|Whoops.....glossy accents isnt completely dry on the sentiment but Im impatient and took the photos anywhoodles.|
What in the name of bejeezes is goin' on here?? There appears to be a card on this post and Im not sure......but I'd nearly swear that I made it!! Can someone take me to the doctor please because Ive obviously hit my head because I dont do cards last time I checked. In fact I nearly had a hissy fit when one of my cousins suggested I should start up my own card business after she saw my wedding invites, thank you cards and a few other wee bits and pieces, lol. Now having my own business.....yeah who wouldnt want to do something they love, day in day out and get paid for it. But a card business!!!!???? My idea of a complete nightmare.
Dont get me wrong, Im not in any way dissing what you lovely girlies do. In fact, its the complete opposite. I admire every single one of you for all the beautiful cards you create. But when I sit down to make a card.....once in a blue moon, the very thought of it breaks me out in panic sweats and I go into a trance staring at a white card blank!! I subsequently drift off into a daydream where Tim Holtz and I are in my craft room making the most incredible cards together and having great ole craic having a wee laugh and giggle over my daftness. Then.........CRASH!!!!! The scissors fall off my desk, I awaken abruptly after an hour having fallen asleep in my craft chair and wiping drool off me soggy face. And there it is.......that damned white card blank......still sitting staring up at me from my messy desk and not one word of Tim Holtz about the place. I even check under my desk.....you know, just to make sure he isnt hiding under there!
I just dont get it....cardmaking that is. I envy you lot. How you design them, colour them, put them together. Nope, give me a book to make, a box to alter or a flower to create and Im as happy as a pig in you know what. But ask me to make a card and I think there would be very little difference between me and a 4 year old who just dropped their icecream on the floor, in the screaming and crying department!
Anyway, now that Ive made it abundantly clear that I DO NOT MAKE CARDS....... heres my card!!
Its for one of my brothers (I have 3....all younger than me the buggers!), Jamie or as I like to call him....MiWadi. Yes, I do realise Im calling my almost 23 year old brother after the name of a diluting juice drink.....But he's My MiWadi, heehee. God only knows how many copyright laws Ive just broken there!!
Isnt he a handsome Devil? I love this stamp and its was my first time inking him up....he looks like my Daddy.....is that weird?! This is a stamp I got last week from the incredible Crafty Individuals and his reference number is CI-072. I have become obsessed with their stuff, its incredible. I used a scalloped Rectangle in light blue cardstock I got in a swap, gold mirri card and then more of the papermania Kraft cardstock. Stamped the Crafty Individuals CI-072 stamp onto cream linen paper in tuxedo black and thats it really!
