Hi friends and followers!
Id like to showcase a card I made for my mother to give away today. They are invited to celebrate their best friends 60th birthday this weekend. Since his wife is giving him a romantic getaway to Paris my mother thought it would be fun to give him a Paris themed card. I don't own the Eiffel tower stamp from Magnolia and therefor I wanted to buy it but theres something wrong with the Magnolia webshop so I wasn't able too...:( Browsed the internet for a store that stocks it here in Sweden (I needed it kind of fast ;)) but it was nowhere to be found! :( Im part of a group of girls that gets togheter about once a month to get our creative juices running so I asked them if someone had it but no..however a friend of mine reminded me I could use dies! So I did! That way I could fit both a suitcase and the Eiffel tower on there! YAY! I´m not totally satisfied with the way it turned out though as I had something completely different in mind ;) But this will have to do! I must admit I always find it much harder to create cards for men...:o It just doesn't bring me that same flow and I never really know which colors to use or what to put on there and the always come out looking..well...not quit like something I would do? Or what do you think?
I followed the gorgeous sketch over at Midweek Magnolias. Its always a pure joy to contribute to their challenges, they are a group of fun loving and very talented ladies. Heres what it looks like:
The lushious sketch is made by Becky, thank you! I had so much fun using it :)
I decided to once again dust off this gorgeous little Edwin stamp, I bought it so many years ago but its one of my absolute fav Edwins ;) He is so cute and very festive! He's also very versitale and you gotta love that in a stamp right? He is inked with my di´s on Langton watercoloring paper 300 g.
Thank you so much for checking in with me today!
It brings the biggest smile to my face :)
Big hugs, see you in your blogs ;)
