Good Friend

Hello lovely peeps

Nick is back on Hochanda again today at 11am and 3pm with another new collection of stamps, stencils and dies. There's a bit of a floral theme going this time, as well as an amazing dolphin die.

I made this card for the shows with the gorgeous gerbera stamp in the Bloom and Grow set, and lettering from the Such a Card set which appeared last Friday (I used the letters in 'friend' and joker' to do the 'for')

The background was made by dabbing Distress Inks onto my craft mat, spritzing them with water and then dragging watercolour card through.

I would like to enter this in the following challenges:-
Creative Inspirations Spring greens (green or greenery)
Kitty Bee Designs #139 in the garden
YNS Challenges  #110 pastels

Also from the Bloom and Grow set was this lovely sentiment, which I chopped up before doodling lines around the edges. The background for my tag was made with a similar method to that above, but first I sponged Distress Oxides through the 'Fancy Flourish' stencil and dried the card before dragging it through the ink on my craft mat.

I would like to enter this in the following challenges:-
Crafter's Cafe #215 borders OR include some metal
The Crafty Addicts #58 Optional embellish it

I hope you enjoy Nick's shows today. Don't forget my teamies will have some more inspiration for you on their blogs/social media
