Dinkum Divas Swap

Well I am just realising that I haven't posted in a while!! (naughty me!!) I have sort of been busy! I have been making up samples for my Technique Day with my ladies in a couple weeks, I have been making lots of cupcakes (cards) and working on Instructions for some cards I made for Craft Factory for Project of the Month.  So busy busy busy. (lol) 

Anyway, yesterday was a training day for the Dinkum Divas, which is the group of Stampin Up ladies I am with.  Unfortunately, due to another of those Thunderclap Headaches I have lost my speech again, though, no way near as severe as last time, but as I still had a rotten headache and, well, couldn't talk very well, I stayed home.  But my gorgeous and ever so lovely hubby went on a little trip and delivered my swaps for me, so the ladies wouldn't miss out!  So this brings me to this card!! The swap was a sketch challenge, which was the Mojo Monday 87 Sketch.  I nearly went with Upsy Daisy!! Good job I didn't as two other ladies used this set.  I decided to go lovey dovey!! I have used the set A Happy Heart. The "hearts & kisses" have been stamped in Chocolate Chip, then I sponged the edges with a Riding Hood Red dauber.  Using a cotton tip I have removed the ink from the centre heart and then using the dauber added the Riding Hood Red ink. I have used the same technique on the I {heart} U stamp also.

Materials Used - Stampin Up! - Stamp Set - A Happy Heart. Cardstock & Inks - Chocolate Chip, Riding Hood Red, Pink Pirouette & Very Vanilla. Accessories - Candy Lane DP, Scallop Edge Punch, Sponge Daubers & Chocolate Chip 1/4" Grosgrain Ribbon

Anyway, I'm off! The Parcel Post guy just arrived!! and we all know what that means!!!

NEW STAMPS!! (hee hee) Tootle Loo!!
