Me and My Best Friend

Hi everyone,

And it’s Sunday evening again … unbelievable how time flies before we start a new week tomorrow. I have a card for you today in peach and green colours as this is the challenge over at the Lili of the Valley Challenge blog this week. I love this stamp from Lili of the Valley as one can create a sort of tranquil scene. Hope I succeed in doing that! A new addition to my stamp collection is the postage stamp sentiments from Whimsy Stamps. I received these beauties from Bunny Zoe’s Crafts online store and the service is absolutely excellent –  worthwhile a visit for South African crafters as the shipping costs is minimal. I’m currently working on a few projects for May (will keep this as a surprise) but hopefully I can fit in another card for this week.

I entered my card in the following challenges:

 

I used the following to create the card:

  • Lili of the Valley stamp “Swing Time”
  • Whimsy Postage stamp sentiment
  • Whimsy Postage stamp die
  • Go Kreate dies “XXL Square Frame Frilly #1” (No 360021)
  • Marianne Design Creatables “LR0151”
  • Martha Stewart punch “Deco Fans”
  • TowBow pens for colouring
  • Ribbon
  • Paper roses
  • White, peach and green cardstock
  • Designer paper

Thanks for visiting today – hope you have the time to leave a comment so that I can come visit you too. Have a wonderful week and keep crafting.

Regards from South Africa,

Amelia

    Such pretty colours Amelia. I love the way you work your die cut positions. The stamp is adorable and your colouring so gentle, it suits the sweetness of the stamp. Altogether, a fabulous card, as always. Good luck with the challenge.
