Happy Monday everybody! I hope you had a lovely weekend and that you managed to squeeze in some crafting time as well. I had so much fun. My sweetie and I went on a one day trip on Saturday - we visited one of the old cities here. Even though we've been there before, we never knew there were ruins of a Hercule's temple. We visited those on Saturday (among other things). It's not too far from the city center and the day was perfect for walking around (sunny and warm).
Yesterday we just stayed at home and relaxed a bit. It felt good! ;)
I did get some crafting time the other day and the card I'm about to show you is the result.
A bright and sunny card. :) This was made for a special lady's birthday. But shhhh, don't tell her. ;) I finally got to use this adorable image by Mo Manning. Isn't it just too cute?! My printer is hungry again so the image didn't print out perfectly, but it wasn't SO bad either, so I was still able to use the image. But I need to remember to buy a new cartidge. Anyways, I was speaking about the image ... I coloured it with Faber Castell pencils and added some glitters on the wings. All of the papers, flowers, doilies, pearls and crystals came from my stash. On a piece of yellow paper behind the image I stamped with Faded text background stamp from Stampabilities. The lace is from Crafty ribbons. Unfortunately this colour seems to be out of stock, but there are several other colours you can choose from - and they are all fab. I cut the ovals out with Spellbinders dies and I did the embossing with the mpress and Anna Griffin embossing folders. The swirls are a part of one Marianne design die. The butterflies were made with my craft punch.
I hope your weekend will be wonderful.
