Jodie in Dungarees

Well I'm well and truly back to earth with a bump after my holiday, it seems like a distant memory and the heat has disappeared out of my bones completely.

I had my finger nails and toe nails decorated for my holiday (see piccy below), but yesterday I went and had them redone so haven't even got them to remind me anymore! Sniff, sniff........  That wasn't me crying, that was my nose running because of the cold, tee hee.

Anyway back to the cards, that'll banish the holiday blues!  My card today is a reminder for the challenge that's currently running over at A Gem of a Challenge and our theme is "for the girls".  This should be a breeze for everyone as they are so easy to make.  So why not pop over and have a look at my teamies cards and give it a go yourselves?

Materials used:
Coloured with promarkers
Accented with glossy accents
Hand drawn swing for her to sit on
Background brayered with:
Adirondack ink - sunshine yellow, lettuce and stonewashed
Stamp - garden set
Sentiment - Janes Script
Liquid pearls - lavender lace
Embroidery thread for the swing

I'd like to enter my card into the following challenges:

Craft Us Crazy - anything goes
Fab 'n' Funky - no dp
Sweet Stamps - brayered backgrounds
Joanna Sheen - down in the garden
That Craft Place - make you own background

xx Happy crafting and glittery hugs xx

  10. How pretty! I really like how you put the sentiment along the horizon line like that, clever! And the sun is done with a brayer? I have never seen that before, I'm not that good with a brayer, but I think I might have to try that. Thanks for the inspiration!
