Gnome wedding

CR00477 square

I nearly didn’t make this card. I’m really not a fan of gnomes — I’ve only ever made one other card with gnomes on it and that was done with a particular person in mind — and I didn’t want to make a card I am unlikely to use (my card stash is big enough as it is). But I’ve been doing the Gerda Steiner progressive challenge for quite a while now and it seems a shame to just drop out. So I fished around for inspiration and decided to make an easel wedding card.

Cat on a bookshelf

CR00476 square

Because I spent March mostly working on mixed media pieces, I didn’t get around to making this until almost the last day of the month. And then my craft desk was still an absolute mess so I couldn’t take the photos to go with the blog post and I ended up putting a quick photo over on Instagram and linking that up to the challenge instead.

Love you sew much bunny

CR00462 square

The obvious thing would have been to make a Valentine card with this bunny and its big heart, but it didn’t really feel like the sort of image I’d use for a card for my other half (see this year’s Deadpool Valentine).

Why do I always leave making cards for challenges until the end of the month? It’s not making the cards that’s the problem, it’s not even getting the photographs done — I’ve got that workflow sorted — it’s writing up the blog post to go with them. Actually, it’s more the “thinking about writing the blog post” that slows me down. I don’t know why, but it’s just one of those things that I procrastinate horribly about, even though it doesn’t actually take long to do when I finally put fingers to keyboard.

Hello tortoise!

CR00410 square

I don’t care if the digi stamp is called “hello friend turtle”, it has feet not flippers so it must be land-dwelling, therefore it’s a tortoise (checks… okay, technically all tortoises are turtles but still…). Now I’ve got that out of my system, on to the card 🙂

It’s been a while since I took part in Gerda’s progressive challenge — I missed out on adding my entry for the November challenge and, what with one thing and another, I hadn’t got around to rejoining — but I’m still on the mailing list and when I saw this month’s image, I thought I’d pick it up in the store and start up again.
