Up up and away!

A super quick post from me today, I started with a migraine yesterday and can’t shift it at all and looking at the computer screen just don’t work with a migraine.  It’s Lili’s Little Fairies challenge day and this week the theme is Transport.

The fab clouds paper is by Bildmalarna, how perfect for this LOTV Patchwork Hot Air Balloon stamp! A few star die cuts, a banner, some ribbon and buttons and job done.  I really struggle with making male cards but found this one super easy to do.  These patchwork bears are going to be my “Go To” stamps for male cards I think.

The stamp was coloured with copics and a lot of dark grey and black pencil to give a heavy shaded look.

  2. Hope the migraine shifts soon Bev. This is a great male card and I love the details . I think we all struggle a bit with men's cards as they don't quite look right with a bouquet of flowers - lol! Take care

  40. Bev, I know this image is going to be a favorite! It is adorable, and you made it just so dreamy...even with a migraine (so sorry you are hurting.) I love the cloud paper, and the ribbon is beautiful! Your coloring is great! This could easily be for a girl or boy, by switching up the colors!

    He IS Able!
