I seem to be posting a lot at the moment,hence the heading above. I’d like to think it was my creative side seeking an outlet but I suspect it’s my lazy side avoiding doing things around the house. Ah well, we are what we are. So today I’ve made a birthday card for my youngest daughter, who is approaching her thirtieth birthday. The youngest is nearly thirty. That means I have to own up to being old enough to have three children OVER thirty! Noooooooooo!!
I had to go and have a lie down but I’m OK now.
So, made a birthday card, which, of course, I can’t show you, world, because she’ll see it before she gets it and I don’t want to spoil the surprise. It’s about one of her favourite subjects, so I think she’ll like it but we’ll know when she calls us on Sunday. I also made some Christmas cards, well, it’s September and I’m not quick.
I used a stamp to get the tree shapes and then filled them with Tangles, sponged the edges in sepia to match the pen and mounted them on oddments of paper I had in a drawer waiting for just this moment. They are on craft card bases and I quite like them. So it was late in the afternoon when I surfaced and realised it was Monday, soon to be renamed Divaday in my house. And the Challeneg this week is a duotangle of two of my favourite patterns – Diva Dance and Phicops.
But just the two – not a match made in Heaven in my opinion. I was going to draw several little Phicopses and fill in between them with Diva Dance and then I thought of something else. I haven’t looked on the Diva’s blog yet but I’m betting loads of people have done the same. Well, in for a penny…
Later, much later, I suddenly saw how I should have done it so this is what I did and I like it sooooo much better.
