My Cockles are Warm!

TT0810 Oh yes people ... someone well and truly went and made my day ... They did in fact warm the cockles of my heart!

They don't have a blog ... so I can't add a link ... but one of the comments from yesterday's post read ... and I quote "the card is great-love your narrations-I feel like we are sitting there having tea (coffee for me please). Thank you for sharing yourself with all us." Now when I set this blog up ... several years ago now ... July 2007 ... I think ... I called it a Crafting Journey and added the strap line ... with coffee breaks along the way! Linda ... that was who left the comment ... no ... it was n't me ... ratified that I have finally achieved what I set out to achieve ... and I am dead chuffed ... so Linda ... wherever you are ... THANK YOU!

Now ... today's card is take two of my entry to Theme Thursday ... if you popped by yesterday ... you will have acknowledged my self professed Numpty status when I made a card for the previous weeks challenge ... der!!!TT10810

So I have checked and double checked and the Theme this week is definitely red and black ... and my card definitely qualifies ... phew!

The background was made using Dylusion's Pomegranate spray ink ... Yummy ... and Lord Tim of Holtz's Bitty Grunge stamp set ... you know Tim ... the man that could visit 6 Primary school assemblies ... all on the same day and all at the same time with just a miniscule amount of Black Enamel Accents and the packaging from a set of foundations!

The characters are indeed Stampotique and rather than start that whole cute but not debate ... I need to tell you that one of them is supposed to look like a girl ... they don't do a little short girl so I thought a ribbon bandana and a bead necklace would do the trick! I know the beads look a bit like a beard in the picture ... but trust me ... in real life ... it ...erm ... really ... erm ... does n't!

C'mon you guys ... what craftiness are you planning on this weekend? Tell us ... you know how I like to know these things!

Laters!

Totally love your description of the prowess of our Lord Tim! Indeed! As for today's wonderful card, I think she definitely looks like a "she" or then again maybe (s)he just likes to dress up! I'm going to spend the weekend gearing up for fall workshops and stuff - all fun, fun, fun! ~chris

I'm so glad, nobody wants cold cockles ;-)
Wonderful card, great colour and yes it does look like a little girl - very clever. It's so easy when you start doing something for a challenge to get a little carried away on your journey and forget about the actual theme.
