Hi you all! First of all, thanks to all those yesterday who left me good wishes for my cat-scan. The appointment wasn't until 4.30 in the afternoon, so I tried to keep myself busy making cards and eating chocolate till it was time to go, as I was rather hyper.... I found a parking space directly in front of the radiologist's, so that was something. I was terribly nervous, I hate going into those machines, but the people were all very nice, and understanding, and did their best to calm me down. I didn't have to wait at all, so it was over in half an hour, but it was a long half an hour! Anyway, now it is over and done with, and I can go to my doc next week to get the results.
These are some of the cards I made in my nervous frenzy. The square cards are just under 7" square. I used a cream coloured card with a light shimmer. The first one has a background paper in 70s look, and some strips of different designer papers across the front. I once again used my umbrella man; this time cut from paper which had been painted and drawn on, and which I then cut up and used for die-cuts. I think the colours go very well with the background papers.
The second one is again various designer papers layered one over the other. 'Live' has been cut with a Sizzix die, and for embellies I used a gold-sprayed flower, a strip of gold embossed paper and a piece of thin ribbon.
This one has been made similarly, using different papers. The top paper is from Graphics 45, and the diamond in the middle has been cut double and decoupaged to give more depth. The word is again cut with a Sizzix die.
And here again, the same but different!
I am linking to Simon Says Stamp and Show Challenge.
I think these cards could be used for men or women; whatever, I am slowly replenishing my stock of cards.
Hope you all have great day, take care, and thanks for visiting!
