2nd post

Hello ... this is my second post today ... another challenge card .. this time for The Shabby Tea Room where the theme this week is "Sweet Dreams" ... a colour challenge based on this lovely photo ...


There's something so gentle and fresh about these colours ... and I am glad I found the time and inspiration to join in this week ... this is my take 


Something a little whimsical and soft ... a mixture of different papers ... lace, doily, seam binding and a sweet butterfly with a little tassel ...


... and I think this quote is so very apt ... 

Till soon

WaltzingMouse Challenge


 The syrup of kindness ... it comes in all forms ... it could just be a smile that somehow makes your day ... a hug when you most need it ... a card or phone call from a friend ... they are all little bits of kindness that we can give ... and in the giving ... we are giving to ourself  ...

I have a card to share that I made for this weeks challenge at WaltzingMouse based on this sketch 
This card didn't come easy ... my creativity seem to have left me this week ... I looked through my WM stamps ... tried a few things ... then discarded them ... disappointed I left it alone for a while ... then I cast my eye over the Rescue Remedies and suddenly it all fell into place ...


I love how these stamps fit so neatly with my SB dies ... I stamped onto cream card stock with brown ink then die cut it and cut a larger die out of canvass to back it with ... I used some gorgeous Bo Bunny paper for the background


A beautiful Prima flower and some pretty pearlescent ones with little pearls just seem to fit ... and believe it or not I had that tassel in my stash ... so my card was born ...
I hope you all have a lovely weekend ...

Keep safe
