You are so loved...

Hi everyone,

just wanted to share a cute and simple card I made for the April challenge over at make the day special.  It is the most amazing online shop selling rare and hard to get stamps from the USA.  I LOVE IT!  Can't say the same for my bank balance but, meh, enjoy it while you can I say (to myself.  all the time.  I kinda have to.  It's that or admit I've got a problem haha).

I used Mama elephant's 'love from above'...soooo cute.  See, this is the problem, how can you look at a stamp set like this and not need to have it in your life!  I just have no will power to say no!

So here it is...


I coloured the little cherub in using distress inks as watercolours.  I can't tell you how obssessed with this technique I am at the moment.  I think it's great how we fall back in love with techniques and effects, you get to have fun with them all over again...and again :)

So a very simple card, watercoloured image with a little tag of ribbon and a few punched out hearts.

Hope you like it, please feel free to leave a comment.
