Simple silhouette

Yay for Fridays!  It's such beautiful weather here at the moment that I can't help having a little bounce in my step today.  If it weren't for all the pollen and my horrible allergies I'd be a really really happy camper!

I have a quick and simple little card to share with you today using another silhouette... Making a card for the challenge at Little Miss Muffet Stamps that started yesterday inspired me to break out one of my uninked Craft's Meow silhouette stamps that I have had for ages!

I am using some new button thread that arrived from The Ribbon Girl earlier this week as my top thread ... and as you can see, I haven't quite got the tension right yet, but I love the look of the thicker stitching.

Speaking of The Ribbon Girl, look at what was in my lovely package!   

Ah joy!  I wonder why pretty colours make me happy?  I love they way the girls at The Ribbon Girl package everything up so nicely.  The whole pile came wrapped in pink tissue paper.  

Anyway, back to the card... I added some Glamour Glaze to the sweet fairy's wings and Stickles to her dandelion...

Such simple little card!  I'm thinking a bunch of these in different colour schemes in a little box would make a great gift!  The papers I have used are from My Mind's Eye and American Crafts.  The seam binding ribbon is from The Ribbon Girl and the sentiment is a rub on from Pebbles.

I actually made this card to include with some chocolates that my husband wanted me to get for him to give to the boss's PA to say thank you for all the extra work she is doing for us while we are in the yard, but he said "I can't give her that!  It's got kissing in it... she'll think I'm coming on to her!  It's too personal!"   Ah, my lovely husband... a man's man.

I would like to enter this card into the following challenges:
The Crafty Purple Frog: Anything Goes
Cute Card Thursday: Anything Goes
The Little Red Wagon: Clean and Simple
Flutterby Wednesdays: Anything Goes

Have a lovely Friday!

This is beautiful Arabella! I love the distressing and the stitching with this sweet image!
LOL, love how your husband feels he can't give this to the lady!

Mary J said...

YUM!! So jealous of your stash Arabella! And what a really fab card too!

Unknown said...

Hi Arabella, another fab card! Can't see anything with the stitching myself and love your bow.

That parcel looks like the sort of one you like arriving - not the brown envelope bills that seem to drop through our letter box!!


PS - That's the sort of male comment I have to put up with all the time! Then I've also got an Emily to contend with as well - I'm lucky any card gets out of this house!!!
