Late at Night Cards...

My best creating is done near midnight...all of my neighbours must think I am crazy. Ours is the last house on our court with lights on all the time. I even had one neighbour ask me if one of the kids was afraid of the dark - he saw our light on really late all the time!

Here are two cards made late at night this week...

My first late night idea was to make a tic tac toe game using some of the cute critters from A muse. I was going to draw in the lines, but then decided to sew them on... and I wanted the snail to win...he's cuter! I figured this would make a great congratulations card for someone, so added the sentiment. I originally thought this could be a one layer card, but I had to pop up the sentiment for it to work. I think that takes it out of the running for a OLC...

Stamps: A muse (snail, song bird, congratulations SD)
Ink: Palette Hybrid noir
Paper: PTI white
Accessories: sewing machine, copics, atyou spica glitter pen (black), pop dots, sakura microperm 03 black pen

My second late night card was inspired by my youngest who has been busy "barbecueing" lately. He spends hours pretending to cook up yummies for all of us! I paper pieced the BBQ with red shimmer paper so it is quite sparkly IRL. I coloured the BBQ tools, handles and little round feet with glitter pens for added sparkle. The black gingham paper made a great base...can't get enough gingham lately!!

Stamps: A muse (BBQ, what's cookin', grass)
Ink: Palette hybrid noir, SU old olive
Paper: A muse (gingham, red shimmer), SU (basic black), PTI white
Accessories: atyou spica glitter pens, pop dots, red twill ribbon

Hope you like them! Thanks for stopping by...

I too create into the early morning hours. Sometimes I'll even wait in the middle of the night with an idea and just have to go create it! Both cards are so super fun! Those images are too cute!
