Baking Ginger

Wow it's been such a long time since I created a card... although very rusty I had so much fun colouring this sweet new stamp High Hopes Baking Ginger by the fabulous Artist Dustin Pike. I really must get back to creating a little more regularly!

My card was created using Debbie's great sketch over at our our Bunny Zoe's Craft Challenge blog. Don't forget that each month one lucky player has the chance to win a £25 Gift Certificate!

Ginger was coloured with Prismacolor Pencils using paper stumps and Odourless White Spirit to blend. The cute paper is from the Whiff of Joy Winter Pretties Paper Pad (her little dress was paper pieced with some leftover scraps). Other items used... 4mm flat backed Pearls, 4mm Heart Pearls, Tangerine Pom Pom Ribbon and dark pink raffia lace.

Be sure to pop on over to the High Hopes blog to join in their fun Blog Hop... and check out all the wonderful samples from the awesome Diva's for the new release today!

All the new stamps are now available to purchase at Bunny Zoe's Crafts.

Thanks so much for stopping by and have a wonderful day!

What an adorable card, yes you must create more often! I miss seeing your cards! And what a cutie!! My mom has a Maine Coon, really not that big but yes full of energy! My cat is also 16, once in a while he gets a spring in his step but he's mostly a cuddler :)
