Close your eyes

I really love this image and have used it a couple of times now. It's just so sweet.  I'm really loving this shaped card at the moment.  I bought some larger card blanks, and I can use a larger nestie to cut my fancy base shapes which means that I can even more space to fit embellies onto my cards!!!  I used inks to give the image panel and the backing papers a distressed look around their edges. It seems to make the panels stand out more too, and I'm really liking this look at the moment.

Sorry that the picture is a bit dark today. I managed to break my lovely crafting lamp (the one which has my expensive 'daylight bulb' in it).  It fell off my craft desk onto my head when I was bending down to pick up the waste bin while I was hoovering the carpet. Both the bulb and the lamp broke, glass going everywhere.  Luckily of course I had the hoover out already to clear up the mess, but I have a rather painful bump on my head.  Ouch!!!  Plus, I now need a new bulb, and a new lamp to go with it.  D'oh!!!
