Emergency! :-)

Hi everyone.  How is your week going so far?  Gosh, is tomorrow already Friday?  I think I blinked and the week disappeared.

Yesterday, I made sometime to just play around in the craft room.  Nikky, at Polkadoodles has a new release called Work and Play Collection 1.  Shhh don't tell anyone I told you, but there is also part 2 due to be released shortly :-)

** Work & Play Collection 1

These images are so fun, you get the black and white, and the coloured digis, and there are fabulous sentiments and papers to go along with them.

I decided to use the Fire-lady :-)  For my card.  She has been coloured with Prisma pencils, her face looks a little dirty, but hey she's coming to the rescue.

I cut her out using my Silhouette Cameo.  She is layered with a frame to make her stand out from the background.  (I have to admit these papers are from the next collection that is coming out.  Sorry, I had made the card before realising it was on the new stuff!)

I inked all the edges of all the layers with Tim Holtz Tea Dye Distress Ink.  Nothing fancy to the card, but I do like how it turned out.

For the inside, I just used some of the paper from the front, and also inked the edges.

Hope you have a fabulous Thursday.
