Forgotten Friday 29

Goodness don't the Fridays come around quickly - I swear someone has seriously shortened all my days but I wish they'd asked my permission first.  Anyway I've managed to make a card for Judith's Forgotten Friday challenge using a stamp from Cuddly Buddly which I used quite a lot when I first bought it but can't say she's seen the light of day for some months now.  I fished her out to get back into the swing of colouring using alcohol based markers because if I don't keep practising I find my colouring suffers.  A mix of Flex, Promarkers and Copics were used to get the colours I wanted and the image was cut using a Nestabilities label, then mounted onto a Sizzix die cut shape from Stampin Up.  The buttons were cut using another Sizzix die (SU).  Background paper is from my stash - stamped around the edge using a faux stitch stamp (Chocolate Baroque).  The paper and also the ribbon have been in my stash for ages so they qualify as well - the greeting was a free download popped onto Cuttlebug die cut shapes.


  1. She's a real cutie Val...I have this little lady stashed away somewhere! Love your colouring of her and your button die looks great.


  2. Great colouring Val, I know what you mean about needing to keep practising with markers. I soon get rusty with my Copics. Love the bright and cheery colour scheme that you have picked here. Thanks for joining in FF again this week, Judith xx

  3. I love the look of those buttons. Your soft pastel colours are very effective too, especially with the yellow accenting. I know what you mean about keeping practising - wonder if I'll remember how to make a card when I finally get round to it again. My week got stolen too - that time stealing imp is gadding about rather at present. Have a good weekend.
