Sweet Pea Georgeousness!

Wednesday again already, its the middle of the week. I have to say im feeling very upbeat today no idea why, although receiving these fabulous sweet pea stamps has rather uplifted my spirits.

If you like the look of these Sweet Pea Designs follow this link, and become a follower of their fabulous blog and be in with a chance to win a card by one of the fabulous design team members!

Thank you Jamie for treating me to these ! they are just adorable, and although i was a little worried about the colouring when the first arrived, i have to say they were not as difficult as i thought they would be. Decided to use my aquarelle pencils this time as they are a little more forgiving than my pro-markers.

I used some of the fabulous MME papers that ive been saving, and i just love the finished result. This has taken me the best part of 2 hours today, but it totally absorbed my mind and i feel very relaxed.

Have even got the tea ready tonight in between waiting for the glimmer mist and stickles to dry! Who knows i might even get chance to make another card today.

Please go and look a the fabulous Sweet Pea designs for yourself, there is a link on my sidebar. I feel sure you wont be disappointed.

I have glossy accented the moon, not sure how well you can see it here. The My Love sentiment is an Anna Griffin stamp.

The wings have been stickled as have the flowers that this beauty is holding.

Hearts are the nestability hearts and the edges have been stickled.

Whilst blog hopping earlier, i came across the following challenge blogs that i am entering this card into.

Die Cut Dreams - Red and Black with Love

Papertake Weekly - Love Actually

Crafty Cardmakers - Hearts and Romance

ABC challenge - NEW (using my new stamp)
Quixotic - I believe in Fairies

Love is certainly in the air at the moment ladies. Do you have any special plans for valentines day? We are not big on valentines in this house, maybe just a nice takeaway, anything to save me from cooking at the weekend!

Well my lovelies, off to have another play, hugs for now Linda x

coldwaters2 said...

Oh wow Linda this is awesome your colouring is ace. I have two of these stamps that I have mounted and ready to ink...trouble is I am not sure if I am confident to have a go. I am a follower of theirs and the cards I have seen so far are out of this world but don't think I will match anything like yours.
