Burning the midnight oil

Well I'm feeling a little blurry eyed this morning. I felt the need to do a little crafty before going to bed and then when I finally got to bed I spent most of the time coughing. Never mind I've got a couple of cards to show for it so that's OK.

The cards are not my usual type of thing. I don't go much for diecuts and peeloffs as I always feel I've cheated if I haven't actually produced the main body of the card either by stamping or cutting, but heyho I did enjoy making these two quickies and they haven't turned out too bad.

I had a Laura Ashley Decoupage pack that had slipped into my basket at the Range a while ago, as they do. The pack includes diecut decoupage and some plain backing papers. I used some card from a Crafters Companion pack as the base card and scored it using the CC Ultimate Pro. I layered the decoupage onto a couple of Nesties made from some CC pearl card. I used the plain backing paper onto the back of the card and cut some borders using the Xcut border cutting system. I added ribbon and brad from stash & the sentiment from Craftwork cards(they are so usful). Actually having written this down I realise I did contribute a bit of effort into this.

This card is made using Daisy & Dandelion peeloff stickers that jumped into my basket the same time as the Laura Ashley. The base card is Bazzill bling (I do love this card). I made a nestie layer using satin silver card from another of CC's packs. I stuck one of the images onto some pearl card from my ever growing bit box and layered it onto the nestie. I added two peeloff ribbons from the pack to the side and another peeloff cake accent. The sentiment is yes you've got it a peel off from the pack. The brad i think is a Dovecraft and a couple of gems from stash.

I'm reasonably happy with the results and hope you like them
Have a good Sunday and let's hope the weather is kind to us 'cause I've got to cut the lawn, if I can find the energy.
Love, Pat xx
