Prickly

Casology have a new cue and it's
 
 
I was given a pack of shaped sticky post-it's as a gift a while ago. They where all very cute but I found them to be too small for my liking so they lay in my drawer for a while. Then I had a brainwave. I stuck a whole whad of them together to give the image some dimension and turned them into tags.
Here are some hedgehogs
 
 
Here are the ones I made with the mushroom post-its.
 
 
Supplies:
Card stock: 160gsm in white
Hedgehog shaped post-its
Scraps of paper
Pentel fine liner in black
Glitzin' Glamour silver glitter

For old times sake

I was tidying out a cupboard the other day and I came across a small hard briefcase which I had totally forgotten about. It was in essence my first 'craft room'. It contained my entire craft supplies for when I first started making cards. Hard to believe when I now have an entire room dedicated, almost solely, to my sewing and craft stuff!!! Anyway inside where some old cards from that time. Very amateurish but I guess we all had to start somewhere and I had a lot of fun.
 One of them fits the challenge over at Butterfly spot challenge this month which is
'Butterflies, Y is for you choose and/or Wedgewood blue'

So just for old times sake here it is

 
I splattered two of the butterflies using a stencil and and air brush and then double stamped the other two. The 3D butterflies where embossed too before they where coloured in with a felt tipped pen.

Even though I made this card a long time ago, when I was browsing a gallery over at Split coast stampers FS550 this card of Diane's reminded me immediately of my card. So I will be using it to honour her.
 
 
Supplies:
I have no idea after all this time!
