*WARNING: Long post with lots of babbling ahead - just scroll to the pic to check out my card! :D*
And a happy Bank Holiday weekend to those of you who've got one, and a happy Memorial Day Weekend to any American peeps reading! It may be soggy here today, but I won't let that dampen my spirits!
Thank you so much for the get well wishes; I think they're working! I had two really rough days but now feel much better! Let's hope I'm back to normal soon and can spend some quality time over half term catching up with everyone and everything!
I've not been well enough to tackle my crafty corner yet (it requires some tidying before I can even start to get inky!) but I hope to very soon! I do however have some news that has made me a very happy gal this week even though I've been ill....I'm going to be published! I've had an email from Embellish Magazine asking me to post them a card I made for their buttons challenge. I didn't share the card anywhere on the net, so you'll have to wait for the issue later on in the year to see my card (and inteview!) if it makes it across the Atlantic Ocean safely! Don't worry, I'll remind you when it's out LOL!
So what can I share with you today, apart from my new profile pic, you ask? I'm still playing catch up with some cards I've already made and y'know I was saying how it was one of my bestest bloggin' buddy Emma's birthday last Thursday? Seeing as I now know the card I made for her has reached her, I can share it with on here now!
Do you know how long I've been waiting for a crafty peep's birthday to arrive just so I could use that sentiment from PTI's Studio Style?! LOL!
You can't see on the pic, but the button jar is covered in Glossy Accents too for extra shine and my main panel is raised on 3D foam pads for extra dimension. That jar shines sooooooo much IRL - I'm still so hopelessly hooked on glossy accents *grin*
Stamps: Studio Style
Ink: Enchanted Evening/Spring Rain/Hawaiian Shores
Card: Enchanted Evening/Stamper's Select White/Spring Rain
Accessories: Cuttlebug/Nestabilities/Glossy Accents/Enchanted Evening Satin Ribbon/Martha Stewart Border Punch/Corner Rounder/Promarkers
As a sweet addition to the lil' gifts I gave Emma, I did also fill a glass spice jar with some yummy banana sweets (I think they're a favourite of Emma's - correct me if I'm wrong, hun!) and decorated it with some ribbon and a sweet label on the top but in typical style, I was so focused on getting this packaged for posting at a ridiculous hour of the night I forgot to take a picture of it!
Right then, I'm off to spend the weekend doing something other than sniffling and sneezing but before I leave ya, some of you have been asking me what Dandelion and Burdock is after mentioning it here. I guess it's a drink that's not common in all four corners of the world! If you wanna know, it's a traditional British, scrummy, fizzy, pop kinda drink made with...dandelion and burdock! My guy and I are D&B snobs; we only like the real deal and not the cheap imitation D&Bs full of sweeteners - check out Fentimans for a real taste of the good stuff; and that's exactly what we'll be indulging in this weekend. It's the simple things in life that keep me happy ;D!
Catch ya later!
