What a mess!

All this mess for one card! Well I did have help, I had a friend staying here over night and as she does not have a Bug, or a George (Cricut) she wanted to play, so we made paper using Glimmer Mists and then she got to playing with George. While poor George was chuntering away, I played with some of the paper and made this ..........
I actually got to use the dinkey little dragonfly and butterfly from one of the new cartridges as well :) Not the worlds best photo perhaps, but I ran the paper through the cuttlebug, highlighted the embossing with a gold ink pad and mounted on gold card, then onto corrugated card, the insects, heat embossed with iridescent powder, were mounted using just enough foam pads to hold them on, allowing the paper to twist a bit to give them life. It is nice just to play sometimes and not to have to work to a deadline.
Speaking of which, I now need to go and collect my tote that I left in the shop on Thursday night after class, what a Numpty! I know I have several of some tools, the result of being a messy crafter, but I do rely on my tote, and until I didn't have it to hand, I didn't realise just how lost I would feel without it!
Maybe this was just a sub conscious way of making me go back to the Continental Market :)
