A big thank you first of all today, to CASology for the Honorable Mention for last week’s Wild Hair Day card … I’m most definitely honoured to get it 🙂 Big thanks too for all the visits and comments … I’m enchantée’d by it all! So much so, I found myself inspired again … but more about that later!
On to this week’s challenge, where the cue word is ‘Sugar’ (how delicious!). My first thought was chocolate (am I alone in this?) … quickly followed by ice-cream, with cake rapidly catching up on the outside. I promised myself this week I’d have a bit more colour on my cards, so chocolate was out (it’s so … er … brown) and sadly, it’s not the season for ice-cream (apolgies to those
addicts afficianado’s who consider any time of year is ice-cream season). So by the time the qualifying was over, it was cake on pole position … with the others taking the second and third spots on the grid (is there such a thing as spots on grids?). Can anyone tell that Dominic was watching the Grand Prix Qualifying on TV whilst I was creating?
So, onto today’s card. Pink Petticoat have some fabulous images (I’ve done a link (yippee, knew that knowledge would come in handy!) just in case you want to have a look) so I used one of those, coloured with Promarkers, jazzed up a little with gloss, glitter and gems and popped up with foam dots. The tag is just a mini version of the main image (miniature colouring, glossing and glittering!), tied on with bakers twine. That’s it … CAS!
Supplies: Cardstock: Crafter’s Companion, Image: Pink Petticoat, Colours: Promarkers, Gloss: Sakura Clear Gloss Pen, Glitter: Stickles, Gems: Papermania, Twine: Stash.
Now, back to ‘more about that later’. As some of you will already know, my inspiration last week came from the state of my hair after being out in high winds on Saturday. This week, with ‘wild’ still on my mind, I was inspired again, although not by hair (well as we knew it anyway) … we were delighted by the appearance of a long eared, fluffy tailed, furry creature in the meadow, taking his time over breakfast. Mmm we mused (as you do) … this is another Wild Hare Day! So it just had to be done … in the same style as the original, but with lots of colour (yay!), here’s an alternative ‘Wild Hare Day’ card 🙂

That’s it for now … I’m going CASology browsing to enjoy some inspired creations! Thanks for your visit and especially so if you’ve had chance to make a comment … Anita
