Fun and Cute....no not me, the card!

Hey!

Hope you're enjoying your weekend so far....it's soggy at our end but we've got a nice date night planned including popping out for some Mexican food and a trip to the cinema. Just gotta love lil' nights out like that ;D

Thank you so much for your really positive comments about my video tutorial - y'all so sweet! I'll definitely think about doing some more - lemme know if there's anything else you wanna see...within reason of course LOL!

Today I'm squeezing a card in before a deadline (as usual!) if you haven't already checked out Moxie Fab World, the other week they challenged us crafty peeps to try different styles of cardmaking with their Card Style Week . Now I went easy at first with the Clean and Graphic style, and there's just no way I'm even attempting the Shabby and Vintage, but I found I could challenge myself a little and go with Fun and Cute:

Card Recipe
Stamps: Hero Arts/PTI(sentiment)
Ink: Memento Black/Distress Ink Antique Linen
Card: PTI Vintage Cream/Kraft
Paper: Original Japanese Washi Paper
Accessories: Promarkers/PTI Cream Twine
/Glossy Accents

This card totally came together from the Moxie Tuesday Trigger for this week. Finally! I get to play along with a Tuesday Trigger!

Those lanterns reminded me of an old Hero Arts set I had which needed some inky lovin'. To make up for my neglect, I dressed up my Japanese Doll with original Washi Japanese Papers - I like to think she's got style! Oh and I complete covered her hair in Glossy Accents "Because she's worth it!" LOL!

Loadsa dimension going off on this card btw but the thing I like best is the twine used to hang my lanterns from!

So y'see I am spending my time wishing I was at CHA creatively still...what shall I make next? LOL!

Catch ya later!

Loving this card Aimes, I remember this cute little stamp :) Great use of the lanterns and twine, loving all your little details of her glossy hair and Japanese print outfit too.

Enjoy date night tonight, what film you going to see?

Take care, bye for now,

Love how everything pops on those dimensionals :) Totally fun and cute...just like the artist :) Let's drown our sorrows together about not being at CHA...are your friends who are there buying you a bunch of stuff? Ah, the boat blow up...very fun!!! The best part was coming across all the festivities by accident :) Have a fun date night!!! Which movie? We tried to see Salt last night but it was sold out so we rented Crazy Heart. Have you seen Inception? Great, but weird!! Hugs!!
