Turkey Dinner

oh my what a hassle it's been to get this simple little card loaded up to share with you - no internet yesterday as we had to disconnect and move things about ready for the new boiler (the phone socket is going to end up in the boiler cupboard unless we move it), then this morning no blogger, and even now it's a slow painful business to type .. ..

I can't get to my craft desk/stash at the moment as it's behind the boxes of boiler and bathroom fittings in the conservatory, so I'm having to make do with just a few bits and pieces I've got here in the living space. I had the pink flowers and green swirls in my bit box and the paper is more from the Papermania pack. Please excuse the wonky picture again, and for some reason my camera wont go into macro mode to take close ups for you. I've coloured with Copics and inked the edges of the card, paper and image to give a slightly vintage feel - I was going to add some Stickles to the santa hat the pup is wearing, but can't get to them, fortunately I'd not put the packet of pink gems away that I picked up recently so was able to add a little bling to the centre of the flowers. It's a simple little C6 card that will do nicely for one of the neighbours that I've not gotten to know yet.

I was too late to add my card to this week's Cute Card Thursday DT collection, and mine is rather simple anyway, do go and check out the fabulous creations the rest of the DT have made. Our theme is to add a number so I've stamped the LOTV little text in the middle of my die-cut star.

The Charisma Cardz challenge is for spots - mine are sparkly ones on the background paper although they don't show up too well in the picture. And can anyone tell me how to link up my card to the Charisma blog .. .. I can't see a linky anywhere.

I'll try to visit a few blogs this evening, internet connection allowing that is, and in between stripping wallpaper in the bathroom!

  8. Well I have to say I think you are being extremely resourceful under very trying circumstances. Not sure I would call this simple & I love the colour combination & the way the turkey is gorgeously golden - I can really sense the golden roasting from basting.
    Take care & much love
