Runway Inspired ric#26 - Bibhu Mohapatra

Yay, I'm back to card making! I don't have my own space for crafting, so all of my goodies have been packed away since before Christmas as we have overseas visitors. They are currently away for a couple of days, so I have pulled a few things out to try to get my mojo moving!

I've been pondering this challenge for a few days - such a stunning outfit, but for me very challenging colours. In the end I decided to have a lot of white space to echo the runway and then the star to hilight the colours and pattern.

I've used a Kaisercraft chipboard star and coloured it with Chipped Sapphire distress ink and then clear embossed with clear opals powder.
 Next I heated the star again and used green opals powder on part of the star and heat set this.
The sentiment is computer generated and I used the cuttlebug and my embossing board for the background.

Merry Christmas Everyone

Wishing everyone out there in blogger land a very Merry Christmas
and may all your dreams for 2013 come true! Thank you for all your inspiration and encouraging comments.

I snapped a photo of Santa in St Kilda the other day, I think he was on the way to the beach.
It is going to be 39 degrees today, so I am trying to stay cool inside, writing lists for my Christmas preparations.

Runway Inspired Challenge Ric#25

I'm just popping in to say hi!

It's been an interesting week, since I last posted.
Last Monday I was diagnosed with a chronic lung condition called Bronchiectasis,
which is disappointing because it can only be managed not cured.
 On Wednesday, my husband's Parents arrived from Scotland for a 5 weeks stay.
 On Friday I had an MRI to find out what is wrong with my foot,
because although I've already had an Xray and an Ultra-sound, 
nobody could agree on what the problem was and  they all gave different opinions.
 Anyway, the MRI result shows I have a stress fracture!

So I currently feel like hiding myself away from everyone and just recovering. 
It is lovely however to have Scott's Mum and Dad here for Christmas. 

I have managed to sneak in a little time for card making so I've made a card for the latest
Runway Inspired Challenge. Check out this amazing outfit!  I'm also entering this in the Moxie Fab 
World Keen on Neon challenge.

The bird is made with ribbon from a local discount shop and die cut using a Memory Box die. The branch is using
sparkly velour paper and also die cut. 

These are our cute puppies! My daughter dressed them up for a photo shoot.

I think Cookie needs a haircut - he looks like the Grinch!
Leo is definitely a hat man!
