Friday again

Where on earth did the week go?

Spent a lot of time on family matters this week so it was a relief to be able to sit down at my desk to make a card this morning. I was expecting to be doing a craft fair tomorrow so intended to spend today sorting all my stock - cards, stained glass and jewelery, but had a call to say it was canceled because of all the snow we still have on the ground here, I'm disappointed as I was counting on making a little bit of money and now have nowhere to sell all the Mother's Day and Easter cards I've been working on. Anyway as I said, I managed to get a card done this morning and I think this will be for my own mother who is having some issues with her health at the moment.

I decided to follow the colour combo at Mo's Digital Pencil challenge which is Blue, Brown and a neutral (white or cream) - had no blue patterned paper so used one of my Stampin Up rollers to create a pattern on some plain blue, I used Whisper White ink and the Forever Flowers border wheel. The brown paper was again a plain one so I stamped a couple of swirls to add a bit of interest to it. The image is, of course, one of Mo's - AM Sweet Tooth - which I coloured with the trusty Promarkers. To embellish I used several blue blooms which came from various places, and I finished it off with a stamped sentiment which was much too big for the card but I stamped it onto shrink plastic and shrunk it with my heat tool to make it fit better.
