Just a quick post tonight to share my take on the My Favourite Things Sketch Challenge #321.

This is the first time that I have entered a card in a MFT challenge.  Unfortunately I don't own any MFT stamp sets....yet (I have a few on their way to me as we speak).

I thought I would think outside of the box and use a stamp and some masking to replicate the sketch.  It was quite a time consuming card to make but I enjoyed it and am happy with how it came together.
Stamps used were from Mama Elephant's Central Park and Filigree stamp sets.

Thanks for stopping by :)

I Love Roo

So I have been AWOL for a while now.  Sometimes life just gets in the way of doing the things that you love.

On top of that the craft room/office was in a terrible mess that just kept getting worse and worse.  Over the Christmas break my husband and I got stuck in and gave it a real good clean out.  Two full days and lots of garbage bags later we had a clean and organised room again.

So with a clutter free space to work in again I got back into the card making.  And what better way to get into the swing of things than by entering a card in a challenge.

I will just squeeze in getting this card into the Paper Smooches February Challenge - Love.

I made a bit of a miscalculation when cutting down the card stock....that's what happens when you aren't paying full attention!  I managed to save it by sticking a piece of patterned paper from an old October Afternoon paper pad along the side.  Glad I made the mistake because I actually like how it turned out.  I used A Little Lovin stamp set for the main image and sentiment and die cut some little love hearts out of the same patterned paper.

Have a great day or night, wherever you are in the world.
