Unity & Make The Day Special

Hey! Short and sweet from me today.
Firstly a quick card in response to a challenge here

Want to see the sketch?

Mine is the sketch one- I’ve gone with the doodling and basic sketch. Done in super quick time because I didn’t have much at that point.
It’s also up at Make The Day Special
I did do another card – a complete fail. This one was the colour challenge also on that picture above. The sentiment messed it up- well, where I placed it to be precise. I think it’s good to share failures sometimes! Here it is!

Had to put it smaller- doesn’t deserve any more space 😉
Well- better go. Loving the rain. Not.
See you when I’ve dried out.
I have some cracking stories to share with you very soon !!! xx

casadiaHey, at last! It’s Friday! And I’m linking up to Wida Miller’s blog (Beachorada). She had an inspired idea to do a series called CASADIA- which is a card chain where you Case someone else’s card -or idea hence Case-idea–Casadia. You can read and see the card chain right here They are amazing- it’s so inspiring.

Now do you want to see the card I got to case?

Book worm Apr 2013This is designed by Tamara King & she blogs at Pickled Papercrafts. Now in case my logic isn’t obvious- these are the elements I’ve cased. I love the long tall shape & the stripe of white against the kraft. I’ve not kept the colour scheme but have used that design element. The other thing that inspired me was the twine flower- it reminded me of this set from Unity which I got from Make The Day Special. Although you can’t tell, the corrugated card is actually bright pink (Amy Tan) and behind the cut out swirl flowers is some more of the card at a different angle

I have to say a massive sorry to Wida for my tardiness. She said don’t hurry- which is a fatal comment for me. It went on the list but got quite far down so it got left a bit (ermm.quite a bit). Sorry about being the weakest link!

There’s usually family stories- but I’ll side with the sentiment on the card-and try and become quieter! (fat chance!).

See you when I’ve recovered from the silence! xx
