Morning all, happy weekend to you! Sending big, warm, furry hugs to those of you who are not feeling well - Dr Squirrel prescribes chocolate and cuddles.
Now then, this morning I have had to climb, kicking and screaming, out of my comfort zone to make a card for my sister-in-law's birthday. She is a crafter too but has a style that is all her own. She doesn't do stamps! Aargh, how is that possible?! So, rather than make her something she wouldn't actually like (seemed a bit selfish to make one that I liked when she's the one that's got to look at it) I had a go at trying to make something like she would. And blimey, it was difficult!
Starting from the back, dark green lace paper is Papermania from the Verde Capsule Collection, cream, pink and green butterfly paper from Laura Ashley, small butterflies are an EK Success punch, the large one is Martha Stewart, tiny flowers are EK Success, leaves are Martha Stewart. I had to get one stamp on here at least so used the LOTV birthday sentiment with a green Memento ink. Gems and pearls are all from stash.
It was an effort so I hope that it pays off!
Before I dash off, quick reminder that my January Candy closes in two days (link in sidebar) so you still have til midnight on Monday to enter.
And my resignation - I am resigned to not being able to get back my pretty floral background so the new Squirrel's World look is clean and simple. Bit like me really, only I'm more on the simple side. Bit of a grubby little Squirrel really. Less said about that the better I think..........
Catch ya all laters! Hugs, Sxx
