Messy Little one

Hello there! Good morning to you! I wonder how many of you were as cross as me last night? I was trying very hard to book a workshop ticket at Art from the heart for the Tim workshops in September but if you were trying too you'll know that the website crashed within two minutes! no real surprise there then! I hope things get sorted out soon so I can have another try!!!

Anyway - life goes on and I have a card to share today for a swap - the theme was welcome little one and this is my take on it!

I had fun making this with some of the new distress oxide colours. I used picked raspberry and seedless preserves and also wild honey I think! The pram was cut from the edges of my background card where I hadn't got much colour.

Stamp is Tim holtz part of the blueprint range!

Have a great Tuesday - we're off to Fellfoot park. Looking forward to it!

Big hugs

  12. Two minutes? 45 seconds from where I was in the US! And I had a ticket in my basket at the time too. Gave up in high dudgeon, and then decided I should probably finish the online Creative Chemistry classes before complaining too much!! Love the splish splash inkiness of this - might as well prepare the parents in advance for the messiness to come!
