Two Tips

First off, my laptop has died!!!! its in with the doctor at the mo and im hoping he can revive it or at least get everything off the hard drive, ive loads of photos on it, EEEEEEKKKKKK!!!!! i'm using my boyfriends laptop for the moment.

Second off, watched a bit of Glastonbury last night and have fallen back in love with Muse. i'd forgot how good they are. i really want to see them live again,

Third off, got a part time job, woooooo, 1-2 days a week working in a shop that sells school uniforms, its only til Sept but at least its something, its in Dublin bout 2 hours from my house, so nice early starts to be in for nine. but money and something to do!

Fourth off, :) A Card for my aunt from my mam, its my aunts 50th in aug. i know its a bit early but better to have it done.

The papers i used are from the 12 x 12 honey n' hugs (Stripy one), the green flowery one is from the 12 x 12 DCWV the pocket full of posies, and the swirly stripy one is from 4.5 x 6.5 DCWV the sweet matsack (if you find this in a shop buy it, its is gorgeous). The ribbon i used was from my stash. The image is from the Bentley bears stamps that were free with Cardmaking & Papercraft. He's coloured in with promarkers,

Bentley is coloured in with Henna and i used the Blender pen to give him some lighter parts and doubled the henna for darker parts as i only have henna from the browns.
Nose: Dusty pink
Ballons: Amethyst, Poppy, Canary and Bright Orange.
Shadow: Cool Gray 1
I inked around the edge of the image with some yellow ink,

Next i printed out two tips on White velum. and added them to the card outside and inside.

I added Sister to the top corner and added yellow gems to finish it off.

I'm off to watch some Muse on Youtube now :) Enjoy the Rest of the weekend!
