Bustin' out!


Hi Peeps!

I've had this card absolutely bustin' to get out of my Fluffy little head all week and by yesterday, I could take the pressure no more! With Very Understanding Hubby safely installed at work for the evening (locked him out again last night - oops! Will that ever stop being funny?) and Sweet Cheeks tucked up in bed, I took myself off to the snug. Et Voila! (That's for you Delphine, and it was all me baby!)

Or rather not. See, the card I had in my head, was black, white and kraft, with three squares cut from a large flower stamp I have, all different, but corresponding, if you know what I mean and a big ribbon bow on the right side, top to bottom. Except, when it came to it, the brilliant idea in my head just wasn't working and the flower squares looked a bit flat and naff. So, this is what happened instead!

I think I like it, I'm certainly enjoying playing around with different things at the moment and the release of pressure on the Fluff matter, is huge! Have a great day. It's nearly the weekend. It is Friday today, isn't it? ;)

I'm going to enter this card in at:

oooh this is perwettie. I'd like to see the kraft version you weren't so keen on too - unless you've already relocated it to the B1N file!

I've only locked my hubby out twice in 16 years - but been very entertaining!

Oh this is soooo beautiful Faye! I love the green flower! Isn't it funny how the art you have in your head migrates to something completely different when you try to put it on paper. That happens to me ALL the time! LOL! Have a lovely weekend. keeleyxx
