I am happy to have been chosen as the guest designer for March over on the Creative Inspirations challenge blog - such a lovely group of ladies and very interesting challenges too!
This week the theme is 'In the Garden' so I have chosen to create my spring card with cute Toby Tumbles 'say it with flowers' digi image, and he is also available in rubber if you like to get inky. I've coloured him with my Copic pens then added a little Old Paper Distress Stickles to the centres of the flowers - I used my finger as instructed by Tim Holtz, and also rubbed over the stamped text greeting, but I'm not sure about this stuff. I had a bit of a dilemma when it came to putting the card together - why did I give cute little Toby an orange romper suit? Thankfully, I found a little piece of buttercup digi paper from Cuddly Buddly and together with some soft orange and cream cardstock, Versamagic chalk inks in Mango Madness and Thatched Straw for inked edges, a scrap of cream ribbon and my cream Waco pearl maker pen I was almost there. To finish off I punched out little butterflies with a Nellies Choice punch and emboss set then added little pearl gems for the bodies.
I'm also entering my card in to the challenges at One Stop Craft for spring flowers, Die Cut Dreams a spring garden scene, By the Cute and Girly springtime and Lollipop Crafts who are thinking spring. I am still feeling pretty rotten so am not visiting my blogging friends this week, but I do appreciate you stopping by to see me and thank you so much for your kind thoughts and get well wishes.
