Garden Cupboard!!!

Phew......I had a busy day yesterday. Started off with decorating. Just have a couple more pieces of paper to put up and I am done to the end of the landing and will only have the main staircase to do....yay!!! After that it just needs painting and then I can start on the bit I love which is chosing lights, pictures and accessories etc.
After that I had to go upstairs and pack cards ready to go down to the local shop this morning and then I had time to make a couple of quickish cards.

The card I am sharing today is a mixture of inky background and printed clip art.
For the inked background I first coloured the card using some one inch square ink pads and then I spritzed with a lilac Moonglow spray. It's very, very subtle and doesn't show too well in the picture.
The picture is PC Crafter and has been sort of decoupaged but I am a deco wimp and only did three layers.
Punched out two half circles on the background paper and tied the ribbon adding a QuicKutz tag for the greeting.

Today I have a couple of orders to finish, my room to tidy and then I am going to sit and do a load of prep for gifty things for the local shop and the Christmas Fair......well barring exploding lights and other sundry interruptions........lol!!!
Bye for now.

  1. Love the card Sheila! Don't blame you for only doing 3 layers. I personally don't really like more than 3 so this is just right for me.

    Well done on the decorating. Er, d'you fancy coming and doing mine (it is only a bungalow so no stairs)? Lol!
