Sweet Dreams


Hi everyone,


How has your weekend been?  It has been a little busy here but we did have lovely “Christmas in July” themed dinner on Saturday night. 


A nice hot dinner at this time of the year seems fine to me although it has not been too cold and we had a little sun, so a bonus!


We have a BINGO challenge at Come and Get It this week and the challenge is also sponsored by Bugaboo, so prizes as well!


I have had a great time creating this challenge and my Bingo choices are Gem/Free Choice/Lace.


I do not normally use Lace on my cards but I love the added texture it gave to my card and my Free Choice is some Punched Flowers and Die Cut Swirls.


I have had a great time working with colouring the image, which again is something that I want to practice more.


The colour inspiration at Play Date Cafe has inspired the colours that I have used:


Blushing Bride, So Saffron, Certainly Celery and Calypso Coral with some Whisper White for the neutral card stock.


Here is my card:






Stamp set: Loving Thoughts, Bugaboo Brat Jesse Moon

Card: Blushing Bride, Whisper White, Copic Paper 
Ink: Blushing Bride, So Saffron, Calypso Coral, Certainly Celery, Going Gray (retired)

Accessories:  1-3/4” (4.4 cm) Scallop Circle Extra Punch, Lace (non SU), Circle Ice Rhinestone Brads (Green), Boho Blossoms Punch, Aqua Pen, Modern Label Punch, Swirls Scribbles Die, Corner Punch, Dimensionals, SNAIL Adhesive



In case you are wondering the sentiment is from the Loving Thoughts stamp set.


Don’t you think she looks very peaceful!  Need a little more inspiration please pop over the our Blog and see what other wonderful creations my fellow Design Team Members have created.


I would also like to submit this card into the following challenges:

Wow what a gorgeous card. The image is adorable and the few select colours use makes it perfect to go with the beautiful pastel background colour and the white. Is a very adorable but classy card. Well done :-)
Hope to see you enter many more of our challenges in the future.
