Luv a latte!
Evening all! What a wet, wet, wet day! I hope none of you was caught in any heavy showers!
It's a good evening for staying in and being creative. My hubby is away for two nights, so I'm luxuriating in being able to craft downstairs without someone growling, 'You're not making a MESS are you?'
The answer is always - yes!
Now for the card! I've had this Sugar Nellie Simply Sassy 'Luv a Latte' stamp for a while, and she is just ideal for my goddaughter's birthday card. I coloured her with Promarkers - and I changed what I suspect are meant to be boots into thick socks. My goddaughter lives in Canterbury, which I know from experience can get soooo coooold! Brr! So thick socks are definitely necessary!
Papers are from my snippets box, they were freebies a couple of years ago from a magazine. Lace is from stash, too, and so are the gems.
I used a Magnolia doo-hickey die for the swirl and dragonfly which is cut from a scrap of pearlised card and decorated with gems. The flowers are cut with a Spellbinders Rose Creations set, the base is another paper scrap, the centre is glittered mulberry paper and the yellow brads are from stash.
I'm entering the Challenge at Feeling Sketchy It's nice to have a sketch that fits an A5 card!
I'm also entering Pixie's Crafty Snippets Challenge. I'll be in my mac and wellie-boots so I can jump in the puddles in the playground!
Stay warm and dry tonight, my lovelies! Thanks for looking!
