Perfectly pink

Friday again and I won't say "at last" because I have had a good week. It's been "normal", no holiday cover at work which has meant the family (human and animal kind) and garden have not been neglected!! I even managed a just for fun card to share and here it is....


The card of choice this time is a stepper. The papers were magazine freebies and the sweet stamp is a little Nellie Snellen and coloured with Pro/Flexmarkers. I got out my neglected Marianne dies and actually hand stitched with anchor thread for a change. 

Here's where the inspiration came from...

  8. What a very girly card Sarah, love it. I have that stamp lurking in my NBUS pile, must dust it off and give it some air!
    Watched Max round the sheep up yesterday evening for the first time. For a little dog he certainly goes for it and really enjoys it. He may just be the smallest sheepdog ever!

  24. Sarah, what a perfect die for this particular sweet image. Love the handstitching you did on the die & border - never thought to try that, but it's very pretty. Love too, the stepper card (another one of my challenge issues is card folds!). This is just darling in the pinks. Yay for you on getting to the fair. If you speak with MC, please tell him he has a devoted follower in SC, USA! We are watching the old series over & over, still laughing at lots. I was so pleased to hear 2015 will bring another series, but hope the writers will go back to the vulnerability he had in the early days (yes, I've read it is MC's decision to take him darker)..but I surely hope this won't be the last series. With a toddler, they have all kinds of plot lines that would be so funny in MC's capable hands. Enjoy the fair. Wish I could be with you. Hugs & TFS
