Card Ideas...

I'VE GOT BATTERIES!! Woohoo! I've got a mountain of ribbons that needs photographing so I suspect they wont last long, but at least I could take a picture of a card I made last night.

I am constantly asked to provide more card ideas for the site, using our products. Thus I decided to make some cards for that. First one is a "New Home" card. I'm quite into the "alternate" edge so this one has a rather funky one.

Brown Bazzill Bling for the basic card, Horseshoe paper inside, Basic Grey Mellow and Blitzen paper for the front. Leaves for the inside border cut on the Silhouette, Vine and grass likewise cut on the Silhouette. House from our 3D Embellishment range. Fibres and title are Basic Grey Mellow.


Batteries are like men, there's is never one around when you really need it (sorry, couldn't resist). I go through an extraordinary amount of batteries, which can't be good for my carbon footprint! All they have to do is make them last longer!! I'm sure it can be done! It's like cars, they could make cars that do not run on petrol and lasts forever, but of course the government would lose a mountain of cash in revenues and the car manufacturers would sit twiddling their thumbs. Batteries are relatively small in comparison but they must make an almost equal mountain of cash from them as I seem to spend the equivalent of my mortgage on them every month!

Every bloody thing needs them - the PC's mouse, loads of the girls games (Xbox, Nintendo DS's, Wii, Don't wake Dad game and so on), remote controllers, portable fans, and so on. The list goes on and on. I know exactly what has batteries in my house because right now none of them has any!! I have emptied each and every gadget in the house in my constant quest to satisfy my insatiable digital camera! This annoying twit drinks battery juice like a alcoholic deprived of drink for a month and out on a bender! Use the flash and you can maybe get 20 pictures out of it - if you're lucky!
I'll get off my sopabox now and go apply for a loan to buy some more batteries. Until the loan is approved I guess I wont be posting any more pictures!

How bizarre!!

My blog admin pages have decided to be bi-lingual! Most is in English but some is now in German! After posting I get asked if I want to view the blog in "einem neuen fenster"! Never seen that before! A little German Saurkraut gremlin in the works there me thinks!
I'm not well. I'm dead tired (the fact that I stayed up until 2:30 has nothing to do it!!), got a really sore throat and ear ache to boot! I cannot get ill, got too much to do! Just had a cup of Flue Plus so hopefully that'll do the trick.

HA HA HA, Amber is funny. She's just sitting there chatting (she's a right chatterbox) and just came out with "today at lunchtime I did a MAHUSIVE fart! It just went on and on" - "mahusive" is her new word for "massive". I'm sitting here laughing with tears in my eyes. The things children come out with!

OK, here's another card I did with Peppermint Twist Holiday Quilt paper. I cut the tree from leftover paper and matted it on some leftover BG Fruitcake Plaid paper (the reverse side). Just had some Funky Christmas Brads in so added one of those. Peppermint Twist Grand Adhesions and Chipboard are on there too, plus Dovecraft ribbons.

You can't see it but the paper is glittery. Here's is one with the flash on, the glitter is MAHUSIVELY exaggerated but at least you can see that it's there.

Right, I'm off to finish off what work I need to do then an early night for me! You do know I'm telling you this so I can get some sympathy don't you? Boohoo, poor me!

More Peppermint Twist

.... although this time it's half K&Co and half Basic Grey. Basic Grey Fruitcake Plaid paper with Peppermint Twist Grand Adhesions and chipboard.

Did you know there's a new range of Basic grey Christmas paper coming? I CAN'T WAIT!! Woohoo!

Peppermint Twist

Thought I'd have a little play with the new Peppermint Twist range by K&Co. This card uses the Special Delivery Embossed paper and chipboard.

New Goodies...

Lots of new stash arrived last week, the new Peppermint Twist by K&Co, Cloud9 Design and Heidi Grace stash, plus other luverlies. As I needed to make another wedding card I decided to try out the Heidi Grace papers and chipboard (Cherrywood Lane used here). Heart and wording was cut on the Silhouette. The chipboard looks quite purple on the pictures but is actually exactly the same colour as the flowers on the Heidi Grace paper.
Also seems like there's glitter everywhere on the picture but really you can't see that IRL - unless you have zoom vision, which I aint!

I'm expecting to be rid of the glitter on my face by next Wednesday!
