Warning! This post might damage your health!!!

Okay, so these are two of the cards I made for the Creative Cardmaking article. The brief was making toppers by pyramaging stamped images. I'll start with the vaguely presentable one and then get on to Tilda with a headache (I have no words)!

I do really love these stamps, they don't get used nearly enough. They are from the Creative Expressions 'Rambling Rose' stamp sheet. I've coloured the image with copics, and boy did it take me an age! The sentiment is from LOTV.

I'm sharing the next card with you in the spirit of friendship, knowing that you would share your disasters with me. (Hmmmm). I spent sooooo long stamping, masking and coloring the image that by the time I chopped Tilda's head in two I hadn't the energy or time to start again. So the card remained as it was for all the world to see. It is truly terrible and it is no wonder I nearly choked to death on my tea!!!!

Now, hasn't that cheered you up today? I'm entitling it, 'Tilda with a headache'. Genius. Those Magnolia people will be begging me to join the team after seeing this! Hehehe.

Super big hugs, have a great weekend and thank you so much for stopping by. Jayne xx

Your roses card is fantabulous hun, I can see why it took ages, the colourwork on petals is amazing. And then there is Tilda .... when you first told me of your "accident" I thought you were exaggerating, but you really did cut her head in half, lol!! Sorry, but that is just too funny my friend. Still, she does look too much of a mutant really (wink). And I am still your friend. Hugs Sxx

Oh Jayne, you have made me chuckle today!
I love both cards - yes even the Tilda one. It's such a lovely image and coloured so beautifully and I think you were brave to do something different with it.

Both beautiful, Jayne - even the Tilda with a headache one. Eric would say that you might have improved her - he hates her with a vengeance. Calls her Hippoface. Hazel x

Oh, Jayne, I laughed my head off!! With you, of course, not at you! It's quite priceless and a very honest mistake. So sad when you took all that time! Thanks for being so real and honest here.

Don't be so self critical Jayne! They are fab cards - especially that rose! Although I must admit I did have a giggle at Tilda's sliced face!
