Papers- Laura Ashley traditional (the blue & yellow flowery bit)
Map paper from a 12x12 huge folder of paper I have had for years
(don't know what its called though!)
I am back in bloggyland bright and early this morning to share with you my card for the CES challenge blogs Mix & Match challenge.
I came in their top 3 again last week, thank you so much girlies, and I can't tell you how much that means to me because sometimes you feel like you are blogging away all to yourself so its lovely to know people pop in and like what you have been busy creating away at. Thank you again xxxx
And so onto the mix and match challenge.....arghhhhhh!! anyone who knows me knows that I always try to stick to the same pad of paper or colourway from Anice's funky hand cd's so this was a challenge and a half for dippy Lou here!!!!
In the end I went for some pretty Laura Ashley paper ( its nestled behind Aida) and some of my huge 12x12 stash. This huge 12x12 stash is what my gorgeous hubby bought me when I first got my cricut, so 5 years ago now and its awesome. I don't know who made it but it came in a mahoosive bag and even though I use some every week it is still going strong!! All the paper is thick,more like thin card, and double sided (yey!!!)
I chose a world mappy style one to go with the travelling theme.
You can just about make out the miss you sentiment and hugs and kisses a la cuttlebug love language cutting die. I cut them out of some corrugated card that Scott put aside for me from some parcels last week, its fab, love the effect it gives. I tied the hugs and kisses on with some garden twine and frayed the edges.
And of course, my little distrezz it all had a good buzzing today roughing up all the edges for me, love it!! its huge satisfaction at the touch of a button!!!!!! ;)
Aida got some promarker treatment and a good splodge of glossy accents on her roses on her hat, along with all the gold/brassy bits on her suitcases. I don't know why I love her so much, she just looks so lovely sat there on her suitcases.
A few blingy gems and I called her done!!!!
Today I am hitting the play area with the children. I am feeling rough with a sore throat so am taking some colouring to do with me and a magazine as they will be in there for hours, only emerging for drinks!! lol!!!
Have a fabby day peeps.
Hugs Lou xxx
