There's always something to be grateful for. For example - at the moment I am pitifully thankful that Beloved is reading kids the bedtime story and I was able to make myself a nice hefty mug of frothy latte. Curled up in an armchair with my laptop and typing away.
The challenge for next two weeks at 7 Kids College Fund Challenge is a project to say "thank you". As long as you use a stamp from 7KCF you'll be free to create whatever you wish. And the choice is wide - Magnolias, Kraftin Kimmies, Penny Black, Stampavie, C.C. Designs, Whiff of Joy - I could just keep counting!
And you better try to play along because a prize is 75.- USD voucher for 7KCF store this time. Just THINK of all the goodness you can buy with THAT!!
My card today is featuring a sweet Tilda blowing fairy dust. She is from Fairytale collection - which happen to LOVE!!
Colouring is all Copics - I made a mistake with that because she was stamped on softer-than-usual card stock and I fought a lot of bleeding. If you want to use a similar technique that requires a lot of soaking of the paper, you will be better off with Xpress-It cardstock or something alike.
I added a bit of Stickles to the image and kept the card pretty simple. The papers are from Cosmo Cricket Material Girl 6x6 pad, all sponged with Scattered Straw and Pumice Stone distress inks. A nice gingham bow, button, twine and some dew drops. Simple and sweet. And of course took me ages.
