The royal He
I'm still on my CAS run this time I used this style for a Mo's card. When I saw the cute The Royal He I knew I had to have him so love Mo's babies.
This actually started as the Sketch and Stash sketch but as you can see I went right off track with the added spotty banner.
The hearts are Memory box I did try them as dotty ones but it didn't look right. My biggest problem I had run out of fun flock, I had the pot of the fun flock and flower soft mix which I have already mixed and ready to use. But I was sure I had some fun flock on its own to make the ermine on the cloak.
So I had to put my mixture on it so I got fluffy bit rather than a smooth finished and yes since making this card I've found not one but two jars of fun flock.
The sentiment is Stampin Up Petite pairs which was lined up with the stampin me jig.
The saga of the burst pipe continue through the day has a hole appeared about two foot wide but about 4ft in depth, deep enough for a small child to fall in. And water attracts them like a moth to a flame.
So I rang 3 times, my neighbour rang the same, several other people rang including the Councillor for the area. I spent most of the day answering the door and asking children its probably best not to play with it. I was exhausted.
At 1am they arrived to fix it, 3.30am 24 hrs they started to fix it. Now I have an even larger hole with proper barriers round it and it should be filled by the end of Monday. And no I didn't get a good night sleep but I will tonight.
