Well flippin heck - another posting!! LOL. I think I am coming over all organised for some strange reason. Might be the weather tee hee
Anyway this is a rather strange request - well perhaps I should let my followers be the judge of that.
This is a requested card for a girl called Bethany - she is a tattoo client of ours and knows my daughter. Her Mam requested this card and here is the strange bit. She hates cards!!!!???
No, not the Mam - Bethany!
Her Mam had some Christmas cards made and Beth commented on how she loved my cards and how pretty they all looked but she couldn't see the point in me making them as in her opinion all cards are a waste of time???
Now I wasn't sure I heard her correctly so I asked her to repeat what she had said - she said exactly the same thing. She hated cards and didn't see the point in giving cards out or receiving them as all you did with them was "put them up and then chuck them away!"
Now....not sure if its me but I find that rather odd?? Do you not??
Yes okay so we all like different things - if we didn't the world would be a very boring place. But why did her Mam ask me to make a card for her if she hates them?
I reckon it will end up in the bin in any case. So her Mam said just make it plain and simple but I had to put Bethany on as it will make Beth even more cross apparently.
Now is someone taking the pee out of me here or not?
Anyway this is the image I chose as Beth likes cats and dogs. I picked this one as I thought it was cute but I haven't add any embellishments or flowers as yet as I'm not sure whether or not to.
I know we can't dictate what happens to our cards when they are received but I am not sure if I want to put on my flowers and gems and glamour dust etc if its just going to be chucked away.
So here it is plain and simple for now as I would like your opinions first.
Should I add some flowers or gems or something else to it? Do you think its wasting my time and crafty goodies?
this is a close up of the cat - the image is a LOTV image which again was a freebie in Papercraft Inspirations magazine.
Coloured with copics. Added glossy accents to the flowers and the paper was a download from Pink Petticoat with the wording done directly onto the paper from the PC using Americana font.
thanks for looking and in this posting I would dearly love some comments as to whether or not I am wasting my time here or not.
see you all soon
