First Whimsy DT Card

>> Tuesday, 8 September 2009

It seems like AGES since I last posted a card.  Both Thomas and I had a tummy bug last week which knocked us out for a few days and then it took me as many days to catch up with jobs.

Earlier this year Denise asked me if I would be a Guest Designer for Whimsy Stamps in September.  Of course I said yes and my stamps arrived at the weekend.  I love this little frog – he looks all misty eyed and in love and he’s coloured with distress inks and tombow pens.  I didn’t have the right colour cardstock so I created my own by sponging cream card with Broken China distress ink.   This week the Whimsy Stamp Challenge is to use sewing on your card so I’ve added some faux stitching.  The sketch is from this weeks Spoon Full of Sugar challenge and I’m also entering this in the Basic Grey challenge which has a photo to give you inspiration (I picked up the colour of the bed throw).
