Simon Says Stamp - Wednesday Challenge (Entry #2)

It has been the most magnificent day today!! I went off to work this morning in shorts and t-shirt, which is totally unheard of in May. I would usually be rugged up with thermals and gumboots by now. I even thought of breaking out the sunblock as it was so hot on my skin, talk about global warming!!!!!

My mojo and confidence is still absent at the moment, which is so frustrating. When this happens I try and do some colouring to boost my moral. I coloured some images a few nights ago and decided to make a last minute card for the Simon Says Stamp - Wednesday Challenge using an old sketch for inspiration:

I stamped the images from MFT Stamps 'New Best Friend' on white CS, coloured with pencils and then fussy cut out. Using my MISTI I stamped the paw prints (from the same stamp set) over the card front and then adhered the little girl and kitty. 

For the sentiment (also from the same stamp set) I stamped it on white CS and adhered a piece of black CS behind it. I cut around the black CS until it framed the sentiment and popped it up on foam tape. I also added some sequins from Neat and Tangled.

This is the MFT Stamps Challenge Sketch I used to give my mojo a kick in the backside:

Time to start thinking about dinner. Its so strange to be feeling so hot when its dark so early. Its supposed to rain from Sunday onwards so must make the most of the next few days.....

Take care


  1. Cute card Shona - it's still warm here too, but the clouds have built up today...

  2. What a darling card. I don't know why you think your mojo is lacking...I just don't see it. Love the colors and how you found just the right sketch to use.
