Darby & Penelope

13 Jun

Hi there, I hope you are all having a wonderful weekend. We have a long weekend here in Australia which I love. It is nice knowing that there is no saturday morning sports or going through the morning routine for school and to be able to doing things at a lazy pace.

Yesterday Michael worked so after spending most of the day cleaning I decided to sit down and make a card. It is my gorgeous friend Kirsty’s daughter birthday next week so I sat down to make her a card. I looked for sketches and although there are plenty of great ones out there none of them were pulling me in so I decided to think outside the box and come up with my own. I have to say that I am quite happy with the layout of this card.

I wanted to use the Darby & Penelope stamp as I can imagine Elizabeth and Kira sitting on a fence of wall and having a good yarn like a couple of old ladies! They have known each other since they were born (Kirsty and I met through mothers group) and although they may not see each other all the time when they do it is never strained.

I am going to enter this into’s this weeks challenges for:

Anya Ink – Button & Bows

All That Scraps Challenges – Buttons & Ribbons

Stamp Something – Happy something (I think the image symbolises happiness)

I have used Darby & Penelope Stamp from CC Designs, kaisercraft ribbon, lace, kaisercraft pearls, October Afternoon Paper, sprays from spotlight, button from stash and spellbinders Labels Nine.

I have a couple of hours now till we need to go out again so will see if can get a sketch challenge in.

Thanks for stopping by, until next time xoxo
