Good afternoon peeps.
The sun is shining and the wind has dropped so it feels a lot milder than the last couple of days.
Hope the 'weather bomb' hasn't wreaked too much havoc where you are. Not sure where that term came from, just looked like an intense Atlantic low to me on the weather map, newspapers looking for a headline probably.
It's time for the vote for the new DT member over at MUSE as well as a new challenge. I was saddened to hear that there may have been some dodgy voting over the last few weeks. One of the best things about Muse is that its the followers that vote for the best card designs and it relies on the integrity of us all to follow the rules and not distort the vote. I hope it has been sorted as I really believe in the challenge and it would be sad to see it spoilt.
On another sad note, the reason why they are having a DT call is that Therese is leaving and this is her last MUSE inspiration, so I had to find a way to take part. So enough blather, here it is -
and here is Therese's card
I love the comedic aspect of this card, but I haven't got a stamp remotely like this so I went with a Christmas theme, keeping to the colour scheme and using a Polaroid die cut to make the shaker.
I'd not used this die before, its from Kaisercraft, and the sides are a little thin to use as a shaker so I had to cut the tape very thinly !
I was going to put the doggy inside the shaker, but I decided to put a little bit of scenery in the background as the space looked too empty and the doggy on the outside. He is part of a set from LOTV which I coloured with Copics. I filled the shaker with some snowflakes, sequins and beads before mounting on a white base card that I embossed using my Cuttlebug snow folder. The clouds sort of balanced the design, I used a Joy die to cut them and glued them over the corner.
OK, that's about it, thanks for taking the time to read my ramblings.
