I have sold 105 cards for Japan Red cross so far... yippeeeeeee!!!


Hello, my lovely, cheerful, motivating, loving and encouraging bloggers,

I am still unable to comment on some of fave blogs... Google - uuuurghh! Never mind, I hope things get better.

I have managed to sell 105 cards so far and now I must put a stop till I get my next batch ready...

Now to this card - I managed to sell it - yippee!!! For USD 3.5!

I have used  a Hero Arts stamp on this card which has been coloured by Zeenya using Darwent water colour pencils in those good ol' days when she used to take interest in crafting... no longer, though!!! Sob, sob, sob!

The edges of the paper on which the image is stamped have been distressed with Wild Honey while the brick background is new gift wrap.

The woollen yarn at the bottom is what I bought when we went to Singapore a while ago.

The flowers are home made with flower punches from Carla craft and I have added a blob of 3D pop up fabric glue to their centres. I distressed and crushed the paper before punching out the flowers.

The sentiment is hand written on that little tablet which was sent to me by Shirley-Anne.

Hope you like it... I have used this stamp earlier but it is always a hot favourite for some reason. I do like it, I have to say.

Hugs,

Monica
