Friends Who Laugh....Last!

Too true... and sometimes all you need is a simple little card to celebrate such a friendship. I used water colours to add colour to the card base and added splatters for good measure. Playing with water colour is so much fun! I also have these little bits of patterned paper left that are too small for a card front, but it was perfect for a pop of colour on the card front. A die cut piece of lace adds a little bit of texture and the sentiment strip gives my laughing friends something solid to stand on. A few sequins added the final touch of fun.

The stamps are from the ArtImpressions 'Girlfriends' collection. The image (that never fails to bring a smile to my face) is from the set  'Laughing'  and the sentiment is from 'Comfy on the Couch'

I'm entering this card for the ArtImpressions - One Layer Ladies challenge. There's just a couple days left to enter, so come on over and join us!

With Love Sprinkled on Top...

For once I made a card 'just because' with no particular person or purpose in mind. I should do it more was rather fun

I used a digital image from Tiddly Inks 'Happy Bugg and Extras  I coloured the little 'bug' with coloured pencils and added glitter to her wings and the cup cake. A strip of patterned paper makes the wooden floor for her to stand on.

All in all it was super quick to finish and a great little project to colour when you have itchy-fingers-for-colouring and only a little time to spare.

I did a sort-of imitation of the font on the inside of the card. The sentiment is included with the digital set if you prefer to print it. And some fairy dust ended up scattered all over the inside of the card as well...

A fun and quick card, perfect for colouring on the go!
