Hey Dude

I'm not even kidding, this is my very first post of 2015. On the 15th of the month. What a disgrace! LOL! I hope to catch up very soon, as I have a bunch of cards from the end of last year to share as well as upcoming DT work for the rest of the month. We'll see how I get on! 

Today I am sharing a card I created as part of Little Miss Muffet GDT for the month of January. I'll own up now, I totally missed the first week, I forgot to type up my post for last week, and now.. here we have arrived! LOL!!

I really wanted to kick off the year with some male cards. They are definitely something I enjoy making, but something my card pile tells you I don't make enough of. 

Here's Polka Dot Pals Tenn with those awesome braces he's rocking. I coloured him using ProMarkers and had another go at flicky hair using my FlexMarkers. I'm getting better, I think. I won't give up! ;)

I coloured him up to match some very cute papers I picked up at The Works a couple weeks ago. Apparently they're going into liquidation, which is sad - I have only just discovered they have a crafty section. Although, that probably isn't a bad thing. I need to start using stash not buying more.

Anywho. I added a bunch of layers which I roughed up with an edger tool, lots of dimension and bits and pieces of die cuts, ribbon and twine. I added a stamped sentiment as well as a couple buttons here and there before adhering it all to the card base. 

I hope you likey.

Thanks for stopping by today! xo

One of the reasons I haven't been blogging much is (as silly as it sounds) it's hard to type. During the winter I suffer really badly from keens (Google it, they're awful). It's like having a super super deep paper cut that never ever heals on the end of your finger. I have them on at least 4 fingers at a time. Enough whining, but yes, that's why. It hurts to type up blog posts. I'll troop on though. I've had a few messages about where I've disappeared to! ;)
