Happy times!

Hi everyone!  I bet you were wondering where I had gotten to!  Tons of posts early in the week and then - poof!  Nothing!  Well, I am busy crafting to keep up with my DT commitments but I've also started a course to get my project management qualification (I actually already have one but this one is a globally recognised one so more ooomph for my CV!).  Which means less time just to create and apologies that I haven't been visiting you every day like I normally would!  But will try to visit at least every other day, I promise!

Anyhoo, I made a card for Sparkle Creations Rubber Stamps - I had so much fun creating her that I completely forgot to follow the theme!  What a wally!  So I've had to make a another card for that but thought I should go ahead and share the card anyway....

 
 


I am lovin' these new Karber stamps for SCRS!  This Bubble Millie is so much fun to colour in!  I matched her up with Echo Park Sweet Summertime papers (from Quixotic Paperie here) and used My Favorite Things banner strip die (from Dies to Die For here).

Okay, that's it from me today - see you soon!


I am entering my card into the following challenges:



Paper/cardstock: Bazzill cardstock, Bazzill Bling cardstock, Echo Park Sweet Summertime papers (from Quixotic Paperie here)
Stamps: Bubble Millie Karber stamps for SCRS, Hero Arts dots background stamp, My Favorite Things sentiment inside card
Mediums: Copics
Accents: twine (from Quixotic Paperie here)

Tools: My Favorite Things banner strip die, Nestabilitie dies, Fiskars border die inside card

This is a fabulous card and I can see why you enjoyed doing it, lovely bright colours and a cute image.

As for LOTR he did not die as such but it was his saying goodbye to Sam and to me it read as if he was going off to die, I put it wrong on my blog, was in a bit of a rush.
