Time for a bit of SUNSHINE!


Hi again friends

I thought maybe you would be getting bored with me making Christmas cards now, (I was, lol), so I figured it was time to bring a bit of sunshine into my cardmaking.  The image is an Elizabeth Bell  (I think), I haven't used it for ages, so I thought I'd give her an outing.  The card and gingham papers were dug out of my bits and pieces folder - I thought it was about time I used up a few odds and ends!!  The image was stamped and then masked so that I could add the background (a Magnolia Stamp).  I then coloured it with distress inks, and am particularly pleased with the way the sky turned out.  A bit of lace, some ribbon, and some homemade flowers, together with a sentiment stamp from Lynn at Crafts 4 you, and that's all there is to it.

I hope you've enjoyed my little bit of sunshine.

Hugs
