Friday Blues

Weekend almost here and I have spent this week coughing and spluttering and generally feeling sorry for myself!! Trouble with colds is they make you feel so damned MISERABLE!!! But it has made me feel grot and not feeling like doing much - which explains why the wash bag is full and the ironing pile is untouched for a week.... (no change there then really!)

I was lucky to win a challenge recently and spent the voucher on 3 Kaisercraft stamp sets! So of course, even with the cold I had to stamp.
This fountain stamp is called 'The Lake House'. All the papers are from Raspberry Road's 'Country Picnic' set. Stamped the border stamp round the edges then distressed and used Weathered Wood DI.

Coloured it using Promarkers, adding some Perfect Pearls for the flower centres.
The sentiment was from another of the Kaisercraft sets called 'Enchanted Garden'. Distressed the same then stamped the rose border along the background card, just adding a little blue pearl. 

A few more pearls, a bit more distressing and some broderie lace finished it off! Papers also carried on into the inside.

Challenges -

Time Out - Inspired by Words (Flower)
Butterfly Challenge - Stamping/Sapphire
I Love Promarkers - Bingo (Sentiment/Free/lace)
Passion for Promarkers - Papertastic

Have a great weekend everyone. x

There's a lovely calming feel to your card Viv, maybe the colours. Hope you soon fell better as we need to be on our toes on treehouse duty this coming week.

I hope you feel better soon, new stamps should do it. The flowers on this one are so sweet, twining round the fountain. I love how you have put it all together. I might save it for inspiration. x
It is good to see you at the Butterfly Challenge.

Feeling yuk is no fun but leaving the washing and ironing is a necessity in order to do our crafting. Love this card and can't get my hands on that there stamp nowhere. sold out!! Don't have those raspberry road papers neither . Boo Hoo! Loving the colour combination and you will be entered twice in the challenge as you have included both stamping and the colour sapphire on your card. Hugs Mrs A.

This is just so pretty - love the colours you used. I do like Kaisercraft stamps they have a look all of their own I think.
