Annabelle on her bicycle

Good morning card makers.
I'm posting early on a Saturday morning as I'm guesting over at JUGS for the month of September, thanks for asking girls!
Here's my first card using this weeks cue card.

I had a look through my stash to find a suitable stamp and came up with this older rubber stamp from Lili of the Valley, Annabelle on her bicycle. The basket is full of her cute pup in this case!
My printer is playing up at the moment as you can see from the rather patchy DP in the background, so I'm stuck with using up scraps of DP in my stash until I can sort it out. The sky and checked strips, with a little added Copic marker are NitWits, as is the grass, which I cut using an ancient MS border punch!

So after colouring the stamped image and fussy cutting it out, I put it to one side and concentrated on the layout. I had a panel of linen effect card that was creased, so I cut that away and from what was left I cut a circle from the middle and then ran it through my Big Shot with the same large circle EF I used for my card yesterday, this time I used the reverse. A couple of strips of Copic coloured card to pick out the colours in the image were added to the bottom with clear tape. A couple of scraps of green NitWits DP punched with the grass edge punch were glued behind the opening. On my base card, made from some of the same linen effect card, I added the cloud and checks DP, to which I also added some of the same Copic colour as the strips as there wasn't any showing, adding the top panel on pads. A sentiment strip was added then Annabelle on pads to complete.

So how will you interpret the cue word? We'd love to see you in the JUGS gallery this week.
