Hettie Jamming

Hi guys how are you all today?  Hasn't the weather turned nasty.  Gosh I wish this rain would go away, hate the rain I have to admit. Well I have just had a lovely weekend crafting, I actually had 4 days off in a row which was nice, got a good start on my christmas cards but I refuse to start putting them on here until November.  Don't you think christmas starts a little early, our garden centres are already starting to put the decs up and we haven't even got bonfire night over and done with. 

Well my post today was made as an order for a 21st birthday.  Now I have made a few for this customer so I had to come up with something different especially as I was making two for the same person, always difficult.

The image is one I have used before and shown on here actually, Jamming Janice from Mo Manning stable, a lovely image and so ideal for the younger generation.  My topper was coloured in with copics, die cut with a spellie die and I made a faux die to mat and layer.  My sentiment was printed out, die cut and inked up.  The flower is spellbinders too as is the flourish.  You know me and my flowers/flourishes, my trade mark I think hee hee.

The background was made with some music stamps from Dimensions, embossed with a music embossing folder and inked around using spiced marmalade from tim holtz.  All finished off with cosmic shimmer glue dots.  I think I am getting better at those now, more evenly spaced, practice is certainly the key.

Well I happen to know Hettie was pleased with this card and hopefully she had a lovely birthday. Hope you like it and thank you for popping in.  Take care and see you soon.
