MMSC #58

It is tuesday again and time for Midnight Madness!
I was lucky enough to choose my own image this week and thought that it was time for me to ink up this faboulus rose I bought a while back. It's from Impression Obsession. I embossed it in black and colored it with watercolorpencils.
It has been a while since I used a butterfly for embellishment, so it was time to find them again.

Last week I tried to lie my pants of. I am not sure about how sucsessful I was but I thought that I might straigten things out.

Here is the "Facts"

1. I am married to Marcus (nope, we live togheter but have not gotten to the marrigething yet.)

2. I have 4 cats and a dog (nope, I sure would like to, but the three cats I have don't get along very well so it has to be enough)

3. I drive a 69' Corvette Sting Ray (red!) (Oh I wish so bad that this was the true one... but it's not. I drive a mossgreen Huyndai og Hyundai og how ever they spell that thing)

4. I live in Denmark, the capital of Sweden ( Oh I sure hope no one thought this one to be true.... )

5. I have an bachelordegree in literature (Well, this is how boring I am - this is true. The only thing I have to brag about is that I have read a lot of old books - and analyzed them yeah! Let's party!)

6. I drink a lot of coffe (nope - never understood the coffething - Pepsi Max on the other hand... yeah, I drink way to much of that)

7. I love pink and baby blue (I am not going to say anything about this one, you all should know me better than THIS!)

So that was the truth about me and my life. Not a lot to brag about eh? But you still love me right? I know you do ;o)

Now run over to Midnight Madness and get your craftingjuices going! Just look at these sketches:

Hi Gunn - well you know we still love you don't you! I guessed the truth straight away - you are not good at lying - and that is a good thing! Now, I love this eclectic delight you have created! There are so many elements that draw your eye - love the music sheet and the gorgeous lace - the image is fabulous! Another great card Gunn - you are one of my favourite artist my friend! {{{hugs}}}

Gunn, you aren't a good liar, nice try though! I knew right away which was the truth..see when you pay attention it's amazing what you learn about a person! :) I still have to post mine!!! LOL
I love, love, love your card this week! You always use the music backing paper so well and your butterfly is gorgeous. Love that rose and your dark paper to really make it stand out! Totally beautiful!

Okay, Gunn, I would have never guessed about the literature degree. I was kind of banking on the Sting Ray. You seem like a Sting Ray kind of gal!! However, I am moving onto your beautiful card for this week's sketch! I zoomed in to see all the BEAUTIFUL details and I wasn't disappointed. I LOVE your art as it takes on such an original form and leaves me wanting more. Your details are priceless on this one!!

Gunn: I thought for sure the red corvette was true, someone has to have one....I love your card for MMSC58. It's great and have studied it and looked at it for a long time so I can learn something from you. Your cards and card is great. Sue

Linda Ledbetter said...

I also thought the Stingray was the fact! I can totally see you buzzing around in a hot little card. Someday, girlfriend!

Your card is stunning, by the way! Like always!

Gunn...I could have been green with envy on the Red Corvette thing you know!!! My son (17) has loved Corvette's since he as young. Two summers ago we went on a quest to test drive every Corvette we could find for sale. We had so much fun and he still talks about it. But yes, I still love you!!

Your card this week is just amazing and stylish. You always find these intriguing embellishment and this week that butterfly has my eye. Great job on coloring that beautiful rose. Love everything about this!

Bear Hugs,
Carol :O}
P.S. Thank you so much for sending the pictures yesterday. It was so interesting and beautiful to look at.
