It's much to early to start!

This is just not normal... Up at this hour in a Sunday!! Ready to start again!! I should still be lounging in bed having a lie in, taking it really easy.... but no. Soon as one eye opens my brain kicks in and plants a card idea in my head. Can I get back to sleep after that???? Not a chance... so here I am... finishing off blogging what I should have uploaded yesterday but didn't because my brain and I had yet another idea.

I hope this card is in time for the challenge over on Tilda & Co . The challenge was to make a Mother's day card whilst using something recycled. The coloured background was first put through a cuttlebug embossing folder and then I attacked it with my trusty supracolour II pencils, to make it a bit more interesting. For the 'Recycled' part I used some ribbon cut of a tshirt (from the annoying hangy bits they put in the shoulders)! and a button from something, not sure what.



This gorgeous anniversary card was completed for the challenge over on Caardvarks . My brain and I had a bright idea whilst completing this card. I've seen somewhere, on some other cards, part of the stamped image has been done on patterned paper and the carefully stuck on... so I had a go. I really like the result too. Paper is from K& co.




Now... I'm off to finish my first morning cuppa and wake up a bit more, I'll be back later with some more cards I finished yesterday. Have a good morning :)
