Hugs to you!

This is such a cozy stamp, she is so sweet with her big sweater trying to stay warm with a hot cuppa. I thought about stitch on the patches but decided to tear instead. The challenge is a sketch from A spoon full of Sugar and since I used a WOJ stamp, I will entry their challenge, Blings on your card. I painted the blings with my RV19 copic pen to match the coloring of the image.

Sweet Hello with Mimosa!

This is one of my new stamps from Bildmalarna, Mimosa with cupcakes! At ABC challenges they wanted us to make a card with circles, so I used one of my blog friends Vee's sketch, you find more wonderful sketches at Vee's Sketch Pad, click here! OK, going to be honest, I sewed on the Sweet Hello tag in the wrong place, but when I was about to glue all on to the cardstock, I accidentally turned it around, and it looked better, then I placed Mimosa! Now cupcakes are not my favorites, see the blue on, how can you like them,LOL!!

Be happy!

Thank you so much for all the wonderful comments you are giving me, especially on the last card. I just loved to color that one, my cup of tea! This card I had fun with, painting this image from Hänglar&Stänglar and make the spots match the paper! But I didn't want to overdo it so I let the spots do the work. I used a sketch from Stamp with Fun, challenge no 20.
