Sweet Stampin' ~ Cute & Cuddly

Hey there my lovely blog buddies. It's been a silly week, as I mentioned on my last post. So I'm flying in quickly with my DT make for Sweet Stampin' tonight. As you know, you must 'stamp' to enter our challenges, so I do love to use my rubber stamps whenever possible for my DT makes and I picked up this cute Stamping Bella chick recently with this fabulous sentiment too and just knew I had to use it for my best bud in Sweden. 

      (sorry about the wonky angle - held up to the Sun to catch the daisy sparkle)
   
I sent my Swedish pal this card recently with all the family news in it. Needless to say, I had to add several additional pages! I do love snail mail, it's still my favourite way to communicate with my pals abroad. There's just something special about an actual letter you can hold and even nicer with a sweet handmade card! I just think this wee chick is super cute and with that sentiment, it quite stole my heart!

                 
I kept the design very CAS and used some digital paper from Pixel Scrapper as the background. It's from the Strawberry Fields set by Janet Scott. I've coloured the image with my Promarkers and added a touch of Wink of Stella to the centre of the daisy. A few distressed edges, a simple yellow bakers twine wrap to finish et voila. 


Come on over to Sweet Stampin' to join in our 'Cute & Cuddly' challenge. I'd love to see what you create. I'll be back again when time allows. Things are about to get a whole lot crazier at mine for a little bit, so I'm not sure how often I'll be able to check in over the next few weeks. But fingers crossed I won't be too knackered in the evenings to check in with you all. Thanks for all the lovely messages you leave me, I don't say it very often, but they always TOTALLY make my day. Big hugs to you all, Wends xoxo

This is 100% going to put a big smile on your friend's face because I know it did on mine and that's just seeing it on a computer screen! The combination of bright colours and that super cute image make this so totally cheerful and I adore it :-)
I LOVE that image and I am actually slightly amazed that it hasn't fallen in my basket yet!
The sunny twine is the perfect finishing touch...another brilliant CAS design Wends :-)
I hope you find a little 'me time' over the next week! I always appreciate that you take the time to leave such lovely comments on my blog and they always brighten my day.
Big hugs, Kat xx
