BAD BLOGGER, BAD! I know. Where have I been?
Working my little tail off. But things seem to have calmed down now and have a new found balance between work and home life. Up until recently it was work/eat/sleep with no real time for anything else. So my creative side has been bursting to get out!
The colours for this card seem fitting for today. We went to the oyster festival, and it was sooo hot that I got burnt. Over the course of this evening I have turned a lovely shade of red. And of course I don't tan, I peel which is the worst because it's like having dandruff all over you :( I should've known better!
So it was my friend/colleague's birthday yesterday, and this is what I gave her (along with a hilarious retro quote book which was so good I had to get me one too).Unfortunately she's moving to melbourne shortly, but guess where I might be staying when convention rolls around ;)
So a pretty simple card really. Embossed on cameo coral, sponged the edges and corners. used two colours on the leaves and petals to add shading. Two way glue + glitter makes a big difference. I'm not a glitter girl but it "makes it" Rock n roll the sentiment using cameo coral then regal rose. Oh and the ribbon is so EASY. Sticky strip across the card, then adhere end of ribbon and start folding back as you go across. No stitching required!


  1. As always jsut gorgeous, so glad you and your mojo are back. We missed you babe. Did i read you mentioned convention in melbourne ? woohoo.

  2. Thanks for visiting my blog Yvonne & love this card so pretty & I hope Sarah had a great day :)
