Good moring every one; are you having a great day so far?
The weatherforecast told us there will be rain tonight. But it's not evening yet....Now the sun is shining and within two hours I am going to shop with my youngest son at IKEA. We'll have lunch together and I love days like this.. Lovely weather, spending time with of one my sons, go shopping, having fun. laughing and talking. Tonight my husband and I will be having chinese food for dinner (take out) so it's an easy peasy day of cooking....
And I think I will be making a card tonight....
But first a new challenge and it's a great challenge...
I love this weeks' challenge at the City Crafter Challenge Blog .
This week it's about a sketch. Here it is:
I knew immediately I wanted to work with my favorite color: blue.
I had some color inspiration right here in front of me; from my coffee mug!
Here is my coffee mug:
I made a card but wasn't pleased about the blue background. So I put another piece of white cardstock on top of it. I embossed it with my favorite embossing folder ( Victorian from Cuttlebug)
The blue DP are from Crea Motion; the pink cardstock is from my stash. The flower image is a die cut out of a piece of gift paper from a very popular brand here in the Netherlands; it's called PIP studios. My coffeemug is also made by them. I never thought I would have so much fun with just a simple piece of gift paper...:). The flower and gingham paper are both cut with my Spellbinder labels one die.. the tag is cut with label die 4. I cut a small piece of gingham paper and added a small scalloped border; made with one of my MS border punches. And of course some lace... I punched the butterfly and added the tag. The sentiment stamp is from Waltzingmouse Stamps; stamped with Paris Dusk from Tsukineko. I distressed the edges of the tag with Antique Linen. I also inked the edges of blue cardstock with Cream from Color Box. The pin is from June .
Here is my card:
I am so happy about this card!
Have a wonderful day!
