Papertake Weekly #28


Hi girls. Well we're at the beginning of another blogging week and it's getting pretty late in the year. I suppose for many of us winter has arrived with devastating effect and Christmas is just round the corner. What a gloomy start to my blog today - I hope you find something here that might bring a little joy.
I made this card for the Papertake Weekly challenge because I really liked the sketch they gave us. I decided to use Gillian Robert's "Mistletoe and Mice" by Stampavie. I think this stamp is one of the cutest I've seen. I coloured it using my Copic Ciaos. I didn't use any papers and used shades of Bazzil Bling card for everything. The corners were cut out of gold card on my Sizzix Bigshot using a Cuttlebug die and the sentiments were home made on my laptop using Microsoft Word. The flowers are handmade and the fronds were cut with a Martha Stewart punch. The basic card is quite plain but I liked the overall effect - I hope you do too.
If you can spare a minute I would love it if you left a comment just to let me know you visited and give me your opinion. I really appreciate every comment I get, they are so encouraging and helpful.
Thanks for visiting and I hope all goes well for you and that you have a happy crafting day.
Hugs,
