I hope I am safe to post this card now, as I sent it to a friend with a few goodies yesterday to cheer her up!
I'm so pleased that I can finally join in with the High Hopes Challenges, having received my delivery of stamps from the latest collection this weekend. I believe this one is called 'Sweet Dreams' and it's my fave by far........ talk about chillaxing, lol! The theme this week at HH is circles and I've also entered this card in to the Stamp With Fun Challenge where the brief is polka dots.
I sat making my card on Sunday night whilst the hubster was watching cricket. I coloured the image with my Polys and I must admit it did take me an age to get things just how I wanted because I'm a bit slow when it comes to blending. Every now and then he would huff a bit and then he said 'blimey I can't believe how long you're spending colouring in one tiny picture..... are you sure it's really worth it?' I didn't rise to the bait and just smiled....... they just don't have a clue, do they, lol!
I used papers from the Basic Grey Porcelain range and the flowers are a mix of Primas and Flora Doodles. The leaves have been die cut using a QuicKutz die and I've added some sticky lace strips made by Around The Block. The ticket sentiment was sent to me with some birthday goodies a while back by the lovely Martine.
Well I had fun with this one and I hope you like it too!
Toodles for now - thanks so much for stopping by for a peek and, if you've left me a comment, then you're a gem!
Cardmaking is my passion and I love sharing tips and ideas with other talented crafters. I wake up with ideas buzzing around in my head and go to sleep the same way. My family think I'm bonkers but that's fine by me. I have an ever-growing wishlist, made worse by all the wonderful cards I see when hopping around on a daily basis. I have made some wonderful friends through my hobby, long may it continue!!
