Bobbing Along

Morning... Not sure what's going on with blogger but it completely lost this post so here I go again!!

This weeks Less Is More is to make a Christmas Card that features a bird.  Can't wait to see what you all come up with

Life is slowly getting back to normal although I think my laptop has gone to heaven and taken every thing with it.. we are currently trying to recover absolutely everything from it :-( fingers crossed it will work.

For my cards today I have used the many of the same ingredients to make both cards. The images are the fabulous Bobby Along images from this months sponsor Pink Petticoat!


For the first card I cute out the aperture using rounded rectangle spell binders and the placed this over the image I have coloured in with promarkers and copics. It's finished off with a little glitter and some lucky limeade twine from Stampin Up.


As I have turned into a frugal crafter, I decided to use the negative from the aperture from my first card for the second.  The image is also coloured in with markers and then simply mounted onto the off cut.

That's all from me for today!

  6. Great idea to use the cut out from one to use as a topper on the other, both are super cards. It's very annoying when you type a post only to lose it!
