CARDS... AND A SONG

Here is three of the cards I made yesterday:

ABOVE AND BELOW: I have a girl at Stew's work in mind for this one! Can you see the glitter I put on her boobs! LOL
ABOVE AND BELOW: Front and Middle of card.
ABOVE AND BELOW: Front and Middle of card.

I really need to get some stamps with common sayings on them, like 'Happy Birthday', 'Congratulations', etc! I don't have any. Will check out Trademe (like e-bay) over the next week or so and hopefully pick some up cheap.

ABOVE: This is what I put on the back of all my cards. I love that fish kiss stamp!


Now for the 'song' part of this post! I saw this young man singing on YouTube.. it is worth a listen I PROMISE!....

It's saturday, Stew is home for the next week... yaaaa! Poor bugger needs the break too.. he's knackered. Work has been crazy/busy for him for months.

ABOVE: the cards I am working on this morning! I have run outta glue! And I also want to find me bits of paua shell... got some 'somewhere'.... to add to the front of these cards....
We went out for a drive... I wanted to check out a Scrapbooking place my friend told me about in Panmure.. and it is AMAZING! It sells fabrics and scrapbooking stuff, and stamps etc.... truly amazing shop! I will have to go there again when I have some cash to spend! Today... I'm broke! *sniff*
Had a healthy carb-less kebab for lunch at Sylvia Park then we came home and I've been mucking around with a couple more cards. It is a gorgeous day out there, so Stew is watching the kids ride their bikes in our little street. So it's nice and quiet inside. Neat.
Oh and I found my paua, but am not using it on those cards afterall.. it would be 'overkill' if I did. And YES, the jandals (thongs) are fabric.
End of Day: ***PEPSI UPDATED***. It's been a really neat day. Productive. I like productive... lol.
nite nite.

  4. I love, love, love these! I don't know if it's because I'm not much of a sewer, or if it's because I just really like cards. These show so much orginality and it's totally you. You could sell these too!
