I m such a wally!!!

Well what else can I call myself? a few weeks ago there was a thread on UKS that one of the sponsors were looking for a DT team to showcase their new cardmaking kits, and I really really wanted to enter as I like the ladies the run the shop and I do like their scrapbooking kits but I m not a prolific scrapper as I ve only just started and didn t feel I would use a full kit every month so never subbed. So I did make a mental note of the 12 of august wich was the last day you had to get the entrys in, time went past and you ve guessed it yesterday I thought oooh I d better do some cards. and I did this one. Used an acetate card(I love this stuff keep your eyes open cos I ve got something cool to show you in a few days), I then cut my dress and the manechin form shaped the dress and stuck it in place,decorate it with microbeads,embossed a piece of DCWV card stamped the autumn leaves swirls straight onto acetate with staz on and again picked up some detail with those beads wich I ve also used to made a scalloped border,add little prima with a PM pearl brad, a little hero arts sentiment, and that s it!! Next so you have something to write your greeting on I cut a circle backed it with the background paper and then cut a border with my scalloped scissors.. Quite like how this one turned out

The next one I ve done last week cos I m also hosting this card swap on uks, and I ve made some cards for that as well as the audition. I ve used SU sweet treats for this as the nice wheather has definately inspired me to have a play with this set,used watercolours to colour the sundae then stickles glitter for the icecream and diamond glaze for the glass and the chocolate sauce wich you can t see in the picture but it looks quite good IRL.Lastly I ve made a tag with all the scraps left over.I ve used a sizzix tag and cut some chipboard(I could use this as a topper me thinks) then I ve embossed a pink card used some scraps of 3 bug in the rug_tickled pink paper some doodlebug paper frills,crystal gems watercoloured and cut the image of a sundae,glittered glazed and popped on 3 d foam pads,dotty ribbon finishes it off. So I ve got everything photograped and ready to send but of course now I couldn t find the thread with the email so I ve agonized all day trying to find it >>NOTHING. Then in a final attempt I ve sent Loraine at GO GO an email explaining how I m ready to upload the work. Meanwhile found the thread managed to get everything sent returned to the forum and guess what was there. a thread anouncing the winners for the very DT team I was trying for DOH!!. Well I felt so very stupid I can t tell you. So yes I am a WALLY for leaving everything at the last minute. Never mind I ll just have to be inspired by the new DT as they are a really talented bunch, and I ll just have to sub. to the kit. So sorry to have gone on and on...see ya
Shop Stampin' Up!
