sit down, chill and get my mojo topped back up! ;) Hopefully in the new year I'll be in some kinda frame of mind to try and have a small purge of some of my craft stash that I seem to have been collecting rather than using over the past year.

After promising myself I wasn't gonna buy much more stuff, which I have kinda stuck to.. it has sorta made me more frugal with stuff. So now I've got that to overcome - and I'm getting there slowly but surely. Again, it's with paper.. if it's discontinued I don't wanna use it up if I really like it, because chances are I'm never going to see it again.. but if I take a step back and look at the bigger picture - this could turn into a vicious circle. FAST! So time to stop being such a dork about stuff and get it used up so I have room for new goodies if ever I fancy spending my monies on more craft stash. HAH!

So, I betcha wish I hadn't made an appearance back in blog land tonight huh? What with that little script. Ramble out of the way let's get down to the bones of this post. 

Yesterday over at Tiddly Inks we posted a brand new challenge for you guys to join in with. I'm super excited to tell you all that it's another 'Make It Like..' and this time round it's 


Yippeee. This is Pop's gorgeous card she made for us to draw some inspiration from. 


I decided to take the size of the card and the way she had her embellishments laid out as inspiration this time round, and this is what I came up with - as part of a commission would you believe. *wink, wink*

So I'ma keep this short and sweet as I wanna hit the hay some time before 10:30 again tonight. I'm pooped.

I used the adorable Wryn - Fairy Friends and coloured her up using ProMarkers and FlexMarkers to match my patterned papers from My Minds Eye. I printed the image out pretty large so that it would take up a generous portion of my 6x6" card. I love how it turned out. I just wish I'd stamped the 1st Birthday onto a seperate piece of cardstock, but meh. Picky.

All of the ribbon and fibres are from The Ribbon Girl, I've used a heap load of bling - a mixture of Kaisercraft, Papermania, Liquid Pearls, Prima and Stickles and the flowers are from Wild Orchid Crafts. There are a lot of horizontal layers on this card, which have ended up pretty much covered, but I know they're there. Heh. I double bow-ed the.. bow?! UHHH!! and added a pretty Stickle-d snowflake with a button in the centre to the knot. The specifications for this card included pink and snowflakes, whatcha reckon?!

That's all I got for ya tonight. Hopefully I'll be back tomorrow night to post and schedule a few more bits and pieces here and there before I totally log off for Christmas - not that I've been around much anyway. HAH!

Over and Out. xo
