Here's looking at you...


I'd forgotten how nerve-wracking September can be, with the retiring list and products selling out, left, right and centre! I will be placing a group order with free postage this evening - and after that it will be individual orders only, which I will place as soon as they arrive. Shipping will be £4.95 to any UK address - but if you spend £50 you can have FREE shipping! It doesn't have to be retiring products, and you can team up with a friend if necessary. 

So, to today's card... monsters and goggly eyes – was there ever a match more made in heaven? I don’t know what my son is going to say when he realises just how many of his goggly eyes I’ve used lately!

These monsters are each stamped twice – once on Whisper White and punched out using the 1 3/8” square punch and once on scraps of Woodland Walk Designer Series Paper. I thought the “bubbly” paper was particularly good for the monsters as it looks a little like scaly skin.

In keeping with the slightly unhinged nature of this card, I punched some circles out of the papers and scattered them across the background. Hurts your eyes a bit, this one!

  1. This is so fun! You are becoming quite the monster card creator!! Love the way you used DSP to give a textured look to your creatures! Guess now you'll have to go buy more googly eyes!

Thank you so much for taking the time to comment. I love receiving genuine comments - I do get bored of deleting dodgy links though!
