Cute Card Thursday - Outdoors; and Docrafts PB Challenge
Having only just started blogging last week, my first ever non-blog challenge was the Docrafts PB alphabet challenge set by Samantha, which is just finishing this week. I'm also now wanting to join in some new blog challenges and have gotten a bit behind, so I have made a card that I hope fits both the PB "Y" challenge (for yellow) and this week's Cute Card Thursday "Outdoors" challenge.
Now I hear you say that the outdoors link is a little tenuous, but I hope you'll agree it's obvious on closer inspection: hedgy has obviously just picked "a pocketful of posies" from the "flower garden border" LOL!
The main image stamp is Penny Black "A Tender Hug" coloured with watercolour pencils and decorated with papermania adhesive stones; the background paper is from the DCWV "Pocketful of Posies" stack punched into a circle using the Papermania "Flower Garden" multishaper punch. The sentiment stamp was free with a craft mag; flowers are by Prima, sticky ribbon by Anita's, and the sparkly yellow and gem brads are by Making Memories.
My name is Pauline, and I have been cardmaking since 2006. I started my cardmaking blog in 2008, to showcase my addiction to stamping and all things pretty - I can spend hours footling around matching up papers, ribbons and embellishments!! I have been on a number of card blog design teams, but am currently taking a step back due to various other commitments. During 2013 I discovered the joy of baking, and for 2014 have started a new baking blog to chart my progress and also include a charity element. I only wish I had more time to devote to these hobbies ... but I have to work full time as a project manager to help pay for my baking ingredients and crafty stash!!
