Sweet Stampin' - Bingo Board

Happy Easter! It's time for our new challenge over at Sweet Stampin' and this week we have a bingo board for you to play with. You need to pick a line, whether that's vertically, horizontally or diagonally. I picked sentiment, flower and cute for my card.
I bought this cute stamp set last weekend at my copic colouring class. If you own any copics, then I highly recommend you take Faye's class. I learnt lots and Faye is a great teacher and gives great hugs too! 
I love guinea pigs and owned two, but discovered I was allergic to them and came out in a rash when I handled them, so didn't get any more. I do miss the way they would start wheeking expectantly the minute they heard the key in the back door! My neighbour three doors down used to hear them too! So, I couldn't resist this Gerda Steiner Wheek Wheek Wheek stamp set. I stamped the elements in memento and coloured them in with my copics and cut them out. I also stamped some flowers from one of the very early Hunkydory stamp sets and did the same. I stamped one of the sentiments from the set on a dinky 4x4 card base and then glued the elements in place. Guinea pigs never stop eating and so I decided to stand him in a load of leaves and pop some on his head as my piggies (Treacle and Marmite) often ended up with veggies on their head as the rummaged for the best bits.
As ever, I can't wait to see your creations, you've got a week to join in and remember you need to use stamping somewhere on your card. 
Apologies if I haven't visited you recently, my chest infection really wiped me out and having a busy weekend and being back at work really hasn't helped. Thank goodness for a long weekend to recover. I hope you all have a fabulous Easter x


  1. A brilliant fun card Cara, and your colouring is ace. Hope you are up and running after your chest infection, really takes the stuffing out of you, take care, Kate x

  5. Love your fun card Cara, fab sentiment too. I used to breed and show guinea pigs about 8 yrs ago (at one stage I had around 70) but then I hurt my back and couldn't carry on, I really miss them as they each had their own little characters,
    Hugs Kaz xx
