Humphrey's Corner - Another sneaky peek!!!

Morning everyone,

Sorry my post is a little late today but I had the most terrible nights sleep so I had an unexpected lie in after Tayla fell back to sleep and so did I! I spent most of yesterday packing up my craft room as we're going to start moving my stuff over at the weekend after my workshop at the Windmill craft centre.

This Humphrey's corner card has been made with a new feature on the CD rom which is called card companions. They are basically a ready made layout which you print out with toppers, sentiments and embellishments. With this card I cut out the square backing sheet and added it to my scalloped card blank, cut round my oval image and attached it to my card with collall 3D glue gel and added one of the 4 sentiments also included on the sheet.

I then added some glamourdust to parts of the image and a couple of paper flowers and diamantes and I ended up with a pretty quick and easy card. These are ideal for unexpected events where you need to throw a card together quickly, anyone new to crafting or to give to people who don't appreciate receiving a handcrafted card as they would never know the difference!

I will enter this into the following challenges:-

ECP - Pastel colours
Little claires - Sparkle
Creative inspirations - Glitzy and bling
OSAAT - Anything
Scrappy frogs - Anything goes
Craft your passion - Cutie patootie
Make it monday - Anything goes
