Truly Scrumptious.

This is the card I made for my daughter and family who are moving on Friday. I hope they like it. I used the Truly Scrumptious sketch which I love. The papers are some of my favourite MME Bloom and Grow. I watercoloured a download image that I bought from Pink Petticoat. Their downloads are lovely and I bought a few! You get a page of 5 different ones with a sentiment and another without a sentiment. I used my nesties to cut ovals for a separate sentiment and just scribbled "enjoy". I punched out flowers from matching plain green and orange and some small ones from the floral paper. I stickled the clouds and the smoke. I have added beads to the trees and for a door handle as the Truly Scrumptious challenge is a sketch plus beads. The brads and jewels are from my stash.
Juls said she doesn't know if she has a style and I'm not sure I have either. I have particular colours or even just papers that I like but I tend to try to decide if a stamp fits the papers I want to use although sometimes I set my mind on a stamp and then try to find papers that will fit the image. Sometimes the sketch you choose points you to what else you will choose to fit it. Does any of this make sense? I need to do my Sugar Bowl entry now but I am running a bit late as my daughter phoned for what they call in Aberdeenshire " a news" lol. Then I need to find something that will suit a Ruby Wedding Anniversary card. One of my crafting friends is celebrating her anniversary with a barbecue on Sunday. With the kind of weather we have had this last week or so it may have to be an indoor do! Needless to say we are missing this as we are involved in the house move.
I'll go now and make a start on my next card. I really hate full time work. I think lots of people are on holiday up here so I spend most of my day reading the papers, doing sudokus etc and thinking what I could do if I wasn't at work. At least tomorrow is a half day in the Post Office.
