I did something, I promise!
I am home, sick. The flu hit me like a ton of bricks. My DH has been struggling with it since last week, but typical male, he refused point blank to go to the doctor, so he gave it to me instead. And don't you know what? He is insisting that I go to the doctor. Can't help but laugh at male logic!
After marking those dissappointing exam papers, I just had to do something to cheer me up. I have seen these fantastic cards on several blogs lately and find them very interesting. I finally found a fantastic tutorial on The Craftiblog (http://craftiblog.wordpress.com). It is actually pretty simple to make, but it looks awesome. I have already had several people at school asking me to make them one for birthday cards, so it seems to be a hit
The papers are all from Basic Grey's Porcelain range (don't you just love them?)
My favourite stamp, coloured with my trusty Copics and glitterified (is that even a word??) with Making Memories glitter glue. The flower is a paper rose that I picked apart and the charm is from my local habberdashery. The butterfly stamps are from the box of throw away stamps from a friend. Bet you she is sorry she gave them away now! Inks are Stazon Black and ColorBox pink. The brad is from stash, can't remember who made it.
