Been stressing a lot lately and it's been difficult to get on the computer for any length of time as that area is finally getting renovated and so the bits of equipment are constantly being moved and the modem, etc is unplugged a lot too :( My reaction has been to découpage fanatically: I now have a whole box of découpaged pieces waiting to be mounted on to cards! Finally finished one this morning so I thought I'd share it and hopefully give you a laugh too:
Front:Inside:Don't you think the toad got away lightly?! For me, it just had to be a Mother's Day card, which is 25th May 2008 here in France.
The backing pieces and small flowers have been salvaged from another card which is why it fits the Daring Cardmakers Challenge to recycle cards, etc. I rearranged the pieces with the decoupage hiding some old marks, coloured and added the peel-off sentiment and finally added the gem. The green backing paper used inside is from Funky Fairy's 'Cool Co-ordinates' and you'll see I gusseted the card to allow for the decoupage. The decoupage is from a new French magazine: Passion Cartes Creative.
