Bugger Blogger

Well lets see how this goes.... I am posting in new blogger.  I hate change and was quite happy with the old interface until I was discovered that my photo's could be larger with new blogger, so I'm giving it a go.  Although I doubt if I'll get to the end of the post without a few expletives escaping.


Here is a card I made this morning for the latest LIM challenge - sketch 


 


and also CAS-ual Friday's challenge which is flowers and/or trees ( I hope topiary trees count)


Note big photo!





I was given this stamp recently by a neighbour who acquired it at a boot fair in a job lot I think, and thought it would look best paper pieced.  It took me longer trying to find colours that I thought toned well with each other, (all oddments from my stash) than actually putting the card together.  I deliberately omitted the sentiment as I think the card looks better without one.

I'm on the night shift again tonight so going to get my head down now for a few more Zzzz's hopefully.

Oh, and in case you're wondering, two 'bugger's and a 'shit'

Thanks for looking and have a splendid weekend.

  2. LOL! I'm with you on the new Blogger thing. It's taking some getting used to but I find that a sprinkling of naughty words definitely help with the learning curve. ;)

    As for your card - love the paper piecing and the colour choices! A great multi-occasion card to have on hand.

  3. Ha ha you did well with just two buggers and a sh*t!! I did more thatn that.
    I also noticed the larger photo option, as a s I am sh*t with a camera, that was the only + I could find.
    Your card is gorgeous, that image is just fab, would use that in lots of ways, Home card and I bet it cold be adapted for Christmas too.
    Good Find.

  12. Haha, swear as much as you like, Fiona! Coming from a Sweary Mary like me, that's no surprise, is it?
    The bigger photo is worth the change and the two buggers and a shit, your beautiful card can be seen clearly in all its glory. Love the topiary trees!
    Hope your night shift goes OK. xxxxx

  14. Well I just started on Blogger, so it wasn't that big of a change for me, I was still learning! Love how you paper pieced the scene from your stamp. I need to keep that in mind for some of my more involved stamps that I don't feel like coloring. Well done!
