Good evening from my home to yours, it's been a long day. I had tickets to a craft fair this morning and spent several hours perusing the different stalls. There were only 3 proper cardmaking stalls, lots of quilting and beading stalls. I did get a few bits and pieces but no little character stamps, they were mostly backgrounds and a few little animals and some Christmas, lots of stamps to make scenes, e.g. lakes, trees, grass and so on. I did get one of an elephant on a motorbike!
I went with Jane and she rushed back and dropped me off. I got my stamping gear organised and then drove over to her house for our weekly Thursday group. Most of the others couldn't come except Joyce and she has been on holidays for a month, so was nice to catch up. Jane had to leave to have a medical test so left us at her house. We had afternoon tea and packed up and closed her house up for her.
Back home, washed a load of work clothes for my hubby. We go out for tea on Thursdays with Joyce and her husband, my youngest son had rung earlier and told me that he, his girlfriend, her son and my number 2 son were going to come out with us. So.. had to ring the hotel and book 4 extra seats. About an hour later no. 2 daughter rings up and asks if she and her boyfriend could come out with us, So... another phone call to the hotel to see if we could get more seats. Luckily they weren't too busy and our regular table grew from 4 seats to 9! I decided not to go our for choir practise so brought the washing in, watched some tv and played around making my card for today,
This is it!
The basecard is blue, same one I used yesterday and I've also used the scraps of the green card from Shirley, so this is number two card made from her gift of card.
I used DP from a DCWV matstack called Linen Closet. The image is from Annabelle Stamps and I bought it with a voucher that I won. The sentiment is from SU Teeny Tiny Sentiments. I stamped the little girl in Close to Cocoa. I didn't stamp the whole image as I didn't want to make my square any bigger, so you can only see part of her boots. I coloured her with Copics. Added a little butterfly and a button with bakers twine bow.
I would like to enter this into the November challenge at Bling It On - which is a sketch with the addition of a butterfly
Also into the Simon Says Stamp challenge - Simon Says.....BUTTONS
