Hello fellow bloggers!
It's Sunday again...how does the week go so fast? How come I never have enough time to enter all those pesky challenges out there? I thought I'd sneak in a quickie (card that is) before the clock stops ticking over at Casology. This week the cue word is orange.
Now I love orange but didn't have anything in my stash that screamed orange to me - either in terms of fruit or colour. And then what happens to fall on my doorstep but a fabulous prize that I won through Moxie Fab World a couple of weeks ago, purely for making a comment. Don't you just love that? A prize for doing virtually nothing! (And since there were about 285 comments I appreciate I was very lucky!) In this lovely Studio Calico card kit was the perfect shade of orange card with the perfect little packet of orange sticker dots and a speech bubble stamp....
I embossed the stamp on to the orange card and added a little twine and button, together with some faux stitching. I also cut a circle which I embossed using a striped embossing folder from Stampin Up. I embossed it twice, in different directions so I ended up with checks, not stripes. I cut a slit in it and added the banner and then added a few of the dots. It took me about 10 minutes - can you tell?
Hope you have a great Sunday and thanks for any comments...they truly make my day!
