Stampin' For The Weekend #4

Due to my holiday and feeling poorly last week this is the first time I've been able to take part in the Stampin' For The Weekend challenges. And this week there is a great project titled "Pocket Full of..." The stampin' for the weekend team would like to see you make a wallet or pocket card. I've been meaning to send a certain friend (naming no names, as she hasn't got em yet...lol) some stamped images for a good few weeks now, so this was the perfect opportunity to get a wallet made and some images stamped.





I've used one of my old time favourite Sugar Nellie stamps, Daisy and coloured her with copics and watercolour pencils with a water brush, and a bit of blue chalk to the background. Cut image and yellow glitter card mount using Labels 2 Nesties. DP is K & Co. The flower is a mix of fabric and prima's held together with a pearl brad. The dangly is an old odd earring adding the 'made with love' heart charm with a silver jump ring. Finished with some tiny Anita's gems, then punched two holes so the wallet can be secured with some yellow cord.

Can't believe it's the weekend again already, where's the past week gone? It's quite humid here today but no sun as yet, I think it's meant to be brightening up a bit later this afternoon. It sounds like many of us could be in for a bit of a heatwave next week, not sure if thats good or bad really. Well whatever you are up to this weekend, I hope you have a good one. Thanks for visiting and any comments are much appreciated. xxx

Daisy is coloured to perfection Joanne and I always wonder what she is thinking. Loving your paper and gorgeous layered flower - ooh what a super idea to use the ear ring and add the charm - very effective indeed. Your wallet is beautiful and crammed full of images which your friend will appreciate and enjoy.
Thank you for joining us at "Stampin for the Weekend" and we hope you will continue to play along with us.
Have a wonderful weekend sweetie.

Oh Wow Joanne, this is fantastic, I love the paper you used and your coloring is always fabulous and I love all the little details you've added as in the charm and the dangly earring and the gems in the corners., The inside is great too and I really love how you've got a closure on it as in the string, what a great idea, never thought of that.

Hi Joanne,
I agree with you about this stamp - it's one of my favourites too. I love the vibrant summery colours you have used. What a great idea to use an old odd earring, I would love to receive a card like this with the odd diamond earring attached lol!
Thanks for joining us at the SFTW challenge this week.
