SS Card for October

Afternoon all,

I have finally spent some time carding!

Here is my SS card to go in the mail tomorrow. All is cool. The lady it is going to does not know I have a blog, so I am safe to post! Of course, she is going to work it out like straight away anyway...because of the postmark!

The challenges this month were:
1. Cute animals...check.
2. DL size card....check. and
3. Pastel colouring...check.

I have stamped the good old standby Hedgies by Penny Black in StazOn Black and coloured with Prisma Pencils and Odourless Mineral Solvent. (I noticed when I was uploading that I didn't colour the flowers, so will do that in
a jiffy.) I tied some gorgeous pale teal ribbon and tied a bow.

I distressed the image layer and mounted onto the pink Cuttlebugged layer with black DSFT. I LOVE black. It is so much better than white foam tape, as it is less noticeable underneath! Go figure.

I popped all that on a distressed mauve layer and attached to the very pretty pale teal base.

Ok...another commitment out of the way! I found some card perfect for the calendar swap, so I can get those printed out ready to work on to....only, it is so nice and cool in this room with the aircon on, that I really don't want to leave it!
