Little Claire - Have a nice day!

Hello on a freezing snowy day, here in Scotland. Today I'd love to show you a card featuring some new goodies from Little Claire. I've used the new Pastel Tartan and Ombre paper pads and I've given you a little sneak peek of the new monthly stamp set "Scottie Dogs". I have a  tutorial for this card on the Little Claire blog.

Cute Card Thursday

This week's Cute Card Thursday Challenge theme is


So first of all I made the card with the framed lines and sentiment on my Cricut Explore. I then stamped the image and paper pieced the image with Craftwork Cards papers from the Al Fresco pad. I've used Shin Han pens to colour her skin and hair. A little glossy accents by her feet to look like a puddle and it was done.

Stamp: My Favourite Things - Sunny Thoughts
Papers: Craftwork Cards - Al Fresco

Our sponsor this week is Diane's Daydream Digis and some of the DT have used her images to inspire you.
