A card and a sneak peak

Hope you're all doing well this lovely Wednesday. We're enjoying the warm weather, it makes such a change from all the rain.

I'm getting a lot of inspiration from other crafters this summer and I've cased a fantastic card from the August issue of the Craft Stamper Magazine. It feels a bit like cheating, but mimicking is a great way to learn....or maybe it's only a lame excuse from me when mojo is lowish, rofl.

I'm entering the Less Is More Challenge who wants to see Button or Ribbon and The ABC Challenge who has Z for Zoo this week.

I used:
A wooden stamp from India
Prima sentiment
MS edge punch
Colorbox inks and chalks (lovely inks, but can't recommend the Cat's Eyes, the ink pads easily falls off)

And now the sneak peak:

I'm honoured to say that the sweet Cupcakes have invited me to their team. The excitement has been quite overwhelming and I've enjoyed it thoroughly. Many thanks for having me!!!

The pic shows a part of a creation I've made for next weeks challenge, just had to add a cupcake! You'll see the entire project on Monday.

  17. Maarit, there is nothing wrong with 'borrowing' an idea from a magazine; after all they are there to inspire us.
