Cute Card Thursday ~ Patterned Paper ~ I Do Love Patterned Papers....



I have to say sorry to all of my friends who are sending e-mails but not getting any reply, i promise i will reply to you, my brother-in-law is going to do a temporary fix on my mail box tomorrow, I'm still getting and able to read mail, but I'm unable to send which is driving me nuts!!!!!!!!!!!! Me being me thought i could fix the problem and i made it worse........tut tut tut....

Just a quick update on Gizmo, Sara one of the specialists called this morning as usual and the pressure in Gizmo's eye is 26, they took the pressure just before he was due medication so they are happy with how he is doing, I'm unsure as yesterday his pressure was only 21 so we'll see tomorrow.... We are all missing him sooooooo much, i can't believe that one little dog like Gizmo can have such an impact on our home...but he does... bless him...... back to crossing fingers, arms, legs and praying..... i can't wait to see him..............but Mark and Pika seem to be hit much harder, and none of us are sleeping much.....that little boy is going to be spoilt rotten when he gets home.....

There is a challenge over at Cute Card Thursday this week, the challenge is to use patterned paper which really is not a problem as i have a ton............. i have this thing for patterned papers but the problems come when they are so pretty i don't want to use them......Anyone else have that problem? Well i decided to use one of the beautiful stamped images my friend Moni sent me, have you visited her blog yet, she has the most beautifully detailed cards and ATC's, if you are in need of some inspiration you'll definitely come away feeling inspired after a visit.....

I have to tell you i got the idea to put the ribbon through the main picture from Katharina she has some fantastic idea's for ribbons and bows on her blog you should take a look, there are also fantastic tutorials, one in particular that will make you life so much easier when cutting out stamps after attaching EZ Mount...all of this and stunning creations too.......

Here is what i came up with for the Patterned Paper Challenge i have to say i do love the colours in these papers, this is the second card I've made using them and I've been so pleased with how both of them turned out.. What do you think?

Ingredients: Making Memories Papers ~ Tilda & Flowers From Moni ~ Ribbons LSH ~ Prima Flowers ~ Brads, Flower Clip & Dog Tag From Stash ~ Quickutz Die ~ Inktense Pencils (if you don't have these you have to get some..) ~ A liberal sprinkling Of Stickles For Sparkle...

Hi Tina. Fabulous card, you colour so fabulously! Love everything you have used on your card - gorgeous colours! I have the same paper problem - I don't think there is a cure for it though!!! Glad Gizmo is doing OK.
