Cocktail Emma

Happy May Day everyone, anyone got anything nice planned?  Nothing much on the cards here, I was hoping to go for a run, but yet again I have woken to rain.  Think it's set to improve though so hopefully this afternoon I'll get out.

A new stamp purchase for me today after I was requested to make a cocktail themed card for a friend. Honest, I did check through all my stamps before I headed online and found this super digi from Pink Gem.

So said image was partially coloured with Promarkers, paper pieced and then given a good dose of glossy accents, which resulted in...


Think I'll do more like this for my card box as I have a feeling an image like this could sell quite well after all who doesn't like cocktails and this is a great party/celebration style image.

Ooh, this is really lovely Janice, the monochrome looks fab with the splash of red and I think you are quite right, that card would suit all kinds of celebrations. As for your query about Surprise, quite simply...she's a diva!! If she could, she would come into the house...sadly Amazon don't sell a cat flap that big......only joking!! Hope the weather brightens up for your run xx

She's definitely my kinda girl Janice and the monochrome and splash of red works so well.

And with those cherries it's just perfect for our Allsorts theme, many thanks for joining us there and also at Stamping Sensations.
