OFF THE RAILS TUTORIAL & ANOTHER FREAKING SCRAPPY CHALLENGE nov 14
Howdy, my scrappy friends! Over at OFF THE RAILS today, I'm sharing how I used the extra ATC's I made for the IDEAL ATC SWAP into cards!
I really enjoyed creating these little scraps of goodness with a pile of 3RD EYE STAMPS & Distress inks.....Here's the whole group of cards made by the girls in this particular swap, based on a winter theme along with something shiny:
Aren't they cute? Anyone can join in - first in first serve basis:) Here's a closie of mine:
...and if you'd like to see the cards I made, pop on over to OTR HERE:):)
ANOTHER FREAKING SCRAPPY CHALLENGE
I managed to sneak in this one as I was VERY taken by the sketch:
Can you guess WHY I like it??? LOL.....& it's NOT the photos!!! Oh, joy of joys, I can do LOTS of journaling:) AND I had sooo much that I actually did this [thanks AFSC!!!!!]
Journaling is beneath the LO below - don't kill your eyes!!!
Just a LITTLE journaling, tee-hee;) And Helen W, I was wishing I had your 12x12 printer...but this worked OK!!
I used a Stampin' Up roller stamp across the middle, then popped on some washi tape....
Added some little words & Freckled Fawn resin triangles & a dog clip:
And below is a chippy circle from the gorgeous Marie-Christine D...I backed it with pink paper so you could see the 'great' a bit better, then layered some washi for 'interest'.
The flair are from A Piece of Cake Designs & the word one from Flutterby Designs....for those who like a story, here is my journaling:
TAKEN FEBRUARY 1999 AT ST IVES – SNOWDEN PLACE – SYDNEY, WHERE WE ALL LIVED WHEN TOM WAS CEO & PRINCIPAL CHAPLAIN AT THE MISSION TO SEAFARERS.
WE’D ALREADY BOUGHT OUR HOUSE AT WOY WOY & WERE COMING UP MOST WEEKENDS – THE BOYS GOT INVOLVED IN BOTH TENNIS & SOCCER UP HERE
WHEN LUKE [TOM’S BASSETT HOUND] DIED, WE GOT BASIL. BUT HE WAS SLIGHTLY CRAZY & GOT RUN OVER BY A BUS [NO JOKE]. SO THEN TOM SAID “NO MORE DOGS!” BUT I WAS HOME, ALONE, MOST DAYS [DOING A BIT OF MOBILE HAIRDRESSING] & I DESPERATELY MISSED THAT ‘PRESENCE’ A DOG BRINGS.
SO, WHEN MERLE & BILL [TOM’S BRO] WERE OUT FROM NZ ON HOLIDAYS, WE FOUND OURSELVES ‘RESCUING’ CINDY, AFTER READING AN AD IN THE LOCAL NEWSPAPER UP AT GOSFORD. TOM WOULDN’T EVEN LOOK AT HER TO START WITH. HE SO DID NOT WANT A DOG.
WHEN WE BROUGHT HER HOME, TIM WAS SUPER EXCITED OVER THE MOON HAPPY. ALEX BURST INTO TEARS. HE STILL MISSED BASIL…
ANYWAYS, OVER THE NEXT 10 ODD YEARS, CINDY WORMED HER WAY INTO ALL OUR HEARTS. SHE MOVED WITH US TO WOY WOY & HAD A WONDERFUL LIFE.
SHE WAS UNWELL OVER EASTER 2010 FOR ONLY A COUPLE OF DAYS. BUT WE KNEW SOMETHING WAS BADLY AMISS. WE TOOK HER TO THE VET WHO TOOK TESTS & TOLD US TO RING IF SHE GOT WORSE. WE TOOK HER HOME, BUT UNFORTUNATELY, BEFORE WE COULD EVEN DO THAT, SHE DIED IN TOM’S ARMS. WE ALL HAD A BIT OF A CRY, OF COURSE.
AND NOW? NOW WE HAVE WALLY…
Blessings to you all ~ Lizzy ♥♥♥
PS: That is NOT stitching around the edge, but a stamp! Pretty neat, huh??!!!!
