In The Garden

This another Alota stamp that I got from Dies to Die for last week, isn't she cute?! I stamped the her out and coloured her in with Copic markers, mounted to mauve CS and added to base with 3D foam pads. The base has been made by layering up mauve CS on to a white card blank with the top panel run through my Cuttlebug using the Swiss Dots embossing folder and ribbon wrapped around. Prima flower added with a Dew Drop to finish.

STAMPS: Alota Stamps. Ink: Airondack Pitch Black. CS: Anta's, Bazzill Basics. ACCESSORIES: Swiss Dots embossing folder, ribbon from Tesco, Dew drop, Copic markers.

On a personal note, I received a call from my brother this morning to say my Sister In Law was in labour 10 days early! Lets hope I will be an auntie before the end of the evening!! :0) I start work tomorrow too as a Health Care Assistant (hopefully transfering to Staff Nurse when my results come through - cross your fingers!)
