I do hope you are all working on your submission for my blog challenge! Please … pretty please!!! 😉 I was beginning to worry that I wouldn’t have any gorgeous creations to judge … but the wonderful Aly has sent me her link! Thankyou Aly … I love your card … and I can’t wait to see what my other blog friends might have to offer! Don’t forget the deadline of Sept 1! This is so much fun! 😀
My card today is another entry for the Helping Hudson blog … and this time it is a technique challenge … we had to include embossing and sponging. Now … I spent AGES trying to get a good photo to show the glossy embossing on the butterflies … and on the leaves. I took night shots with flash / without flash … and muted light shots … and outside shots … and daytime with flash … and every angle possible for each of these scenarios … but it was almost impossible to pick up the glossy finish. So … you are just going to have to take my word for it … there is clear embossing on this card!!!!! 😀 😉 giggle!
Isn’t this colour combo just gorgeous!!! Yes … the new catty is here … and I have so enjoyed browsing through and examining all the colour combinations that SU! have put together on their stunning projects. This is one of them! I love that with each new catty comes HEAPS of ideas and inspiration … a new way of viewing colour combinations … and great accessories and accent ideas! This catalogue is worth having JUST FOR THE IDEAS!!! I guess that is why SU! call it an “Idea Book & Catalogue!”. I really enjoy pulling inspiration from this FAB resource! Don’t forget to order your new IB&C … my boxes should arrive any day! Get your wish lists ready! 😉 Off for coffee with Ness’ team … we have our monthly “goal setting” get together at a lovely little coffee house at Shellharbour Village. It will be nice to see all the girls … especially since I had to miss our team training night on Wednesday night. Then I have to be back by 12 noon to pick up Skye from her exams.
We are getting very frustrated with our internet … I won’t bore you with the details … but it appears we are going to have to change servers … to be included in a different coverage area. The end result should be worth it … but it does mean changing email addresses … and that is going to be a HUGE pain in the butt! 😦 😯 At the moment … we are not able to use our internet after about 6pm … because it has slowed down to 0.01 speed … and it should be around 0.5 – 0.8! (Not sure what that means … but Gav has been doing speed tests with the tech guy … and ours is dinosaur!) It takes about 20 mins to download a page! The wind storm definitely had an effect somewhere! So … you can imagine our pain and frustration!!! Hopefully … it will be fixed soon … but until it is … I know you will understand that I can’t do any chatting on forums … or posting … or blurfing at night. And … there is only so much you can fit in during the day! I hope you all have a happy day! Stampin’ Hugs xxx
