Purrrrrfect Scruffy.....

My apologies if this reads wrong.. I've added to it...it was scheduled for tonight anyway... Well I'm still poorly.... only now I've nearly lost my voice...my throat is so sore i can't hardly talk.. my darling hubby Mark keeps laughing at me and then saying awwwwww.... and mwah...he won't kiss me because he says he doesn't want my lurgy....so I'm getting childish kisses on the forehead for the foreseeable future..aww can't blame him really...I'm really sorry I've not been by for a few days... I'm still feeling pretty rough...thankfully I'd already created this post last Saturday.. scheduling is a godsend.. On to my little card for today.. i say little, but i wish i could show you just how big Scruffy is... imagine the size of the largest SU stamp and half again..you can see I've trimmed him and this is a six by six card.. he's huge.. and i love him.... i don't know why but I've made six cards including this one and this is the first I've shown...There is a fantastic sketch over at Friday Sketchers by the lovely and very talented Jacqueline.. i hope that you will all take the time to go and see the creations of the design team they are all amazing artists..and offer inspiration in bucket loads..For this card I took a piece of SU Bashful Blue CS and scored it using my Scorepal then trimmed it down to a six by six inch card.. i distressed all the edges and took some more CS in Real Red by SU and created the six triangular panels distressed them and laid a piece of Making Memories 5th Avenue DP that had been distressed over the top of each triangle and then stitched each panel using my Janome Mini Sewing Machine.. For the front of the card i then used two of the panels and attached them to the card on top of which i then attached a distressed rectangular panel of Su Real Red CS that had another piece of the same MM 5th Avenue DP distressed and stitched to it... finally attaching my gorgeous Scruffy image to the front.. Scruffy was coloured using my Zig Brushables.. (I'm a bit embarrassed I've had these nearly six months.. Mark got me the whole set way back in the summer when i was ill and this is only the first or second time I've used them.....naughty..) I don't know if you can see but Scruffy has slippers on.. these come as one slipper and you stamp it twice.. cute ayy... To finish the front i attached these beautiful flowers my dear friend Claudia sent to me last summer they are so yummy and i think I've probably said this a million times.. she always sends me the most yummy embellishments...Please take a look at Claudia's Blog she has an amazing new Tutorial on colouring with Copic Markers.. On the back of the flowers i attached two pieces of velvet powder blue ribbon BG if i remember correctly, to act as foliage..and finished the flowers off by using an Around The Block Pussy Cat Brad in the center of each of them.. i then attached a sentiment that was first attached to a distressed piece of SU Real Red CS.. The inside is pretty much made up following the sketch apart from the panels for writing on..i used some fish brads by Around The Block to attached some yummy ribbon to a paper clip then attached all of it to one of the rectangular panels.. The back is made up of two pieces of SU Real Red CS and one piece of MM 5th Avenue CS stitched together then the same ribbon, brad and paper clip embellishment attached to the panel before attaching it to the card.. there you go all done... i added a picture to show the panels on the front of the card as my image panel turned out huge because of Scruffy..hehehe...
I also created this little bag, as i was giving this card to my friend last Monday for her birthday.. Liz loved them both and even more the bottle of DKNY Red Delicious inside the little gift bag...hehehe..
I really am sorry I've not been around visiting.. I'm sleeping a lot when I'm not coughing...yuck.. Hopefully tomorrow is a new day and some of this nasty yucky coughy thing will be gone.. it's had it if it isn't, I'm off to the doctors tomorrow night...Antibiotics will knock it on the head...
Night Night Sleep Tight.. Don't Let The Bed Bugs Bite.....LOL
