Hope you are all well and had a good week. I have been busy in the garden and haven't had lot of time for anything else. But it will all be worth it when the garden is done.
An exciting post for me today. I entered a challenge at Little Claire's a few weeks ago and was delighted to be asked to be a guest designer for August and September together with the lovely Rachel. Thank you to Little Claire's for asking me. Today sees the start of their new challenge which is:
A Mans Birthday Card
Here is the card that I have created using Hot Air Balloons stamp.
I stamped the hot air balloons and the hills onto some white card. The hot air balloons were then stamped again onto the same paper as the background and paper pieced. I also paper pieced the hills by stamping onto a couple of different shades of green paper. The background paper is from my scraps box. I cut some corners out of kraft card and added a bit of distress ink. Some ribbon, a sentiment and some large pearly dots finished the card.
I then decided to make a mini card.
The balloons were again paper pieced and I just added a stamped sentiment and some stickles around the image.
Here are both cards together.
Thanks for popping by and would love to see you enter the challenge at Little Claire's. Just pop over for full challenge details. Don't forget to check out the creations from the talented design team.
