I have made this card for this weeks Try A New Technique challenge at Splitcoaststampers. the technique is to tear up little scraps of paper, glue them onto some cardstock, overlapping in places, stamp and emboss on it, then cut it into sections and add it to your project. It kinda reminds me of old fashioned quilts!! I have used the GERANIUM digi image from Hambo Stamps and colored it in with promarkers then matted and layered everything on a scrap piece of corrugated card that has had the gesso treatment.

Keeping it in!!!

I have made another card for the Naughty or Nice challenge , still on the love theme,  I have used the adorably embarrassed OUTHOUSE PIG rubber stamp from Hambo Stamps It brings back memories of when I was a young girl and we didn't have an inside bathroom, I dont think many people did back then!! my Dad used to fetch the tin bath from outside every Sunday evening for our weekly bath, me first, then my Mum, then my poor old Dad, bless him!!   anyway, so the toilet was way down at the bottom of the yard, through the sludge, past all the rats.... yes this is true!!! then finally in the dark damp toilet with its eary lagging around the pipes!!!  I tell you I couldn't do my business quick enough!!!   Ohhhh the luxury of inside bathrooms!! he he.

Ooooooohhh Naughty!!!

Yippeeeeee, two things to celebrate, firstly,  I have been invited to stay on the DT with Hambo Stamps, well!!!... how could I refuse!! and ...(which ties in nicely).. there is a new blog site called Naughty or Nice, a new site where there is a once a month challenge to make a card that is nice, or.....naughty!!!, cards that are a bit risque!! well, guess which on appeals to me!! lol. So, for my first card for this challenge...yes there will be more to come!! I have used the BEAVER digi image from guess who!!.. the queen of double entendre....yes..Hambo Stamps!! The sentiment is computer generated. I actually have other ideas for cards that are more rude than this but I will wait to see how the land lies on that one for a while, at the moment all the entries for this challenge fall in the "nice" section, so I guess I am gonna have to get the ball rolling...
