Back 2 Skool, Again.

Yes, I left school, twice. There was me, working (slaving) somewhere unmentionable, for months and months, when along came these two men in black who told me I had to go back to school for a few more weeks. I wasn't happy! The whole class started banging on their desks and burst into a chorus of "I Hear You Knocking..." (I had knobbly knees!)
Not happy with this card. Can you see why? Run out of silicone glue last week. Hubby kindly said, 'let's go and find some' (after first suggesting I use the stuff left over from the bathroom) Well, miles out to the nearest craft store, bought some, not my normal stuff. Stick it! by DoCrafts. It was meant to be clear but it came out white, runny and sugary, like golden syrup goes when it's a bit old, and sticks to the tin, which looks like it's going rusty...(not that we keep our golden syrup that long!)
I'd already coloured and cut out four little moles ready to build up, so there's four layers, plus the smiley face, the flower and his glasses, which I also added Glossy Accents to. I put it all together and look, the glue's seeped through! Great big stains of greasy glue on Moley's face, arm and body. So, I'm never going to buy that glue again! But apart from that, I'm very pleased how Moley turned out. You will find him HERE in my store, Spyder's Other Corner.
This easel card did start life as a sketch from one of the magazines I have, but I can't find it now! Things used were, Bazzil Card, My digi, Promarkers, Woodware punch, Quickutz, Candi, buttons, ribbon, Skool brads, black brads, sticky stuff used on carpets, to stop them from slipping and Glossy Accents.
The sentiments were done on the computer. (White on black) The font is a freebie, it's called Crazy Girlz Blond BTN and you can download it HERE where there's a few more types of the same font if you want them!
There would be more pictures, but my camera's on charge!
Today I achieved two things... one, the zip file and the spell check on my computer had disappeared. Now, I NEED, my spell checker. It automatically checks blogger as I type here, and also when I type your comments, and without it's help, you'd never understand a thing I type! But, after Googling said problem, I found out how to reload one and use a code to re-install the other, so, big toffee apple for me!! (Or in this case, a gold star!!) I've found a few Challenges hope my card fits in! Village Fete tomorrow ....helping mum.... wish me luck!!
