Stamp with fun #92 – DT card

Happy New Year everyone!  I hope you had a brilliant Christmas and Santa brought you lots of lovely crafty goodies.  I wish you all a happy and healthy 2011.  My goodness it’s been so long since my last post that I hope I remember what to do lol!  I apologise for the long gap between posts but I was really unprepared for Christmas this year and what with the snow coming too I just didn’t have time to craft or blog.  I hope my faithful followers haven’t deserted me Smile 

Onto today’s post and I’m sharing my card for this week’s stamp with fun challenge.  We have a lovely sketch by Saphira to work with this week so I hope you can play along with us.  Here is my card:

SWF #92 - sketch 

SWF #92 - sketch (close up)

I have used a super cute image from a set of stamps called “happy days” from the Greeting Farm and although I’ve had this set for quite a while this is the first time I’ve inked her up (terrible I know as she is just so adorable).  I have also used my new basic grey ‘marjolaine‘ paper pad, which is gorgeous. 

The rest of the design team have created gorgeous cards once again this week, so I hope you have time to pop over and check them out.  We really appreciate your comments and we love to visit your blogs and see what you’ve created. 

I would also like to enter my card into the following challenges:

Awe this is so cute, thank you for joining us at I ♥ Promarkers.

Rosemary said...

So much to comment on. Okay, first of all - I forgot to say in another comment that I LOVE your New Year's image - that party girl is having a great time and makes me smile when your blog appears.

Secondly, wowza - what a cute card! I love that image but I also really like that you chose non-girly colors (normally I am all about the pinks) but I think that sometimes we forget that girls (tall and small) love other colors as well and you chose very pretty ones. The coloring is great, I really need to practice mine to get better - people who do it so well like you inspire me!

Finally, THANK YOU for participating with us at Opus Gluei, this is perfect for our challenge!!!
