It's been a busy week! Hubby and I went to Prague for three nights and I am behind with my blog comments and crafting. I did manage to whip up a quick card for a lovely friend of Tom's called Mo.
We ran into Mo at a drinks party recently having been out of touch for too long. She is so lovely; warm, affectionate and giggly. Someone at the party said how great it would be if all that lovely warmth could be bottled. She was modestly very touched by the comment. So with this in mind, I made a card for her which I am entering into One Stop's challenge of "how sentimental" and Papertake Weekly's challenge for "just the one". The main feature of my card is this fabulous sentiment stamp by Waltzing Mouse which fits perfectly into Spellbinder Nesties Labels 4. There is a second little squiggle (like the one under the word "pure") on the orignal stamp but I simply wiped my ink from that section and word processed the words "Eau de Mo" in it's place. I used "only the one" colour - brown. I cut my bottle using my Cricut Machine, the George and Basic Shapes cartridge and my Cricut Studio Programme. I welded a tag shape with a rectangle, topped with a triange and hey presto - got myself a bottle shape. I printed a partial flourish (from the same WM stamp set) and cut it partially with a scalloped oval Nestie to add a little something to the neck of the bottle. It is a very simple card, using some papers from my scrap box, but it's perfect for the recipient!
Hi, I'm Lesley. Welcome to my Blog. I am older than I used to be but feel younger since I stopped working full-time and started making cards for friends and family just a few years ago. I love visiting all of the talented creative blogs out there and gaining inspiration for my own work. I am more than happy for you to gain inspiration from my "stuff" too but the copyright for the content of this blog belongs to me, unless otherwise stated, and I would ask you to please respect my copyright. Although not very visible in my card making; I have a passion for frogs - hence the name of my site.
Thank you for stopping by!
