Chit Chat


It was supposed to be mainly nice today with the possibility of an odd shower. Well we have had a bit of sun and wind but those occasional showers have been every half an hour or so and very heavy. So I couldn't do the planned gardening and decided to make a card instead and spend a little while blogging before I get ready to go out to dinner and the theatre.

I just love Squiggle stamps and this month their challenges is Birthday Best and the prize is a place on the DT. Chit chat is one of their newest images which I bought recently as I thought it is such a fun image. They are coloured with PMs with added glitter. The papers are Henbury Lane and I punched some flowers out of the same papers and added some punched leaves and gems. The sentiment is from Craftwork Cards and matches the image so well. I rotated the sketch from sweet Sketch Wednesday, Crazy 4 Challenges want paper flowers and Bee Crafty want something pink and girly.

Hi Marianne - the weather I know how awful it is, I can't even step out the door without being blow away. This card does just the trick, bright and cheery and with that lovely beautifully coloured image. Just gorgeous

I hear you about the weather. Surrounding areas have been flooding and have declared a state of emergency. We have been lucky where we live and haven't had any problems.

Such an adorable card. Love the colors and those images are cute!! Thanks so much for playing at SSW.
