Some jewellery and the card from hell...

I had one of "those" days yesterday while trying to make a card - I had an image in my head of how it was going to look, unfortunately that all went wrong when I tried to stamp a flourish on the background of my card. It was also meant to stamp onto some of the image, of course, it didn't work and I was left trying to cover up my botched attempt. I spent so long trying to cover up the botch that it would have been easier just to re-stamp and colour the image again! I ended up going to bed in a huff and going back to it again this morning - thankfully it looks ok and no sign of my rubbish stamping!
I am entering this card into the Passion for ProMarkers and Cupcake Crafts challenges. Passion for ProMarkers this week is "Girls, Girls, Girls" which immediately makes me think of Motley Crue - not sure that's what they were going for! The challenge at Cupcake Crafts this week is a sketch:

So here is the card...

I have recently got back into jewellery making - something I used to do years ago but fell out of love with. There are so many beautiful beads and bits around now though that I thought I'd dip my toe in the water once more. Below are some makes - none original I must add, but they've got me back into it nicely!

A charm pendant - it hangs quite low - kind of cleavage length!

This bracelet has wrapped loops on - my first attempt...

My first bracelet - a nice easy one to get started!

This one turned out to be not quite as easy as it looked as I had to twist the cord a bit to stop all of the charms from sliding together...

That's it for tonight - I'm going to attempt to take part in the Greeting Farm CHA Relay contest so hopefully I will be back with another card tomorrow.
