The Troubled Wedding!

It is time for a new challenge over at Creative Moments!!! Challenge #101 has the optional twist of Weddings or Anniversaries (although you can always play Anything Goes). There are three lovely sponsors for this challenge: Lacy Sunshine; My Stitch Back in Twine who are both offerring 3 images to the winner and QKR stampede who are offerring the winner 5 images from their digi collection.

I have used Made in Heaven from QKR stampede:
Sorry about the pixalation. I am not sure what happened - the plain image is fine, but as soon as I added the watermark, it becomes pixalated!!! GRRRR. I decided to make something that can be viewed all year long - so I went for a fridge magnet. After all these are the srts of sentiments you do usually see clinging to peoples fridges as a bit of a giggle. So I printed the sentiment and cut it out using X-cut large labels nesting die (second smallest). I then cut a backing from pink card using the next die up. I printed two lovebugs from 2-cute ink and coloured them with promarkers - Cool Grey 5, Mustard, Pale Pink and Limited Edition Wild Cranberry, but then went over the wings of one of the bees using Azure, to make it obviously masculine. These were die-cut with a Nellie's nesting die and mounted on beading wire, so they bounce when the fridge door is opened.

I would like to enter this creation into the following challenges:
PFP 361 Make us smile

 And yet another different moth
Small skipper again.

Check the next post for the OZ showcase creation (as seen on the Creative Moments blog), and some more woolly wonders lol.

 Finally for this post I have an audiobook review for you all:

The troubled man by Henning Mankell
When the father of soon-to-be son-in-law of Detective Kurt Wallander goes missing, Wallander decides to take some time off work to look into it. This story is set in Sweden and he has to go back through past events to try and work out what is going on in the present. It becomes more important when the mother also goes missing, only to turn up dead. Furthermore, Wallander is having problems with his memory, which are causing his own family, and work colleagues, to worry. I really enjoyed this book, although I have never heard of this author before. Well written and well read, with lots of surprises for the listener.

I liked this book so much I have gone and got another 2 by this author out of the library!

Thank you for looking,

Hugz Tinz
