Everybody still sleeping, I can spend a few more minutes on the computer and post a new card for my favorite Challenge, Sweet Sketch Wednesday
After making the Top Three (yes, I know, I keep repeating that but I'm still sooo happy!!!) last week I had to make a card for this week's Challenge. Moreover, the sponsor is Bugaboo Stamps so I really couldn't miss it!
As usual, there is a Sketch to follow:
And here's my card:
Patterned papers are a real treasure for me: they are difficult to find in my town so I usually have to order them and quite expensive so this time I decided to paint my background paper. I made a frame with some paper strips and make paint dots around them. I don't know if this solution seems a patterned paper but I like it.
I even used one precious button for the sun: I have a passion for buttons and I have problems in using my favorite ones... but I'll talk about this another time.
I really loved to think about summer and warm weather, I'm one of those girls who could go to sleep on January 6 and wake up in April. I hate the dark cold winter days. I resist until Christmas - I love Christmas - but after that, nothing.
While painting this little frog, I dreamed about summer holidays, long wam sunny days, some sun tan on my too pale face, no jackets, socks, boots, scarves, hats... Have you ever counted how many things you have to wear in winter?
The only pro is: more time for crafting and I'm really trying to spend every spare minute making new cards while dreaming about summer...
