... and a very happy Sunday to you too.
You may have noticed that I've been missing for a few days. On Thursday my daughter and I tootled up to Glasgow SECC to the Creative Stitches and Hobby Craft shows ... lots of photos taken which I'll include in a post soon. On Friday we drove our son-in-law to and from the day unit at Crosshouse Hospital ... he had a wee operation on his elbow ... the patient is doing well. Saturday was spent recovering from Thursday and Friday!
Today I'm fighting fit again and I have this little card to share with you.
The topper is made from three ovals, cArt-Us Oval dies, using a snippet of white card, for the stamped image, pink sorbet from PaperMill Direct, and the delicate pastel green card, a gift from my lovely friend, Di.
I combined two stamps, the Penny Black vase of greenery, Simplicity, and the greeting from Inkylicious' set Sentiments 1, stamped with a grey ink, Memento London Fog, and coloured with ProMarkers, Lime Zest, Leaf Green, Ice Grey 1.
To give it a pretty pink edging it's been sponged with Ranger's Spun Sugar distress ink. And just to be little different I placed the three layers off to the right side ... leaving the perfect margin for placing the butterfly, that was cut from the pink sorbet and using a freebie die from Simply Cards & Papercraft, then decorated with Stickles Cotton Candy and tiny pink gems, Anita's.
Pastel green satin ribbon from Papermania Spots & Stripes Festive Assorted, and narrow cream cotton lace from Marianne were used for the trimming on the card.
I'm submitting this card to the following challenges:
Hazel's Craftyhazelnut's Patterned Paper March challenge - using up patterned paper on the front
Right, I'm off to check my pots for water ... some have little seedlings popping through already ... so exciting :) Then I have a long list of crafty things to be getting on with including post all the fab pics taken at the craft show on Thursday ... I don't know, I take a few days off and the list just gets longer :)
Hope you are having a wonderful day.
