Been Busy...

Hey peepz, I have not been uploading cards or taking part in challenges as most of my cats are not well. The weather is changing and it always affects them.
I manage to “complete” one card today. I have been working on it since my last post, but I was not getting the time to finish it.
Anyhow, it’s really a simple card. No flowery stuff from me this time lol
I have cut strips of paper and coloured them with a colour pencil. Glittered the odd ones with transparent glitter.
I have always loved the buckle thingy or whatever you talented ladies call it. So I took a piece of paper and made two cuts with the help of a blade/knife, inserted the ribbon in one and out from the other.

The design on the circle is drawn by me. And then coloured with two three shades of brown, same background colour and slightly glittered.
I did not paste the entire circle, just a glue dot at the center and lifted it up a bit.
See simple! :)

Great job with that hand drawn flower and glittering the panels.

I have been thinking about sending you a few die cuts. Do you think it will be ok? If so reply to this comment and send me your address.

Take care.

Perfection!!! That is the only word for it. Your hand drawn flower should be a stamp. It's quite simply glorious! (Wiping drool away from my chin now.) :O) I love the glitteriness and the panels and the colours and the distressing on the white part around the flowers and the buckle sentiment. WOW! (Can you tell I love this card?) :o)
