New Challenge #10 at Morgans Art World

Hi,
Well I'm gearing up all ready for my Sister-In-Law's Wedding tomorrow,
think she's had me pampered to the extreme.
Nails are done, Hair is getting Dyed and Cut today, 
and for the 2nd time ever I am having a Spray Tan 
(the last one was a disaster - gulp).
Even got a nice pair of shiny Metallic Silver Trainers to wear,
hopefully they wont look to daft with a 
Cadbury Purple Bridesmaid Dress!!!

Well here is my Card for this Fortnight....

Don't forget, if you come join us over at 
Morgan's ArtWorld Facebook Group

(Both from Glitter Magic)

Once I had placed the Image in the Center of the Card,
I took the 2 Largest Size Circles from the 
Silver Glitter Circle Peel-Offs
(Paper Cellar)
which fitted perfectly around the outside 
of the card and around the Image..

For my Gems I added both AB Pale Pink Pearls and
AB Pale Purple Pearls
(stash)
which I placed around the Image in alternating colours.

Finally I added a handmade Bow using

New Challenge #187 at Glitter N Sparkle

Hello All,
Well I'm glad to say the sun has been out occasionally
recently so I managed to get the front garden sorted.
Well OK, I kind of stood around and informed the 
other half he had to do all the weeding and hard stuff.
I did pick the litter up if that counts hehe.

Well next week will probably be a rather hectic one,
as my Partners Sister is getting Married 
and I'm a Bridesmaid.
no doubt I will fill you in after the event next week.

My Project this
week is:-
Jessica b. Giggles Digi Stamp
(One of our sponsors)

To begin with I used part of a Template from a Box,
'I Support You'
(My Time Made Easy - Lauren Meader)
Of which I just used the Lid Top and the Decorate Inlay Templates.
(But I used a Heart for the Insert cutout rather than the Oval).

Firstly I cut out 2 of the Lid Tops.
1 in White Card and 1 in Pale Pink Card
(both from stash)
I then affixed them together at the Top of the Card 
and made 2x 6.5cm Long Rectangles 
(folded in Half) from the spare White Card
and attached them at the Bottom so the Card could stand up.

Secondly I printed off a copy of the Backing Paper 
which came with the 'I Support You' Pack.
and I used it to cut out the Decorative Inlay Template.
I then went around all the edges with Iridescent Pastel Pink Glitter.
(Glitter Magic)

Next I printed off the Image
on White DC Paper
And coloured it in using my Promarker Pens.
Satin
Blush
Putty
Sunkissed Pink
Coral
Pale Pink
Dusky Rose
Antique Pink
Carmine
Cyan
Sandstone
Cinnamon
Cocoa
Chestnut

For the Sentiment I used one of the Verses 
which came with the 'I Support You' Pack,
(It is actually the same words that are on the Backing Paper but in a Verse.)
I Cut it out using a Scalloped Oval Die
(X-Cut - XCU503406)
and I went around the edge using my Pale Pink Promarker.
Then I attached it to the Back of the Base Card.

For Decoration I first added a Strip of
22mm Pale Pink with Hearts Satin Ribbon.
On top of that I placed a Handmade Bow,
made from 15mm Cerise Pink Satin Ribbon.
(both from Boyes Haberdashery)
To finish it off I added a medium sized
Pale Pink Paper Rose.
(Papermania)

Finally I added 6mm AB Pale Pink Pearls
(stash)
3 to each of the Card Ribbon Ends.

Hi,
Well its been a good week,
if not a bit wet and cold outside.
Really hope that the weather picks up soon,
as its getting to dreary to do anything exciting.

I would really like to thank Sue from Ike's Art this week,

It is really appreciated Sue by me and all the Girls.

'Hanz So Hunky' and 'Sleya'
(from the Sexy Star Wars) Digi Stamps

To begin with I used a Pre-Cut White Base Card
(stash)

I cut the Images out using the 
Shape of the Card as a Template.
On the Second Background I lined up where the
front of the Card was going and then cut out 
the Side Pieces so that they lined up with it.
(so when you look at the Card they flow into each other.

I then added Glossy Accents
(Ranger)
to both pairs of Boots, the Light Sabre,
Sleya's Belt and Hanz's Belt Buckle.

Finally I added Silver Bobble Peel-Off  Strips
(stash)

New Challenge #185 at Glitter N Sparkle

Yay,
I am now finally all caught up with my Blogs.
It really has been hard not being able to share,
but fingers crossed its all plain sailing from here on.

As for the rest of life,
well things have been good.
At Easter we had a big Family Holiday up at Kelder Forest,
where my Parents and my Partners Mum finally met for the 1st time.
We also had a lovely day out at Beamish, while we were up there.

On the College front things are going great
and I have nearly finished my 1st year (Level 2 AAT)
I've got 2 more exams both at the end of May then I'm all done.
So Job Hunting here we come,
and hopefully I will be able to afford
to do my Level 3 AAT next September.
So talk about getting scared,
I'm so nervous even just thinking about going back to work,
but I know I have to do it.

With everything that I have had to do this weekend,
I kinda cheated this week.
(as you all know I feel like its cheating
if I don't colour in the Images myself)

The Theme at
Anything Goes

Our Sole Sponsor this week is:-

Once Printed off I used the Insert Template to Cut out the Image
