Cute Card Thursday our challenge theme is 'Something New' and we would like to see you use a new stamp or maybe try out a new technique. We have a new sponsor too, All Dressed Up, with a unique range of digi stamps. Stop by the CCT blog to read all about it and see what the rest of the DT has created.
Back to my card - my new something is the cute Lili of the Valley baby buggy stamp that I coloured with my Copic pens then added white dots to the fabric of the buggy. It's an easy image to colour and perfect for a more modern look baby card - and here's my take:
Apologies for the rather dull picture, with the awful weather we've been having the light is poor even during the day time so I had to snap with the flash. The papers are more pieces of digi designs from my basket, these are from an Eline's baby set at Cuddly Buddly. I stamped up the LOTV baby text that came with another stamp and cut it out with a fancy die shape, added the stripy blue ribbon as it was a perfect match for my papers, and decorated with various Marianne Design die cut bits and pieces, here's the list:
Baby word - LR0217
lace edge - LR0161
image cut with scallop edge heart die - CR1225
daisy flowers - LR0106, stamens from LR0105
leaves - LR0227
And it's a fairly flat card as I stuck everything down with craft glue, no foam or tape on this one, I might even get away with the knot on the ribbon through the slim slot at the post office. The pearls in the centres of the flowers are made with my pearl pen and are flattish so shouldn't be a problem - I think I'm getting the hang of adding the interest without the depth.
Craft Your Passion challenge is for spots and stripes, I have spots on my dp, and the buggy, and stripes on my ribbon. At Created with Love it's anything goes, while at Everybody Art they are looking for hearts - mine is the one big one used to die cut my image.
Well I had my chest x-ray yesterday but the radiographer couldn't tell me anything, other than if there's a problem my GP will be phoning in a couple of days .. .. so it's a waiting game. I just want to know why I am feeling so tired all the time. I was hoping to drive to the craft fair at Westpoint, Exeter today, hubby says it's a pretty easy drive from here and will take me just over the hour - but I feel exhausted and not entirely with it for driving. Friends are going up by train tomorrow, but the weather forecast is not good and I would still have a fair bit of driving to do to get me to the main line station for the train to Exeter and then there's the shuttle bus to the show - not a pleasant prospect in a storm and it would mean getting up early too .. .. ah well, maybe next year!
