Sweet dreams Edna

Hello lovely people,

Wow, that's another weekend that whizzed by!

We had a friend of Dr. Hubby's visiting and I thought I might get some crafting done while they did 'boy' things and I did a little bit, but I also got sucked into joining them for multiplayer games on the PlayStation 4 quite a lot instead, which was loads of fun :-)

The Ribbon Girl DT are taking a little break from challenges over the Summer but there's a lovely giveaway over on The Ribbon Girl blog at the moment, with this selection of beautiful blue goodies...

Completely coincidentally, I have chosen blue for the card I am sharing today, using some lovely products from The Ribbon Girl of course!

I was especially excited to use my new Denim & Friends paper pad from Maja Design...oooooh, this pad is so packed full of gorgeous patterns and colours :-)

I seem to be having a bit of a love affair with Stamping Bella images at the moment, whether brand new images or slightly older ones like this one.

I hope Edna is having sweet dreams...she does look like it to me :-)

I die cut 4 separate borders to create the frame effect around the image and broke out the Frantage to add to the vintage feel....shhhhh, the Frantage *may* also be covering a few unwanted spots of Copic ink from when I opened a particularly juicy pen right over the image...but you didn't hear it from me, right?!

  1. wow, great card, just shows how versatile the Denm & Friends paper is and the little one asleep in the tea cup is so cute :-)

  2. Gorgeous card, I love the blue papers! Beautiful colouring and framing of the image too x

  3. Really lovely Kat. My paper stash is seriously lacking in blue as it's not a colour I often use but looking at this beauty I could be persuaded otherwise xx
