Love To Craft Midway Reminder

Can you believe we are half way through May already! Time certainly does seem to be speeding up these days. I cannot believe that my eldest daughter is 30 (how did that happen!) and my youngest brother is 50. My sample for Love to Craft is the card I made for him. His wife has been on a cooking course and has been making the most amazing sweet dishes which is good for  my brother as he has a sweet tooth. I thought a donut card would be just the thing, little did I know that as a result  of all the wonderful home baking he has been on a diet. Oh well at least these donuts are fat free!


Materials used:
Bugaboo Digistamps – Clown 5 and Clown 0 (I cannot find these in the store so they may have been retired)
green and yellow card
X-Press It card
A5 white card blank
Copic pens

The clowns are positioned on the page and printed out on X-Press It card. The image is coloured with Copics then trimmed to size before being matted and layered onto yellow and green card.
Finally the topper is attached to the card blank.

The greeting inside said:

About Pippa

I started crafting at an early age though not always successfully, my pillowcase tennis dress has, thankfully, disappeared into history. Funnily sewing is not something I enjoy! My favourite crafty activity has to be card making, especially stamping which I have been doing for over 20 years and am still a beginner, there is always something new to learn. I also enjoy knitting and crochet. I am not an artist, cannot even draw a straight line with a ruler, but I love colouring in, which is why stamping appeals so much. I am married, have recently retired from being a part time HLTA at a local village primary school, have two grown up daughters, both married and a mad cat called Finnegan. That, in a nutshell, is me.
