Another one of those cards I'm not so sure I like but I'm posting it anyway. This is for two challenges (tame I know!) Creative Inspirations set the sketch with brads or eyelets and Sunflowers and Dragonflies suggest - 'Sweet Tooth'. I won last weeks challenge at Creative Inspirations and have a bag of scrummy ribbons on their way to me!
The Cupcake is a digi stamp from Pink Petticoat and the little girl sitting on top is a Squiggles rubber stamp I won in some candy from Evelina. I shaded her with ProMarkers and surprisingly added some Glamour Dust!
I did lots of embossing for the strips and added some patterned paper also from Pink Petticoat. My giant eyelet is actually a grommet so I hope it counts. It's another one of the set that came with my Big Bite - I've been so brave to use two in the space of a week! The sort of thing I hang on to for ages before using.
And I must show you this fabulous card my friend Sue made for me:
It's a lovely thank you card in my favourite pinks (which Sue doesn't enjoy using at all!). Isn't it gorgeous? I gave her a little box of goodies when we met up last week and it was so worth it to see her face and of course to receive this in return. We've got a stash admiring / shopping trips planned for next month, can''t wait. A new shop has opened in her village and we've realised we're in driving distance of some very interesting sounding craft shops nearer my way too!
