You Complete Me

Hello. I hope you're having a good week. Mine's been very productive. Yesterday I pulled out the shoes and sandals that I had stored in boxes in the bottom of one of my wardrobes. I tried them all on and put them in three rows - one to keep, one to take to the charity shop and one undecided/ask Hubby for a second opinion. On counting them I was shocked to discover that there were 35 pairs! When he came in from work and went upstairs I heard "Where the **** did all these shoes come from?".  He quickly decided that all of my undecided ones should go, so I now I have 10 pairs on the keep pile. Oops! I do have a lot more room in my wardrobe though. Next job is the clothes hanging in it and I will be just as ruthless.

I've had a day off from that today and have had a lovely time watching Barbara's shows on Hochanda. I especially enjoyed the last hour as it was fab to see Barbara on with Leonie again.

Here's the first of the two cards I made for today's shows. I do love a bit of cheese and sometimes it creeps into my card making.


Sorry but I just couldn't help myself!  :) 

I started off by stamping the text in the boxes............


......then I brushed on some Distress Ink to take away the whiteness. I liked how this was defining the pieces so I finished off the edges with Walnut Stain .


I masked off the letterboxes then added the hearts using a stencil and Fired Brick Distress Ink.


It still needed something so I added a bit of sparkle to some of the hearts.


I hadn't left myself much room to stamp the sentiment so I had to type the word "complete" on my computer and print it out. I then used the Letterbox set to stamp the rest of it above and below.

I added a few Walnut Stain stencilled hearts and I separated the "YOU" and stuck it on with Pinflair gel to finish it off.

Products Used
Hearts stencil from the Basic Backgrounds Set

Thanks for visiting. I'll be back soon with my second card from today.
