My Perfect Buddy

Good morning everyone,

I hope you are having a good week. I am so enjoying mine although I haven't crafted as much as I had planned. I have been out on my bike and for walks almost everyday. Today I am taking my friend to the Art of Craft shop in Farnborough, as the 'Make It' show that we normally attend isn't on this year. We plan to have a crafty spend followed by a girly lunch out.

I am sharing a card that I made using A Dreamerland Crafts stamp. OMG, I am so in love with this stamp. This little cutie is called 'My Perfect Buddy'. I have coloured it with a mixture of distress reinkers and watercolour paints.

The scene of mountains and the little fence I drew myself.

The shape of the card has been made with a Crealies circle die.

The papers are by Maja and I've edged them with white gesso.

Peeping out at the top is Marianne die.

The daisy flower, pearl trim and flat lace are from the  Ribbon Girl. They haven't got any of the 15 cm Lilac Organza ribbon, however, they do have it in 23 and 38mm.

Di list:
Skin: Vintage Photo, Tattered Rose, Worn Lipstick
Hair: Walnut Stain, Antique Linen
Hat, Mittens and Scarf: Hickory Smoke, Black Soot
Coat and Boots:Weathered Wood, Black Soot
Walnut Stain, Worn Lipstick, Hickory Smoke, Black Soot
Fence: Gathered Twigs

Mountains and Sky - various watercolour paints.

Well that's all from me today.

Have a good day whatever you are doing.

Thank you for popping in.
