Celebrate today


Morning everyone. Oh it is going to be a wonderful sunny day here in Melbourne but I think still cold outside. Hope the weather is good for you all.

I started doing this card for Mojo Monday 94 and this image not thinking that it may turn out a little masculine but I am in love with it. I love the SU Sweet Slumber Speciality DSP and even though they are very much boy colours I really do like the way it turned out. I also combined A Spoon Full of Sugar with a challenge to use 'Hearts' on your card. I didn't realize that the overalls on this Hanglar stamp had hearts on the fasteners so I chucked a couple of hearts on the card as it looked really bare without it. I sanded the edges of the hearts to give them more dimension. Hope you like.

Products: Hanglar stamp; SU Baja Breeze card; SU Sweet Slumber speciality DSP & Washington Apple DSP; MME button; American Crafts hearts; SU Sweet Celebrations stamp set; Embroidary thread; sewing maching.
