Take it slow

Hello lovely people,

Ooooh, has that been a whole week since I last posted?!

I had a little jaunt to Norfolk from Friday - Monday with the Caterham 7 car club and we had so much fun whizzing around in our cars, eating lots of yummy food and generally having a giggle...especially when we got lost!
It was gorgeously sunny the whole time so that was an extra special treat when you are in an open top car!

Then I have been at Bath University for the past 2 days for the first 2 study days of my prescribing course and boy, I now realise what I have let myself in for!
It was great to meet all the other students though and we got to have a play at taking blood pressures on the simulation arm which was fun :-)

Moving on from my little update and we have a new challenge for you at In The Pink with the theme...

1-2-3

So, we want to see 1 of something, 2 of something and...yes, you guessed it...3 of something on your project.
With more pink than any other colour of course!

Our wonderful sponsor this time is The Ribbon Girl with a £10 voucher
The recipe for my design is;
1 image
2 flower clusters and 2 bows
3 DPs

And I think it turned out pretty tasty!

Pink and girly card featuring Sally and her snail by Stamping Bella

It was love at first sight for me and this stamp, so it was only a matter of time before I bought it, and already I can't wait to colour her again!

There is something so joyful about this image :-)

Pink and girly card featuring Sally and her snail by Stamping Bella

After I added the top photo I realised the flower charm was a little wonky because the card was lying flat for the photo but it does dangle freely IRL as you can see here!

I bought this stamp too, but I've not done it the justice that you have. I love your colouring Kat. Fab card.
Sounds like you've been busy. I am jealous that you're free of work, but not sure I'd like to go back to uni again. Once was enough!

This is so super cute! Great coloring! Thanks so much for playing along with the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge!

Sue said...

Kat, this card is truly amazing. The image is sweet I agree, but it is your exquisite colouring that brings it to life. Your card design is so beautiful with your stitching and addition of those pretty flower clusters. This is a really brilliant take on the 1 - 2 - 3 theme -. You have put everything together so thoughtfully and perfectly and i really love it.
So lovely to hear of your adventures too!

Good morning Kat - still playing catch up with all my lovely crafty friends since the wedding last week and having my little visitor to stay whilst Mum & Dad are on Honeymoon.
You have some gorgeous makes since my last visit and this is no exception.
Adorable image coloured so perfectly - you have really brought this little cutie to life.
Sounds like you have had a busy but enjoyable time.
Hope it went well at Uni - you will be brilliant for sure.
Looks like a miserable day weather wise so that's a good reason to stay inside and catch up and then a little playtime in my little crafty haven - I have missed it so much lol!!!
Have a fabulous day.
Debs xx
