Good morning everyone how are you all? Well I cant believe we have had SUNSHINE all week so far, wow we are being spoilt. The sun & some tunes can always put me in a good mood & set me smiling for the day.
Anyway I'm here today with a card with a stamp that I tried soooooooo hard not to buy until I have inked all of my others...........but yep as you will see I failed last week & brought this furry fella........
In my defense though, look he's soooooooo freakin' cute!!!
I think I did well lasting until last week...........I only got 4 of the new bears though I was good ;0) The gorgeous papers are the new LOTV 'Timeless Victorian' yeah ok I got a new pad as well lol but the colours are soooooooooo gorgeous!!!
The card was made with a large Go-Kreate die. The charm is from my stash & I attached it to the lace using a Tim Holtz safety pin.
The lilac seam binding ribbon is from my stash & I attached a 'Metal Rose' some 'Lilac Pearl String', a bit of string/twine & the dangly thing is Tim Holtz 'Idea-Ology Bauble', you can now get these here.
The sentiment is LOTV 'Sentiment Tags'.
Ok I made this card to fit 2 challenges, I try to keep my eye on these challenges all the time.
The main one is LOTV Monthly challenge which is 'Bingo'. I couldn't decide which line to go for though so did the whole board ;0) I added some extra twine in the button just incase string is not counted. I also added a pin into the flowers with a gem on ;0)
Out of the new bears this & another one are my faves, I also painted the other one lol.
This cutie is of course 'James Umbrella' & I coloured him with distress markers.
I have to admit I kept singing Rhianna 'Under my umbrella' when I was colouring this up lol, hence the title of my post ;0)
All the flowers are WOC. The edge die cut is Marianne 'Anja Border LR0300' & I inked it with 'Milled Lavender' distress ink, I lurve this die!!! The corner die is Joy Crafts & that was also inked. The beautiful lace is called 'Coco (55mm)' & I added 'Shabby Pearl Rose Organza' on top at each side. I also added 2 more LOTV 'Sentiment Tags' to the bottom to say 'You're wonderful my friend'.
Well thats it from me I have painting to do, its taking so long to do the craft room but in between Natalie being poorly & of course normal life to life things as well its took time away from getting it finished. The end is in sight though lol. Natalie is coming to the end of her flu thank goodness, its took her 2 weeks to get there bless her.
Thanks for stopping by big hugs to you all.
Tatty bye & take care lovelies
