Download Diva!

Yay! My scheduled post for The Squirrel and the Fox appeared! And the sun shone today! It's St Swithun's Day, and traditionally whatever the weather is for today, it will be the same for the next 40 days. So maybe, just maybe, we'll be turning off the heating soon!


This card is for a young lady at Church who's of Indian origin. I'm not 100% happy with the colouring with Speccies - this was my third attempt. Practice makes perfect, though!

I used a new Nestie, Labels Five, to die-cut the image. The papers are Nitwits Cherry Blossom Too from my snippets box. I used a pink heart-shaped doily from stash, and the pink lace came from my local market. The sentiment is The Greetings Farm, stamped in Worn Lipstick Distress inks, then stickled. I also glossy accented the pink iPod.

The pink heart is from stash - I found it while tidying because it got stuck on my hand! The flowers are cut with a Spellbinders Rose die set, distressed with Frayed Burlap, then stickled, and the gem brads are Papermania. The gold corner is Whiff of Joy, I think!

Here's the inside.  It's all very pink, isn't it?!

Because I used snippets I'm going to enter Pixie's Crafty Snippets Challenge. Will it be dry enough to sit on the bench at dinner break to eat our packed lunch, do you think?!

Thanks for looking, and have a good week!

Hi Mags, the playground is very wet today :(

Love this card and all the detail (pink rules OK!) - the Nesties Label die is terrific, one for the wish list!

And the colouring, and skin tone, are just right to me! Love everything about this gorgeous card.

Hugs, Di xx
