The Fresh Batch etc

I seem to be taking ages to make cards at the moment - I sit in my craft room staring at papers, cutting things to size and then changing my mind, cutting something else and changing my mind again.... finally managed to finish something though! I've finished my Crafty Cardmakers DT card too, but I can't upload that one until tomorrow.

Anyway, this one is for the following challenges:

The stamp is a Sugar Nellie, coloured with promarkers - I've cut it out and then stuck it (with foam pads) onto a nestie circle, which I've embossed with the cuttlebug divine swirls embossing folder, sanded back and then stuck on some flat backed pearls.

The paper is MME 'bloom & grow' which I seem to use on nearly every card at the moment! I've edged the paper with distress ink in 'shabby shutters', cardstock is coredinations. The orange spotty ribbon is from Hobbycraft, and as I'm hopeless at making 'real' bows, I've faked them.

I've not put a sentiment on yet, but I think I'll use this one for MIL's birthday in a few weeks.

  2. I love it too, I had the same thing today, sat in my craftroom for so long just faffing about and not making anything I was pleased with. Hopefully it was just a bug for today and normal service will resume tomorrow!

  7. I was the same yesterday trying to choose papers for an Autumn themed card. Couldn't make up my mind, then I turned to my favourite papers - that's right bloom and grow and everything just fell into place. I can sometimes footer about for ages trying to choose papers or a stamp. Maybe I should explain that footering is a good Scottish word and means much the same as faffing lol!!
    So you see just turn to your favourite papers and everything is ok. This is a lovely card. Really cheerful colours and beautifully coloured. Great number of challenges too.
