Forgotten Friday 16

Well it is time for Forgotten Friday again on Judith's blog although now it is Saturday.  Blogger was 'down' yesterday so wasn't able to post this card until this morning.  I was reminded when I saw Judith's card last week that I too had bought a box of Scrabble  style tiles a good few years ago and hadn't actually used many of them so dug them out of retirement to add words to this card.  In doing so I discovered there are many more Qs and Js etc in this set than there are in the real game tiles so not really sure what will happen to those but maybe I can paint over them and stamp something but it would probably be easier to bin them!!  I was asked for a Get Well card in the week and realised that all I had were a couple of 'feminine' style ones so decided to do this one which might be more male orientated.

The image is a digtal one but I'm afraid I can't recall where it was from because I usually print out a whole page of images to make best use of the card or paper and keep the spares in a box so this 'ruff' looking dog has also been lying neglected.  Background papers are from my stash, the words at the top were printed from the computer and I added a Marrianne die cut corner.

Coredinations Card

I've used Core-dinations card and a sanding block here - this was a pad  called Chocolate Box which has various shades of brown all with different colour cores.  The background paper is from K & Co and has matched well with the Core-dinations.  The wording was achieved using a Sizzix small embossing folder sanded to show the core colour and this in turn has been layered onto a Spellbinders ornate label cut from the same card and then onto a Nestabilities shape which had some tiny swirls stamped around the edge and was sponged with some brown ink.  A piece of ribbon , a flower and a little Spellbinders buckle complete this card.

Tatty Teddy

Docrafts have just brought out a range of Papermania Tatty Teddy items which are quite appealing.  For my 'I-spy friend' (you know who you are) I didn't actually buy this stamp because it was free along with a small embossing folder on the front of their Creativity magazine.  He has been coloured with Copic pens and the image was cut out with a Nestabilities die.  Background paper is from the Pampered Pets range and the sentiment was a stamp from the freebie set.  Some natural coloured ribbon was coloured using the same Copic pen as I used on Teddy's nose and a Sizzix square lattice embossing folder (Stampin Up) was used on one of the layers.
