I am a couple hours late posting this as I have had the grand children for a sleepover and a drop by visit from my younger sister (who lives 4 hours away).
We took the kids to the matinee yesterday and then back to ours for a visit and a sleepover. What fun!
They have just left for church and thought I had better get this posted before they are back to pick up their things and have a yummy piece of chocolate cake and a nice cuppa. Little Mr. P was in tears as they left for church. He wanted to stay and have the cake now! lol
Onto hearts and red...the great theme that Mary H. at Carolina Cards, chose for this fortnight. I decided to colour up the same Bugaboo stamp that I used for my guest design post at Craftyhazelnut's Christmas Challenge Extra. You can get it here at Bugaboo Stamps
Hazel was nice to send me some Bugaboo images and I coloured this one up again in red. Although I used the same design papers, I think there is enough red in the lats, flowers and velvet rickrack to qualify. Did you spy my heart? It is the center of the larger poinsettia.
I used the Sakura Jelly Roll pen again to hilight the stars and the halo. The cloud and Wings have had wee bit of stickles added.
And here is the inside...all ready for Christmas. I made up a couple of these matted sentiments, as I plan to make a few more of this card.
I had fun making this one as these bright patterned papers have grown on me and seem to cast a cheery feeling. The velvet rickrack was a snippet that I found when I was cleaning my room in January. I really like it as the fabric is flocked like velvet and does not fray easily...in other words it does not need to be wrapped around the card to hide the edges. Yay!
It is amazing what little bits of things get "mislaid" after working on a project. I found some lovely mislaid treasures and I even found a cling stamp that has been missing forever...it was stick onto the back of another cling. Good thing I had that sort out as I was sure glad to find these things!
