Coffee Time........

Good evening all my lovelies hope you've all had a lovely bank holiday weekend. It was sunny all day here today altho this afternoon that breeze turned rather cool.........altho it dried all my bedding so I shouldnt complain.
Well tonight I have followed a fabulous sketch, this I really enjoyed & if ever I'm stuck for a layout I will be using this again...everything just flowed together. Now the stamp I'm using I didnt think I had so a couple of weeks ago I ordered it & what do you know I do already have it......yep so at least you know 1 of the stamps that will be in my candy lol.
Here she is.........

This is 'Coffee Time' & she is one of the manga girls from Sugar Nellie at Funky Kits. Altho I hate coffee, I'm a tea drinker, black, strong & no sugar lol. I still love these manga's I will have the full collection 1 day lol.....I'm nearly there lol.

The card is made with A4 card & for the edge I used my WOJ heart die.....I love these. The twill sentiment is from Crafts & Me.

For the inside I used the sketch as well I just replaced the buttons for card candy which with the bakers twine I got from Crafty Emma's Store.

To colour her I used Copics.
E00 E21 E11 R20
E33 E50 E51 E31 E35
R46 & R59. Not many used for this.
The crocheted flower I made myself & added a button to the middle. I experimented with 2 different coloured wool, I'm getting brave & adventurous lol. The buttons are all from my stash

The lace & the twill ribbon is from my stash. The paper is the gorgeous Marianne Design A4 pad
'Roses are Red' which really is sooooo beautiful. The deep red A4 card for matting & A4 card for the card base are from Papermill Direct.
Well thats it from I'm off to link this up at the Sugar Bowl & then will be hopping around to see you all.
Thank you soooooo much for the lovely comments you left on my last card, actually thank you for all the comments you leave on my cards you are all awesome & I loves ya to bits mmwah.
Tatty bye for now my lovelies, take care & keep on smiling.

Hi hun! Sorry because I've been MIA for the last couple of days. I've been busy with other things.
I really like what you made with this card. Great layout and fab use of stamps. I have plenty of used postage stamps that I don't need so maybe I coulduse those on some of my projects too. Thanks for the inspiration.

KraftyKoolKat said...

I adore this card sweetie. You are a one not remembering you already have her. Lol!!! I adore your homemade embellies hunni you are very clever. I am a bit blue at the moment. Dad is poorly and has been rushed to hospital on Easter Sunday. He is holding his own at the moment. I think he wants to go as he lost my Mum last July and doesn't recognise anybody now and is in a nursing home as he can not look after himself. I am trying not to think about it all as worrying makes me worse.

Hope your little family is all well.
