Challenge card

Over on lots todo is the challenge to make something with a name on it and that spured me on to make a card for my friend Kat who has a birthday coming up.

Forgive me it's cute

I've been a bit under the weather lately so not done a lot of crafting and while I was under the weather I caught an extra bug ( the cute bug lol ) and I made a card with an image sent to me by my friend Lou.
I did enjoy making the flower I punch 3 for each flower and glued them together with wood glue makes them very strong and then coated them with glossy accents.
Hope I'm forgiven but it is rather nice lol

Spin art

On Tim Holtz blog he's been playing with alcohol inks and caned air and I seen some lovely cards made but when I looked at the cost of a can of air I nearly fell on the floor, so I tried it with a straw but err to much moisture I'm being polite lol. Then I remembered seeing art made in a spin drier on you tube wow that did look fun :) so I looked on Ebay for a kiddies spin art ( my son had one when he was small ) and these are some of the results .
