Hi there, I'm finally back after a fabulous weekend of scrapping. I wasn't sure how things were going to turn out having developed a pleasant case of Strep mid week last week, but I'm glad to say it didn't affect my performance or my eating habits.
I never EVER thought I would comment that one could get tired of eating........till you go on a scrapping weekend! When breakfast runs in to mid morning snack, which leads to lunch, then afternoon snack, which turns to dinner.......well you get the picture!
No complaints though as that's it for another year.
Anyhow, I'm a little later in the day than I expected with this post, but it is still Wednesday so that's pretty good in my book. It means that technically I'm not late for this weeks Little Red Wagon challenge..........
Joanne would like to see something 'Off The Edge', in other words something which extends beyond the edge of your card, layout or whatever else takes your fancy.
Now I sorta, kinda, mighta stretched the rules a little here, although technically parts of my card do extend beyond the front edge......just not the back!
I'll explain in a mo.
Now don't get me wrong I have nothing against extended parts (and now that I've typed that it sounds like something from a classic Brit Com........saucy!),but I find that if there are elements poking off the edges, it's not very 'mail' friendly. Most of my cards have to be mailed......kinda the cheapest route when there's a 3000 mile distance involved, so in order to accommodate these extended parts (!) it forces me to create a weird sized envelope OR a weird sized card to fit in a regular envelope!
Are you following here?
So you can probably guess that I'm all for taking the easy route......one which involves trimming a 1" strip from the front of a very ordinary square card, and extending anything that needs to, within that space.
Good......everybody's happy, so long as Joanne doesn't call me on it!!
I stuck a quick sentiment inside.......
and before I forget I should mention that the layout for this one was inspired by Deconstructed Sketch #128.
Colouring is courtesy of my Prisma pencils and OCMS this week, and you'll have to use your imagination cause there's a nice touch of sparkle in the fur trim on her coat. Unfortunately the camera didn't quite catch that.
Papers are from Bo Bunny's 'Snowfall' collection (last year!) and the Digi is the cute Gillian from Prairie Fairy.
Maybe you could create your own genuine 'Off The Edge' creation and link up over on the blog.
Don't forget to check out the other perfectly legal creations from the rest of the Girlfriends whilst your there!
That's it for today but I'll be back again this week with some more crafting.
Enjoy your day,
