Good morning folks. Its me again. . . . . . . . . .just as you thought it was safe to come blogging lol!!!
Thank you for your comments on my tutorial. Glad that you will find it useful.
Thank you also to Myra, Marie and Mrs J for stopping by to comment. We are a friendly bunch, although Maureen can be a bit unruly at times and she and June are both trying to steal my wisterias. Hope you can pop by again soon.
Now, today we have another challenge over at MAWTT and Amy's choice of theme is . . . . . .
That was a bit of a curve ball for me as I don't have anyone I know of an age to be graduating from anywhere so I had no bits to work with and didn't want to buy any either, so this card is the love child of Heath Robinson and Blue Peter lol!!!
I cut out the shape for the top of the mortar board using an SB Diamond die. I then cut out the bottom piece by hand. Hope it looks reasonably like a mortar board shape lol!!! I topped it with a CE dazzler (the Jelly Tot sized one) and some Kumihimo cord that I frayed at the end and bound with some very fine gold thread.
The scroll is just rolled up card bound with some gold and black striped ribbon and some thin shamballa cord.
White and black card
Soft gold card (Limetree)
Memory Box Alphabet dies
That Special Touch Border Mask (used to emboss)
Black and Gold striped ribbon
I cut the letters into the card and did a little play on words with the "Congradulations" and popped some black card behind the "Grad" to draw attention to it.
Hopefully, you feel inspired to join in the challenge or at least pop over to MAWTT to have a look at the other DT cards.
Have had a few up and down days but still managing to do a little gardening and popped to our local Ikea yesterday where I managed to get another orchid for the princely sum of 30p. . . . . . . yes, that's right, 30p. It was in their Bargain Corner and is still in flower. I will take a photo for next time.
My birthday is coming up at the weekend. I'm facing it with trepidation as two years ago, I had Chicken Pox and last year the A/Fib started on my birthday too. Not sure what this year will bring. . . . . .Lassa Fever, Beriberi, Dengue, who knows lol!!! I'm hoping things don't come in threes on this occasion and I can just have a quiet and peaceful day with an alcohol free lager or two (it is my birthday lol!!!) that doesn't involve scratching or an ambulance ride lol!!!
But after Monday's sad events, I'll roll with the punches as there are folk a lot worse off than me.
On that note, enjoy your day and see you soon with Luca's clock next time.
