Two Card Tuesday, whooo....


Hello and happy Tuesday to you all, I hope you are embracing this
glorious weather! although I must say it is quite deceiving, there am
I opening all the windows, next minute I had to put my heating on
as I was feeling cold!
I have made two cards today for two separate challenges the first
one is for the Sugar Bowl Challenge 31 following Judy's fab sketch
with the please include being Stars. So here is my little Rock
Star, with added stars, now this little rubber stamp is definitely
a Sugar Nellie but he doesn't appear to be on their website any
longer, can someone help? I can't think why, he is gorgeous!
I also forgot to put my base paper on before I stuck these two
pieces down, duh! I did try and lift them off but gave up as I
did not want a distressed look this time! Hee hee. I have water
coloured my image and used some eyelets for the centre stars
and the four corners, I have even got out some shrink plastic
(I forgot what fun this is) so I stamped and cut the corners of
this fab green shrinky stuff
then heated to make this little tag, tied with string,
which you can see got caught up because the hole was
too small but I like this effect ha ha so left it! the stamp
is from Dovecraft.
Keep Rockin sentiment was done with doodlebug rub-ons.
Now my next card is for the Digital Tuesday Challenge 50
which asks for something for St.Patrick's Day or lots of
Green! so here is my little take on this fab challenge,


This cutie little pie is called Lillian and she is a free
digi download from the lovely Scrapfairy blog here
those fabby four leaf clover flowers have been made
with my heart punches, large and small and fixed
together in the middle and I have cut the stalks out
freehand, how fab are they didn't even have to
look too hard for them ha! the little ditty (as they
say) I found in a Children's Big book of Stories and
Nursery Rhymes, I was reading some to my niece
on Sunday and came across this one!........ just to
let you know I had forgotten how horrible the
story of Snow White was!!! the Queen first tried
to strangle her, then sent the huntsman out to
kill her and bring back her heart and liver (which
he killed a bear and brought that back, and she
ate it)!!! Crikey!! then poisoned her, blimey
just because she was jealous of her beauty!! Scary
or what, who wants that weight on their shoulders!
anyway getting back to my card, water coloured
the lovely Lillian, I was itching to paint her pink
maybe next time, Think that's everything, have
a lovely evening, TFL, Happy Crafting, Sue xx

2 lovely cards Sue, have to say I especially love the SN one, your little rock star is adorable. Love the shrinky tag too - I'm scared of shrink plastic, it always goes wrong for me but now I want to dig it out and play!

Hugs, Nicki, xx
