The Wait is Over!!!

Thursday, 23 October 2008
Finally I hear you cry!! Yes, I've actually made a card!! With the exception of the SS Swap, this is the first card I've made in about 6 months and I feel so happy and proud about it.

It's my mother-in-law's birthday tomorrow and when I woke up this morning I just decided that I wanted to make her card when I got home from work. I've not felt like that in a long time.

Anyway, it gave me a chance to put into practise all the things I've learnt watching video tutorials on using my Copics and I just love them!! I'm no way an expert but I like what I've managed to achieve with this card. I would also like to thank everybody that I've emailed asking for tips as your advice has been greatly appreciated.

I used one of my new Forever Friends stamps and coloured them with the copics before backing onto some mirri car. I've then taken a sheet of dp from the Party Time FF paper set and backed this onto mirri card and attached some ribbon before mounting onto a card blank from Craftwork Cards. The sentiment is also from CWC, before finishing off with the obligatory gemstones. I've also added some stickles to the spray from the bottle but I don't think this shows.

I apologise for the poor quality of the photo but it's hopeless trying to take any decent photos indoors at this time of year.


I'm off now to colour some more images!
Thanks for stopping by and for any comments you may leave.
