Some Hobby House Inspiration and Blog Candy Winner

Good evening crafting friends. I hope you are all well:)

Blog Candy Winner

Sorry I didn't blog the winner of the blog candy yesterday, but as you all know life is a little hectic at the moment and today was my sons prom (I will be sharing some pictures next week)so this is the first chance I have had to put my feet up and finally get 5 minutes to myself  and do a blog post:)
So the lucky winner of any Heartfelt Creations paper pad of your choice and a few other crafting goodies is................Tracy Stitt!!! Congratulations Tracy....if you email your paper pad choice I will get your candy off to you:)
Now for todays card which is a Hobby House DT card that I should have shared a few days ago with you all:(  But better late than never I think is the moto:)
I have used one of the new Elizabeth Bell art pads from The Hobby House and coloured the cute image in with copics........Spot the mistake (well actually it is was mishap rather than a mistake).....yes I am sure you can all see that the ink ran on her hat, but unfortunately I coloured her quite late at night and hadn't noticed until the morning and I thought well it's just the top of the hat and the actual card is ok...however it actually looks worse when I uploaded the picture, but I still wanted to share her with you all:)
  •  The pin is also from The Hobby House....they come in a kit and you get an assortment of different colours and sizes of  pearls.
  • The paper is one of the Lili of the Valley paper pads.
  • The ribbon and rose are also The Hobby House.
  • The die that I have used to layer my image onto is a Spellbinder die and the flourish on the bow is from the Heartfelt Creations die set - Gift Ensemble.
Sorry this is just a quick write up of details of the card today......I should be back to my normal blogging regime very soon:)
Take Care x

    congrats to the lucky winner Tracy.

  15. Pretty card Nikki. Love the colours you use and the rose paper is just gorgeous. Such a cute little girl - I would never have noticed the mishap if you hadn't pointed it out! Images don't always 'read' well on screen anyway what with cast shadows, lighting effects etc.

  18. Hi Nikki, it's a lovely card I really wouldn't have noticed the hat if you hadn't pointed it out and then I had to look hard to see what you meant. Congratulations to Tracy, lucky lady.

  19. Hi Nikki, I'm late checking in this week, it's been so busy at work I've not had time to look at blogs as normal.
    This is such a pretty card, love the colours and the hat, well, I would not have noticed if you hadn't pointed it out!
    You have so much going on in your life at the moment I'm surprised you have time for creating at all!
    Well done to Tracy!
