Sarah Kay Spring Time
I finally managed to complete a card! The image is one of my older Sarah Kay stamps called Precious Moments, stamped in brown Momento ink and coloured with Copic pens. The papers are bits and pieces left lying around, some from the Spring Chic pack but the background dotty piece was a magazine freebie years ago. I've matted everything with SU! Baja Breeze and used the sketch from Sunday Sketch and Stamp challenge blog for the layout.
The Diva's by Design challenge is anything goes, while Totally Gorjuss are looking for anything with pink, well I have touches of pink!
I was rather afraid the card was looking a little dull, and not just because the light had almost gone when I got around to taking the picture. So, as there was a hint of pink in the flowery paper I cut some pretty pink flowers. from scraps of plain and pink gingham paper and added the pink gems to lighten things up. Mr Mojo has still not returned so when it came to decoration I just fiddled about with various diecuts .. .. I hope you think it's ok.
The Marianne dies I used are:
swirl, flowers and large seed heads LR0111
small stamens in centre of the flowers cut from LR0105
Nothing new to say about the home situation .. .. the promised visits never materialised and phone calls have been short and hardly sweet, that's when I can get through at all. Thankfully Jason and his girlfriend are here again this weekend to keep me company and I am trying to get on with my crafting while they tackle the DIY.
