Happy Friday all hope the sun shines upon you all again at some point today, unless you are really desperate for rain of course.
Today I have an anything card as depending on what sentiment I add I think I could use it for quite a few occasions. I used my 3rd house mouse stamp that I treated myself to when I bought Martini mouse to make hubby's birthday card well it meant I didn't pay p+p so made them cheaper my excuse anyway. I just think this wee one is so cute and I love daisies so even better.
I coloured the image with promarkers and used a die cut oval to cut it out. The scrap of card I stamped it on wasn't quite long enough to fit the whole oval on but a happy accident as I actually quite like the two flat ends as I think it makes it look just that little bit different.
The base card is white and I used some squares of ready cut papers that came in a scrap-booking set from one of the TV craft channels not sure which as I've had it quite a few years and am down to odd bits from the set. I simply cut them to size to make a patchwork effect and it reminds me of a thick winter bed-quilt that you could snuggle under and instantly feel warm particularly with the rich colours,though that wasn't intentional either just the squares I chose randomly.
I wanted to add something but wasn't sure what as it didn't quite look finished, I did contemplate adding stitching to the squares to look like over-sewing but decided that might make it look too busy , so I opted for adding some cross stitch around the image using a purple sakura gel pen.
