MDUC – Pink, Lace & Metal

MDUC – Pink, Lace & Metal

Hello everyone!

I’ve been a little slack with my posting of late. I am just going through a really really tired phase. I don’t’ seem to be sleeping well and I am walking around like a zombie all day. I think I need to make a New Years resolution after all and start EXERCISING! I think that’s my problem and now I just need to get motivated. haha  But seriously – it’s about time I get off my buttocks and move a little and get the energy levels higher. (a little pep talk to myself)

BUT I do have a card to share. I actually made this card last week for the last MDUC challenge and I was naughty and didn’t get around to blogging it. The girls gave me the thumbs up for this weeks challenge and I just scraped through with my ‘metal’ zip! hehee Bonus!! 😀

I am a little bit proud of this card. You know how I have been doing the clean and simple – well I decided to go for an ‘Alyce’ style card with the muted brown colours and pretty flowers etc… oh and of course the ‘pearl’ border around the image. 🙂 I am happy with the result and plan to play more. 🙂 Alyce tells me it’s all about practise, just like with colouring and after a while you start picturing what your card will look like and what accessories you will grab from your stash as you’re colouring the iamge! 🙂 I’ll let you know how that goes. haha!

OK so here’s my card

    A very beautiful card Zoe, very beautiful indeed. I know exactly how you´re feeling right now, as I´m the exact same here. I haven´t got even one card made since christmas, and that´s the first time ever, I think, but I´m just sooo darned tired, and can´t seem to pull myself up either. But I really need to get in gear and get some worrk done, as I have so much waiting to get done, so better get my fingers out, and get going LOL.
    Have a wonderful week ahead everyone and lots of crafty fun.

    Hi Zoe! Your card is beautiful! I love the “zip” idea. Now I need to find some zippers. And your coloring is beautiful, as always!
