Hello Molly Bloom...

Hi there girlfriends... I made a quick card this evening with a stamp I received from one of my lovely blogfriends.  I've been dying to stamp and colour her to make a card and thought I'd do so quickly before I hit the sack.  Hence a smaller card this time... it's ages since I've made this size with a side fold...

The new stamp is a Molly Bloom by artist Clare and I think I have just have to get her some sisters to keep her company... what do you think ?  Ain't she sweet ?

I chose lovely soft colours for this card... don't you just love the card candy? I am so pleased that I got them from Crafty Emma's Store.

I am so used to working with bigger square cards, that I found it so strange working with this side and style again.  Here's a peek at the inside.  Created faux stitching around my image on the front and did the same where the message is to be written in the inside.

As this was a quickie card, next time I'll use some of my other accessory stamps, so that she doesn't look so lonely... a little bit of grass beneath her feet would have been nice hey ?

That's it for tonight, thanks for popping by. hugs Sharon
