Spots’n’Dots Cards & Laughter !

Thought I’d show you a card that I made with some friends last night. This was version 1 and I’ll show you version 2 at the end.
I’ve used a American Crafts stamp set called Fresh- that has all the stamps that I’ve used on the card. Paper is from Pebbles ‘Hip Hip Hooray’ range and the Kraft card was some I bought from the Aintree show- 1 of the 2 items I bought. This is a gorgeous colour- darker than the SU! stuff I usually use and with more texture to it. One side is slightly darker too so you can pick and choose. It is from a company called Anna Marie designs

I bought  A3 card for a change which is great as I can cut it to 12’x12 with some spare or 2 A4 sheets.

Think I like the red wellyboots or galoshes (isn’t that a yummy word) and the card is a celebration of spots, dots and polka dots! The dotted embossed piece is using the CuttleBug Swiss Dots embossing folder.

I raised certain sections and added glitter to the other. It’s not miserable rain (like in much of the UK)- it’s happy, shiny, fresh, go-and-run-jump and splash water!- that’s why there’s sparkle on it. I know not everyone likes wellies but it’s supposed to be fun! I’d happily wear a a pair of these babies despite not having high heels! 

This pic was supposed to have been rotated- but WordPress wasn’t cooperating- so it’s a peculiar angle- Sorry!

I had one of those evenings where I laughed and smiled for most of the evening. Sometimes it’s easy to forget how to laugh when you’re busy doing everything else. I think we redressed the balance last night- and I’ve a lot of laughter lines to prove it!! Even without any chocolate-fuel, Mara was on top form although Linda & I succumbed to some left-over-from Easter Maltesers!! You have to consume choc whilst crafting. Imagine not being able to make a card because you’ve run out of choc? 😉

Better run, the taxi-service is due back in action.I’ m gaining muscles like Popeye from lugging the wheelchair in and out of the car – and it doesn’t even fit in the boot!

See you when I’ve tidied my craft room- it’s a really really bad mess xx
