STILL under the weather...


 Ok, I might be suffering from flu, hardly able to talk because my throat is so sore and not feeling so great but hey, even now, I always try to look on the bright side. And today, my best form of medication came in the way of QVC UK and their Martha Stewart, Today's Special Value... *smiling* Yes, I needed cheering up and no, I couldn't resist this crafting temptation and yes, I did treat myself to it. I was one of the very lucky people to get it before it sold out early this morning...and now, I am one very happy crafter! I can't wait to receive it and start to play.

But in the meantime, I might feel up to making little "essential" purchases but I wasn't really feeling up to making cards again but here's another I've made earlier...

Some of you might recognize the cute Rachelle Anne Miller stamped image of Lily and Milo from a previous post but when I find stamps that I really love, I usually stamp the image a few times, sometimes using different inks and sometimes using different techniques, such as embossing the image with embossing powders. Then I know that when I want to make a quick card, I have the blank image on hand to colour or use how I want to.

So, for this card, I used some beautiful co-ordinating backing papers in blue and yellow and then coloured in my image using Promarker pens to match the papers. As finishing touches, I used a fine nibbed black marker pen to give a stitched look around the main image and then finally, added a aqua blue grosgrain ribbon.

  1. Tell the truth, considering your shopping prowess, you have a your own private number to call into QVC by this point! ;p Well, as long as it's items purchased to create beautiful papercraft items like this one, well then by all means, purchase away! :D

    Really love these stamps you've been showing lately...they're too cute not to love! Beautiful little card, baby!

    ...and get well SOON!


Thank you for all your comments and messages, they are all appreciated and I hope you'll come back and visit again soon...
