All our dreams.....


I've been having a little play with some of my Christmas goodies.  I got a few LOTV stamps but this one has got to be my fave. Now I don't have a new baby to be making a card for just yet (although my friend's is due in May - so exciting!) so this one is just for fun....

And this is my first opportunity to use my new daylight lamp - the colours looked really dull without it.
A close-up of the image....

And the sentiment comes with the stamp too - fab!

A better piccie to see my faux stitching....

I used:
Image and sentiment - LOTV
Papers - Papermania, Henbury Lane
Sizzix swirl
Brush markers for faux stitching
Buttons and pearls from stash

CRAFT - Celebrations
Crafty Ribbons - New beginnings
Creative inspirations - Swirls and pearls
Cupcake craft challenges - Something new
Ladybug crafts ink - Use your new stash
Let's ink it up - Anything goes
Lili's little fairies - Favourite LOTV stamp
Moving along with the times - Spots and/or stripes
Paperplay - In stitches
Secret crafter Saturday challenge - Anything goes with blue
Simon says stamp - Spots and/or stripes

Wow! It's not like me to manage that many challenges for a card! Right, I'm cooking my Sunday dinner so I'd better be off. See you again soon :-)

Love 'n' hugs,
