It's My Day!

I'm scheduling this one, fingers crossed .. .. it's my DT creation for this week's Cute Card Thursday challenge to include a touch of lace on your project. Please stop by the CCT blog for information about the prizes and to see what the rest of the DT have made.

I've used another of the new Furgus MacFluff digi images from Pachela Studios available at Cuddly Buddly, this one is called 'It's my day' and I've turned Furgus into Fergie! I got a little carried away with the theme, and because I coloured my image then couldn't find any cardstock to match the pinks I used, I didn't bother with any and went all out with the lace, satin ribbon and pearls. To embellish I punched out the little butterflies from pearl paper and created the flower accent from odds and ends in my stash. You can get the pearl string trim at Cuddly Buddly here, I've used the white 2.5mm on this card.

Furgus/Fergie is coloured with Copics E40 - E47 with pinks RV10, 32, 34 and 42 plus E04 for shading them. The greens are G000, 00 and 02, and the shading is done with cool greys.

The Stamp Something blog is having a digi challenge week so I'll enter with them, and the Allsorts challenge is for a free and easy July. Cutie Sunday's challenge is for lace, so I gotta enter with them!

I'm a bit under the weather, hence the scheduling, and need to rest up for a few days. The legal side of my Dad's affairs is causing me a few headaches and I've been getting a bit stressed out with it all so need to retreat. I find colouring helps but the computer makes me tired so I'm not going to be around much until I've got my energy reserves back up again. I do have some more cards to schedule so there will be something for my friends to look at for the next few days - if you want to that is.

  3. Loving the lace, ribbon and pearls on your creation Annie. Furgus is a cute chappie isn't he. Your pearly butterflies are just the perfect finishing touch.

    Rest up and I hope you'll be feeling a little better soon.


  4. Take care Annie & rest as much as you can. I know the legal side is stressful so if there's any help we can give, just ask & we'll do our best. As to your card it's delightful with the ribbon & lace, beatifully feminine & Fergus works very well as Fergie! Love that little floral spray.
