Makeover!

Do you ever put cards together, then look at them and think 'that's not quite right?'

That's what happened with this one ....

I made it from leftover bits from a project last month. When you print the House Mouse design sheet you get a lot of extras, too many for one card, so I used a leftover small image & greeting to make this dinky A6 card, with a snippet of lilac card from the earlier project. 

But I didn't like the finished effect, so put it aside. When I woke up this morning at the crack of you must be joking, I was wide awake with nowt to do but stare at the ceiling. So......


I changed the colour of the card candi, added a few paper flowers from my oldest stash (got the most ginormous bag of these die cut flowers when I started crafting and still have hundreds left!). Then I added an ickle bit of Stickles glitter glue to the ends of the knitting needles & the small flowers (probably doesn't show up in pic)

Et voila!! A card I'm happy with, to pop in my basket for whenever I need it. 

Off to link this to Pixies Snippets Playground, think I might have to climb over the gate (watch out for the stinging nettles!) if Miss has locked up!! (If you have no idea what I'm blathering on about click here!)

Whilst I was in my craft room I also stamped off some cute images to colour, so off to catch up on this week's Create & Craft that I've recorded, with my stamped images & my Pro Markers!

Thanks for stopping by

  2. Wow Debs, what a difference. I already like the original card you showed here but isn't it amazing how the bright colours and bling gave it that 'oomph'!.

    Yup, you were last into the Playground today - I hope you swept the tree house out before leaving :)

    Sunshine and ain't the weather grand down our way - way to go!

    Have a super weekend, hugs, Di xx

  3. Will you lot stop talking about your sunny weather . . .it's been raining for the last 2 days and is just grey here today so far - not worth risking putting the washing out.

    Right, now I've got THAT off my chest . . . on to your card(s). Think I marginally prefer the first card . . .but actually they are both fine . . .I think you're being too hard on yourself.

    Hugs, Sarn xxx
