Proudest Mum Moment !
Good Sunday Morning Ladies,
From a very cold Wiltshire, my goodness I need to under a heat lamp I think.
We had the most amazing Saturday, we took Sophie to deliver her painting to the Wildlife Park, she asked Lucy to meet her in the carpark to help her carry it in, I think she just wanted lucy with her, although she was paranoid that she was going to damage or drop it! As soon as we got to the restaurant where the painting will be displayed people slowly started to gather, the friends and colleagues, were all amazed the best reaction came from the park owner, you could see that he was visibly shocked and initially speechless he then pointed out every bit of detail, he was amazed that this was Sophie's first attempt at oil painting, it was so lovely to sit back and watch her talking everyone through it, at the same time I could tell that both of them were struggling mentally being the centre of attention, Lucy soon made her excuses and disappeared back to her kiosk! We eventually left the restaurant and had a walk around the park, I wanted to see all of the animals that featured in the painting, the Giraffes were busy eating, the Rhinos were having a lazy morning, just laying around their paddock, something was bothering the Lion though as he was roaring like crazy, which was amazing to witness, we then stopped by Lucy's kiosk and had the most delicious hot waffle topped with whippy ice ream, biscoff crumb and caramel sauce with a little whipped cream, very naughty but VERY nice, Paul had sliced banana and caramel sauce with ice cream! We wandered back to the car as we had been there a good four hours and I was so cold, I had to get under the duvet with a hot water bottle when we got home. I wouldn't have missed that experience for the world though.
Now lets see what you have been creating.....
Your Challenge Projects
Lilian has used the StampinUp! Elements of Style stamp set to create this gorgeous card.
Such a beautiful card Lilian, the silver gilding in the background gives a touch of luxury, the focal piece is beautifully coloured in a way that lets the beauty of the stamp stand out. That blue is so lovely, with the little touch of green for the leaves, it stands out perfectly on the white card. Thank you so much for a very inspirational card XXX
Here’s 2 cards I used Daisy B stamps which I hadn’t tried yet
Card 1: Very simply stamped onto Kraft card The poinsettia is coloured red and his antlers are highlighted with gold glitter
card 2: Stamped onto white card and coloured in with chalk pencils and ordinary pencils First time I’ve tried to “shadow” with pencil and smudge with a paper stump.
Karen I absolutely love this Daisy B stamp, you really need nothing more than the stag simply stamped and coloured, it is such a beautiful design, both cards look amazing but I think you see more detail on the white card, that corner stamp is so pretty too.
Thank you so much for two lovely cards for this weeks challenge XXX
I’ve chosen Tracey Hey as my brand this week and have used various stamps from different collections 😊
