Another Card :)

Well life has surely got in the way of my crafting and at busy times like this I love to make cards. Because I can stamp and colour my image and then come back the next day to make my card, this way I get to play every day even if its just for a little. It hasn't helped that I have had two very sore fingers from playing netball, the one I still can't bend and its been a week and a half already :(

Ok back to my card..........lol

Sorry about the crooked photo, was in a rush to get the pics done :( I am going to enter this card in Cute Card Thursday, the challenge was to stamp on Kraft cardstock. I have never done this before so it was definately a new challenge for me :) And Tickled Pink Stamps Challenge - Distress, well that was easy for me because I am always doing that!

Thanks for popping by and for your lovely comments!!! I will be back tomorrow with another card and a gorgeous Sweetpea stamp.

Aqua, Pink and Cream

Thats Whiff of Joys challenge #104, such beautiful colours. I used Melinda Blowing Kisses, isn't she sweet!

These colours are alot softer than my usual but I loved the end result and had fun with lots of distressing, machine stitching, flowers and distress stickles for some bling. I just need to get my inky little hands on some more Whiff of Joy images, they are just so sweet!!!!

Thanks for popping by and for your lovely comments, hope you all are having a fabulous weekend!!!
