Scroll down for the card babbling and stuff…

I haven’t finished painting for the weekend – one coat to go – but wanted to quickly post that comment number 4 (Christiana) is the winner of the Cuttlebug Dies.  Christiana – I’ll be sending you a message requesting your snail mail so I can get those dies in the mail ASAP.

I hope to be back with a card later.  I coloured some images yesterday afternoon but haven’t turned them into a card yet…

Yay!  Back with a card.  Sadly, I still have to get that coat of paint done and I’m losing daylight but I was totally zonked and needed a break.  I’m a bit tired to feel inspired today but I’ve got my first Mother’s Day design in place and managed to crank out a couple of cards (same design so I’m just sharing one!)

I’ve been trying to take my pictures on a bit of an angle so you can see the details a little better.  I’m not sure if that’s really working out…

This card is probably a bit of an odd colour combo for Mother’s Day.  I must try to make a more pastel option next time I work on Mom’s Day.

I used some Cosmo Cricket paper and a Penny Black stamp.  The stamp is fairly tiny so I felt the need to double mat the image.  I zig zag stitched around the edges of the PP (I’ll be doing straight stitching in the future – at least until my skill level develops) and distressed the layers of the stamped image.

My colouring method this time around was OMS and prisma colouring pencils.  Haven’t done that in a little while so I thought I’d give my pencils some love.

You can’t see it in the picture but there is some Sakura Stardust glitter on the flowers.

I also made a ribbellishment from some Old Olive grosgrain ribbon and a button.  I felt the card needed a little something else so I made some custom dew drops (they’re still wet in the picture but when they dry they’ll match the CS exactly (I use a hole punch to make the circles and glue a dew drop on top of that.  No need to own a kazillion packages of dew drops.)

I have to go…gotta gear up for the last coat of paint.  Urk!
