Chips Ahoy!!

I thought we could all do with a bit of humour today after a busy few weeks...so what better way to do it than those adorable Emerson gals...how could you not love them!  I was inspired by the 2RedBananas Challenge which was a sketch this week - phew!! Also the Stamp Something Challenges which is all about BLING, along with the If the Shoe Fits which is also about BLING!!  I must say at this point that I was also motivated by the fact that it dawned on me this morning as I was getting organised for the day, that I was meant to have made 10 cards for one of the boutiques that sells my card - OOPS - my bad!!

This particular one always makes me laugh - if only it was just the chocolate chips! LOL!  I guess a lot of us can relate to it in one way or another!

I really like this particular sketch, it worked well for using up those bits of DP that we collect (and have them ALL over the place) so I feel that I can justify the time spent by deluding myself  that I have cleaned my desk - but it would seem that no-one else in may house hold is fooled! LOL!

I used the Labels 1 Nestibilitie to cut out the image, coloured them with chalks and added highlights with a Glitter pen....and you know me - I sponged every edge in sight.  The layers are all backed with black CS.  I have popped the image up on dimensionals and added a layered flower to the side.  The top flower is actually foam - I wasn't sure about these at first, but I love the way they 'pop' up when a brad is used....the final touch is the Kaiser strip of gems - quick and easy - I managed to get three of these made in a couple of hours, which is pretty quick for me, usually I agonise for-ev-a!!

Thank you for stopping by and for your comments - you are so very kind!!  I love seeing that you have been AND you can be pretty sure I will be back soon as I have 7 more cards to make for Thursday as well as a few general ones....it is a hard job but somebodies got to do it!  LOL!  God bless you!
