Happy Sunday morning everyone. I had a bit of a puzzle going on here over the weekend - I felt like taking part in a challenge, which I haven't done for yonks, and hopped over to two of my favourite challenge sites, Penny Black and Daring Cardmakers. They were both looking for Easter cards (with the Penny Black challenge you have to use a PB stamp of course). Not a problem I thought, as I started wading through drawers and drawers full of stamps. Was there an Easter bunny to be found? No, not one, nada, zilch...
Of course, once I get an idea into my head, I get determined to carry it through, so I fished out my favourite PB flower stamp, slapped some paper onto a cricut mat, and here is what I came up with.
Yes, I know that the colours aren't typical, the flowers aren't daffodils or lilies, but I am defiant, I really like the look of this one.......
The base card is by Craftwork Cards, border punch by Martha Stewart, and lettering by Making Memories. The egg shape was cut from Create a Critter on blackout, at 4", then cuttlebugged with the d'vine swirls folder. I stamped the flowers onto the egg, then again onto white cardstock and cut out the flower heads after colouring, which I stuck on with silicone glue to lift them I will be drawing a name by random.org later today for the Graduation cartridge, and will announce the winner in Monday's post
Lessons I learnt yesterday
1. Never use black ink when you are wearing a white top
2. If you lose a card element, be sure to check your backside, you are probably sitting on it
3. Microwave dinners do not look anything like the packaging
4. Microwave dinners do not taste like any recognisable food
5. If you think you are going blind suddenly, try cleaning your glasses
Yes, it was one of those days....... See you tomorrow
