I decided yesterday to make another card based on a few challenges that had been stewing away in my head. (Honestly, it's far less painful than it sounds!)
My attention was first caught by the new challenge at the Cutie Pie challenge blog, which was to use the colour purple. Well, it just so happens to be my favourite colour, so this got me thinking.
So, I had my basic colour. Next, I needed a stamp to work with. And then I remembered I'd recently gotten my hands on what I consider to be one of the cutest stamps ever! This stamp featured Tilda and Edwin hugging, which then led me to the Marvellous Magnolia blog for inspiration, where the theme is "For a Friend". What better way to send a hug to a friend than with a lovely card?
And finally I made my way to the Time for Magnolia blog, where a lovely bingo board was waiting.
Thus armed with plenty of ideas, I sat down and made this:
These two are so sweet! They remind me so much of my kids. Yes, my kids hug! In fact, they are so unlike other siblings it can be scary... They never fight. Maybe a mild disagreement once in a blue moon, but mostly they get on brilliantly all the time. And they hug. Each other and me. All. The. Time.
And I have to admit I was rather pleased with myself, as I managed to include the entire bingo board! Full house!
There's also a tag which comes out, and has a lovely message waiting for the friend in question to discover.
And that's that!
I hope you all like it. I certainly enjoyed the challenge of bringing it all together. (Note to self: Buy more magnolia stamps, for they be awesome and good to colour!)
Have a fantastic day!
