Some sad news - I have come to the end of my term with the Lollipop Ladies and have only this one last post for them. However, you know that saying about doors - one closes and another opens? Well, there is one open door (more about that later - I am very excited about it) and one partly open door in front of me and I have some thinking to do........those of you who know me will know that is not my forte! However, picture me hunkered down - thinking!
On with the post ....................the theme for the Lollipop Ladies this fortnight is
Guest DT spots are able to be won each fortnight
Now, I haven't seen too many of these around although I had a retirement cake made for me when I retired by my friends - it was a blackboard and chalk shaped cake
I used SU card and DP and some bling and a charm. The ink is also SU Pool Party. The black card is a commercial blank. The edges of the Whisper White and the other colours - Pool Party and Pacific Blue are roughed up. I used the big background stamp SU Wonderfully Worn and put the card on top of the stamp after I inked it, and used the roller to press the card into the ink but the card shifted - oh no! However, I liked the effect so used it anyway!
The sentiment is from LOTV Set 64.
The little charm is attached with a yellow thingy and red paper twine. The flags are from scarps of SU Poppy Parade and so DP that came with the SU This and That book.
I added the bling to balance the red.
I will enter this in the following challenges:
Crafty Girls Challenge: Anything Goes
Crafting by Design: Anything Goes with Smeared Ink - I smeared my background when I was inking it!
