Life has been getting in the way of my crafting recently, but I have tried to go with the flow and not get too frustrated about it. I have finally finished this card which has been hanging around on my craft desk for the last week.
I was fortunate to win a prize from the 'Prize Patrol' during Convention which included products from the 'Storybook Suite' that will be coming in the new Catalogue to be released on 1 September 2012 in Australia. The image on the card is an a la carte stamp called 'Life Shared', which reminds me so much of the 'Dick and Dora' readers we got in early primary school. Those of a similiar vintage to myself would hopefully relate to this. I cut off the sentiment from the bottom of the stamp and mounted it on the end of the block so I can easily stamp it where I want to.
It is a nice image to colour and I have tried to keep a 'retro' look in the choice of colours for the image and accompanying card stock.
