New Job Card

I'm like a bus with my blogging - I do nothing for ages, then you get 2 posts in 1 day!

You know, sometimes I'm just too gullible - hubby woke me this morning with a cup-o-tea and said "we had a bit of snow last night"  "did we?!" says me surprised, "yep" says he.  "It's gone though hasn't it because its sunny now?" I asks, "No, it was -3 last night so it's still there" he says with a straight face.  So what do I do? Let my curiosity get the better of me, pull back the curtains to see not a spec of snow in sight and hubs is rolling on the bed "April Fools!" finding it all

I had a play this week with the Big Fella Mix Alphas by Pink Petticoat and they are so versatile!  The set is humungous in 52 different colours, as well as plain coloured sheets too and as they are a digital they take up nil room in your craft space - win win situation.

I printed in chocolate, crimson and bluebell and mixed up the alpha styles.  I cut each letter out in a different fashion and on a mix of linen, smooth and pearlescent card.  I stuck some letters onto heart and script paper, from Just An Oldfashioned Girl Collection from Pink Petticoat, finishing with crystal and black/grey pearl self-adhesive stones and white stitched grosgrain ribbon from stash.  Oh yes, nearly forgot, I used Anna Griffin ink to age the mat layering card then sponged it to soften the effect. 

See what you think.....

Beautiful stitched grosgrain ribbon

A good shot of different alpha styles in this set - yes those are 'dotty' alphas!
Lovely script background paper too.
