Coffee Time

As promised, here's my DT card for the Cute Card Thursday challenge to make your own embellishments. Our sponsor for this challenge is Whimsy Stamps, please stop by the CCT blog to read all about it and see the rest of the DTs creations.

 I've used another cute Daisy stamp, this one is called coffee time and is one of my favourites.  I've coloured with my Copic pens then cut out the image with a MD die to fix to my card, here:

The colours are looking a bit strange on my pc - but it has just done a major upgrade after being inactive for almost a week so I wonder if that's something to do with it, or the fact that I'm now viewing on my tv instead of my little old monitor .. .. ah well, the wonders of technology!  The base is actually cut with a Go Create Frilly #10 die from Sage Shadow card by SU!  I've used off cuts of the same for my swirls and the coffee pot set.  All my embellishments are handmade, cut from dies then titivated with ink, glitter and pearls.

These are the Marianne things I used for this card:
Daisy Coffee Time stamp - DDS3328
patterned paper from Hello Sweet Baby - PB7041
die to cut image - CR1248
swirls snipped from LR0111
flowers also from LR0111, and the flower stamens with the ends inked then Stickled with Sugar Candy
glittery fronds given the same treatment - LR0106
coffee/tea set - LR0315 with the embossed dots gone over with a pink Sakara Souffle pen

The Papertake Weekly challenge theme is for pretty pastels, so I can enter my card with them as I'm all pastel pink and pastel green.

It looks like another sunny day today so I'll potter about a bit more in the garden.  I managed to get 3 wigwams banged in for the sweetpeas yesterday, those poor things were getting fed up of being in their pots and desperately needed to climb sunwards - a variety called Charlies Angels that is scented, and blue .. .. this is not a colour coordinated bed as the roses that still survive there are mostly pink, there's a blue creepy thing, white cosmos and a little purple scabious.  As long as I keep out any yellow or orange I can probably get away with it!  Trouble is, the red poppies from last year have self seeded everywhere and I don't have the heart to clear them out, ah well, at least there will be flowers as long as the sun keeps shining!
