how thrilled was I? Very! Not only did he bring me my gorgeous new Sugar Nellie stamps but also my Quick Cards Made Easy magazine which I appear in not once but twice hehe...!!
I couldn't wait for Matthew to cut me some blocks so stuck one of my new stamps onto an old one and stamped away!! He's going to be busy in the shed tonight, I've got a long list of measurements for blocks I want cutting!! It was a hard choice deciding which one to use first but I went for my Sweet Art Ebony 'mail box' of it's sooo... scrummy! I coloured the image with my watercolours and pearl watercolours and added glitter to the spots on her hat and ribbon for that extra bit of sparkle! It's the first outing for my swiss dots embossing folder, it was one of those 'must have's' I've had it at least a month, can you believe that!?!
Here is my completed card
Here is the card I mentioned yesterday, it is my entry for the Penny Black challenge this week which was to use the sketch supplied. I am so happy with this card I just love the yellow and orange together, I used my pearl water colours on the balloons and pressie which give them a nice sparkle!
