Glitter Doodles . . . . . . . .

Good morning everyone. Hope you are all fine and well and that Storm Angus hasn't done any damage in your area.

I'm plodding along, a few rough days and not so bad days but trying to keep positive. 

A little shout out for MAWTT. Wendy is looking for a couple of new folk for our DT. We're a friendly bunch and you would only need to make one card per month for the challenge blog. If you are interested in joining our happy band, please leave a comment on here and I'll pass it on to Wendy or please get in touch with Wendy via MAWTT.

Now, I still have a couple of cards to show from John's last shows. This one is the Doodle Rose Wreath cut out 4 times, including a double sided sticky layer and polished silk glitters brushed into the flowers and leaves. . . . . yes, I did have to do each flower and leaf individually - time consuming but therapeutic lol!!! 

Ivory, raspberry and brunswick green Foundation card
Sue Wilson Doodle Rose Wreath die set
CE Jacobean Floral embossing folder (used the debossed side)
John Lockwood sentiment stamp
Rose Copper and Dark Emerald Polished Silk Glitters
Cottage Ivy Memento Dew Drop ink
Pink Pearlage

I've still got cards to show for the shows before last with the Mauritius dies lol!!!

A short post today but I hope that you are all enjoying your weekend and that the coming week is kind to each and everyone of you.

Be good.

  4. Beautiful, Ang. Sometimes it is good to see and spend a long time making a card and get lost in it. I'm into paper piecing at the moment. Takes ages but looks so effective.

  9. Well Ang you must have the patience of an angel to make this card but at least it keeps you sitting down and occupied while you do it. Looks so effective. Had plenty of rain overnight here it's just grey and miserable now. Hope you have a better week this week. Love from Jackie xx

  10. Hello Ang, this is lovely, clean and crisp.
    I hope you have lots more better days and can kick the "not so good" ones into the long grass. (that comes from being married to a novice footballer/cricketer/golfer/bowler and now he's so old, sleeper in the chairer!!!)
    love Maureen xx
