Grow a Little Love

Morning All. I have been a bit quiet lately what with School Holidays, decorating and generally keeping the kids amused! But, I have been busy creating though, in fact as a reward for decorating I had a weekend off and spent as much time as I could in my craft room. So with an afternoon of painting ahead of me I thought I would write up a couple blog posts over a leisurely Cuppa….plus I’ve bribed the kids to sit still with a snack ;-)

Now we all know I love cute and this image falls perfectly into that category….it’s Wryn Grow a Little Love by Tiddly InksTiddly Inks are having a DT call at the moment and I couldn’t resist  having a try. The call asked us to use our favourite image but just picking one would have had me dithering for hours so I decided to use the first Tiddly Inks image I ever bought.

I like to have a few ‘Just Because’ type cards in my stash, so I made this little cutie….it’s a favourite card shape for me but I have no idea what’s it’s called….any suggestions are welcome! All the layers have been edged with Walnut stain Distress ink and I have kept the layout fairly simple. I have kept the embellishment simple, just adding handmade flowers – which I tried to match to the shape of the flowers in the patterned paper.
