Read All about it!

There is no denying that the media is all around us. this week our dare was set by the lovely Gillian. She dared us to use the Media in our cards - either through as inspired designs or even using real magazines and newspapers in our work. The other girls over on Daring Card Makers have come up with some stunning ideas so pop on over and have a look.

I am afraid my card this week was made in a bit of a hurry and I have been a bit under the weather with earache.

Bundle Of Joy

As seems to be usual lately I started with a square plain white card blank. I found a mothercare catalogue and found a picture of a baby (I loved this one, and gave other half a heart attack in the process wondering why mothercare catalogues were in the house again!) I mounted the picture onto a piece of blue textured card from a DCWV All Occasion Stack and then onto a yummy piece of Blue Baby Bottle Glitter Card. Its lovely stuff but a pain in the bum to stick! I gave up with the glue eventually and stuck it all together with a few small square brads

Using the same brads and backing cards I used a black papermania new baby rub ons to add the sentiment and attached it under the picture. Then to finish off I attached a lovely piece of sheer ribbon with Baby on it, from my local craft shop. Quick, simple and hopefully effective!

I promise promise promise to blog a little more regularly than once a week - if i havent done so by about monday evening you have permission to shout at me! xxx

This is one of my favourites this week - love the picture of the baby! And the colours and tone of the card all go so well with the endearing picture. It's a great card!
