Pringle

Another card made with a wonderful Sugarnellie stamp Pringle and my favorite papers by A Tanabe called Homespun. I've searched and searched for the download link to them but cant find it- sorry! I hate not giving proper credit or a link to things I've used so if anyone can help me let me know.

Once again I've gone embellishment crazy with buttons bows and flowers, I don't do simple and elegant though so it should be expected!

Now to answer a question from Mar G way back on my March calendar page (sorry for neglecting you for so long) I cut my stamped images out with both a craft knife and scissors, I use a knife for the intricate parts and scissors for the main parts ~ Now all come closer I'm only gonna whisper this little secret once~ when I'm cutting out really intricate bits like tails, antennas etc I cut it a bit larger than it actually is so its not too flimsy and then colour the white that remains with a black pen so you cant see where I've not cut it exactly~ you didn't hear that from me though right!

I love looking at your cards Sarah, you put so much effort and detail into them. Out of interest, how long does an average card take you to make?

Wow Sarah,

yet another fab card, I love they way you embellish. Sometimes I think mine are a bit plain, so think I may have to take a leaf out of you book. Looking forward to your next post.
