Can you believe it's the second week of February already! Where is the time going :-D
We're a poorly household at the moment - my small son has the flu and is feeling very sorry for himself. Actually, I feel quite sorry for him too, he laid on the sofa all day yesterday, and was so unbelievably hot! For a usually independent 5-year old he was wanting his mummy more than usual (that bit was quite cute really!), his legs didn't belong to him and he didn't want anything to eat, so I was passing him his drink with a straw, wiping his face with a damp flannel, and carrying him to the loo as the stairs wiped him out :-(. Daddy is looking after him today - what's the betting I go home and the pair of them are still where I left them this morning??
I've done something nasty to a tendon in my big toe, OMG - ouch!!! Maybe it's because I'm dosed up on painkillers that made me so calm yesterday! All I did was bend down to put some washing in the machine and it kinda pinged :-( It better sort itself out soon as we've got a black tie do at the end of the month, and I'm NOT wearing flats when I've got a gorgeous pair of heels bought specially (actually, two gorgeous pairs of heels, I couldn't decide which I preferred!!)
Anyway, enough of me moaning, onto today's card, which is for this weeks LCI Challenge as chosen by the lovely Laurie who wants to see your Pink plus One creations!
Now this challenge has been met with some headaches for the team, some of whom are complete pinkaphobes! I'm not overly keen on pink as a dominant colour, but think it looks pretty good with white and these Teresa Collins papers are detailed enough to keep a bit of interest.
I've had these shaped cards in my stash for ages, and I've never been that happy with anything I've made with them, but I saw an easel card at a craft show a while back that used shaped cards, and decided to "lift" the idea. I wish knew who to credit for the original idea, or even what stand it was on, I'm so sorry if it was you! A bit of organza ribbon acts as a stopper for the easel, and I've added a metal embelishment with a pink epoxy dot in the middle.
I've used Tic-Tac Love and this image is available from Ladybug Crafts Ink - isn't it cool! I've used it here for HB's valentines card, but I think it's great for anniversary's, engagement's or any other romantic occasion. I decided to fussy cut it, and 3D the "missing" pieces onto the edges of the main image - in reality they are further away - my friend Lisa has used the same image but she wasn't naughty with the scissors like me!! As always, I've coloured my image with copics - I love images like these as this one colours up really quickly (well, for me anyway, I usually fuss and it takes me AGES!!), and so are perfect for those "oops... I (nearly) forgot" moments!!
A Cheery Lynn die acts as a frame behind the image and a Marianne florish, flowers and pins finish my card off. I don't think it's too pink for HB!
Please may I enter these challenges
