Big Sister!


Hi there,

Today, inspite of the beautiful weather I was feeling inspired, so I made this card ready for my sister's birthday in August.  She's not really a 'cutesy' type of girl, which as you all know is my favourite style, but LOVES gardening, so I thought she might appreciate this digital image from Digi Doodle Shop.  They have some FAB images there, and designed two VERY special stamps of disabled children in wheelchairs especially for me!!   Once again, many thanks for that Judy!

Anyway, back to my card.  The paper is from Nitwits, Noah's Too collection.  I wanted to keep it fairly simple in order to preserve the country feel, but of course had to add some flowers, which come from my stash for a change!!  The leaves are an MS punch.  The swirly corner is a Cuttlebug die, and the candy is, as usual, home made.  I then added a bit of matching ribbon, and the charm which is a little touch that I hope she'll like.  Oh, and don't worry - she NEVER looks at my blog!!

Have a great weekend, and don't forget to let me know what you think of my little creation if you have time.

Hugs

  4. Hi Judi,

    Wow!! I'm stumbling over words, because I can't seem to put into words how impressed I am with this card. What a beautiful job you have done with this stamp! I love the gingham pattern (it's one of my favorites being a country gal), and your choices of colors are awesome - although I think as good as your coloring is, you could have colored this in "mudd" and it would be beautiful. You really must enter this in our "anything goes" challenge at Digi Doodle Shop's Best, I know my team would fall over your work as I have. Thank you so much for the fantastic job you did with this, and sharing it. I can hardly wait to get it in our store gallery.

    BIG hugs
