Fluffy Red Robin

It may seem strange to be creating Christmas cards in March, but the way 
this year is rushing by it will be December before we know it.

I am on the Fat Cats Card Corner design team, and this card was created to show
the versatility of the Marianne Folding Lace Square die, which I attached to the
card horizontally after removing the back panel of the die-cut. 

As is usual, the brilliant sparkle of the glitter does not show up,
although I took many photos from various angles.

This crazy weather in Australia we are more than 3 weeks into autumn, yet we are still experiencing temps in the mid 30s C., with very 'warm' nights, making sleep difficult. I am so over the heat, and having said that I am off to change into some lighter clothes.

Until next time, thank you for visiting.

Bunches of Happiness

I know I am repeating myself constantly, but WHERE are the months
disappearing to??  Yes, it is time once more for a new challenge at
Words 2 Craft By. Our quote this month is by John Harrigan...
"Happiness held is the seed,
Happiness shared is the flower"
What a lovely thought, and as soon as I received the list of quotes from
our wonderful co-ordinator, Sybrina, I knew I wanted to use this
gorgeous cutie, a digital stamp by Mo Manning.

My card is quite a departure from my usual multi-layered, highly embellished 
offerings. I wanted to feature the fabulous image which is quite detailed.

A closer look at the sweet little poppet. 
As usual, I used my Promarkers.

I used our quote as the sentiment on the card, but I cannot 
remember the name of the font I used.

Colouring - Promarkers
