Way behind

On Shimelle's first class prompts so I thought I would combine the first two into one, metal and pattern paper. I pulled out some old foil sheets that have been floating around my stash for years (we moved here almost 8 years ago and I think I may have had them before then) brads, eyelets, alphabet brads, bead chain and an old bookplate that I think is from a similar era to the foil sheets. The alpha brad was originally pewter so I dunked it in some silver embossing powder to tie it all in. The word little and clouds cut with the silhouette and fish cut using quickutz cookie cutters and embossed using a cuttlebug bubbles embossing folder. Font is 2 peas tasklist. the cloud on the right looked heaps darker than the others in this shot although it is only a tiny bit darker, weird huh. Oh and the PP is cosmo cricket.



I made this card a couple of weeks back from a gorgeous set of unity stamps my wonderfully talented and generous friend Donna gave me as a Christmas gift. Love it when a card comes together very quickly because the stamps are so cute.

Now I have to run to catch up after the enormously busy time I had last week. Travelled over 2000 km, went to a wedding, a funeral, cuddled brand a new baby and not so new baby, baby sat my 2 year old nephew (twice), went to the folk festival, caught up with family and friends helped my oldest son move into a new home (by new I mean new to him not brand new)comforted my second son after the tragic loss of a close friend and my husband after the loss of a family friend, worked, baked for number three son to take on a holiday he was going on with friends of his, attended two meeting, paid the bills, went shopping as well as the other usual things that come our way all in the space of a week such as sport and training, so glad we were able to rest on Sunday.

This scrap page is just amazing Susy. I love every little bit of it and am thinking I'll have to CASE it as closely has possible. Love the DSPs and LOVE LOVE LOVE the embossed foil FISH header. WOW. Wish I knew what a Quickcutz cookie cutter was...will have to investigate this!

Thanks for the bucketload of inspiration.

Beautiful as always. I love the colours on both projects - they are bright but muted, if that makes sense. I got some copic markers today and loved playing with them. I already feel like I need to increase my stash.
