Here is a card I managed to finish last night using another of the gorgeous stamps from the new collection at Motivet. If you haven't already visited their site and made a purchase then I urge you to do so...... there is so much delish rubber to be found!!! This beauty was such a joy to colour.
The papers I've used are from a new collection by Papermania called Persimmon and they have a distinctly vintage feel which I adore. The lace, cardboard corners and black dew drops were all sent to me by my lovely friend Annika..... that girl really knows my taste I can tell you. I love everything she sent me!!! I punched out some of the flowers with an EK Success punch and the leaves with a Leone Em punch. The additional flowers are from Wild Orchid Crafts which means I can enter my card into their very first challenge which can be found here...... the theme this week is 'Say It With Flowers'. I found the perfect sentiment to match my image too..... this is one of the vintage transfers by Melissa Frances.
Well today is a bit of a sad day for me as I finish childminding after eight years! As well as working school hours in a college I also look after a boy before and after school and today is his last day with me as he's moving on to High School in September. It will seem so strange when I no longer have him as he has become one of the family really and has got on so well with my own kids. He arrived with his Mum this morning laden with a huge bouquet of flowers and some gifts..... I really did feel a bit choked!!! Oh well, things do have to move on I suppose and it's only one more year until my youngest starts High School so things will change again.
I'm off to work now, armed with some beautiful gifts for a colleague who has turned twenty one. We had a collection in the office and I went shopping..... I'm always the one chosen to shop which is probably because I'm a total shopaholic..... something I think all of us lot can identify with right, lol?!
Have a fun day and thanks so much for calling on me today ;o)
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!!
