Hello and welcome lovely people,
Well, what a week I’ve had and not in a good way. My little pupster Syd tripped me up on the stairs, making me slip and hurt my back. Ouchy indeed. Little pain she is. Good job she is a cute as one of my buttons as I’m nearing the end of my tether with her and I’m a pretty damn patient person on the whole. But her antics didn’t stop there. I popped out yesterday morning to catch up with a friend and exchange back tips, but whilst out the other half wasn’t watching her and she got into the craft room and managed to destroy two of my latest projects. Furious doesn’t come into it!
The papers are the gorgeous Paradise Crush from First Edition as I simply cannot get enough of it! Here, I’ve taken the little budgie illustration and highlighted it using a distressed MDF frame from Dovecraft which I’ve painted and stencilled and then given a glitzy coat of glitter glue. The flowers, from Santoro, have been smudged with the same paints and tucked around the ornate gold frame from Xcut.
I was super pleased with the A-frame card, really summery and worked beautifully but it wasn’t meant to be!
The other card she attacked was this girlie card using Pretty Posy papers (also from First Edition).
The buttons, wooden frame, adhesive gems and one of the gold mirrored chevrons have ‘disappeared’ so I dread to think when they’ll reappear again! I’ll have to keep an eye out incase it’s a vet job. Sigh…
Anyway… this is what both projects look like now:
So thanks Syd! What an utter ratbag and very much in the doghouse this week (and the Oh too for not doing his Dad duties!). Here’s hoping next week is an improvement!!
