Hello friends! I hope that you all had a fantastic Christmas time, and hoping you have a happy and healthy 2017 too.
I may not have posted for a while, but I did make some cards. I
just didn't take photographs or blog any of my work. We're busy getting
ready for the arrival of our new grandson, due 4th March, although the scans are showing him further ahead so may be a week or 2 earlier. *we're so excited!*
So yes, i'm back. More importantly though, Faith is back too :)
Did you grab the Bunny Love freebie? No? well go get yours now, trust me, you NEED it for your collection, it is TOO adorable!
For my first post of 2017, i'd like to welcome you to my stop on this month's From the Heart Stamps blog hop.
Our theme is Love and Friendship. The girls have made some wonderful examples to show you.
If you've arrived here from Imke's blog, you are in the
If you haven't, why don’t you start at the From the Heart Stamps blog, so you don’t miss anything. The full hop list is there too.
I'm using Easter Egg Birdbrains for my card. Not so much to make a card for Easter, but more because I love the 'true friend' sentiment which is one of 4 that you get in this set. You also get an extra image, which is a row of patterned eggs.
Here's my card...
I coloured the image with promarkers, but lightly sponged the sky with ink.
Once coloured, I gave it a pretty scalloped top by using a Marianne border die (wave).
The sentiment was printed onto pale blue card and glued above the image as shown.
I used strips of patterned paper top and bottom (Lawn Fawn's Perfectly Plaid).
The little heart embellishment at the top is from the Heart of Hearts die by Impression Obsession.
Though you can't see it, I also added a bit of clear Wink of Stella on the pink card stock, butterflies and egg shell to complete my card.
I'm entering this card at:
Cute Card Thursday - something fun to make you smile
Crafty Catz - anything goes with a twist (ladies card)
Brown Sugar Challenge - anything goes
Passion for Promarkers - all creatures great and small
I love Promarkers - anything goes
