Good afternoon lovely peeps - another glorious one!
Even though I am stuck at work we've got the radio on and the windows wide open, plus there are only a handle of students wondering round and the rest are in exams. I do feel a bit sorry for them actually - who wants to sit a two-hour Law exam in this weather?!
Anyway, I'd best get on with my card as I can't stay on here for long. I've used one of the new Miss Anya stamps which is perfect for paper piecing and decided to go with some bright, zingy colours for this one - must be the weather! I sat trying to come up with a suitable sentiment and in the end this song came to mind - it was either that or 'you can stand under my umbrella', lol! I'm entering the card into this week's Cute Card Thursday Challenge, which is 'a bit of bling'. The bling I've used is the black sparkly gems - they don't show up that well in photo but they are nice and sparkly IRL.
Materials: Image - The Greetings Farm Sentiment - Computer Generated Flower Stamp - Dawn Bibbey Papers - Basic Grey Lime Rickey Die - Sizzix Swirl Colouring - Copics Embellishments - Chipboard Corner and Black Gems from stash
I've also uploaded a couple of piccies of the Clematis flowers currently blooming in my garden. I was told when I first got into gardening that they can be quite tricky to grow, but all that stroking and talking to them must be paying off! Hope you like them ;o)
Catch you later then and enjoy yourselves if you're sunbathing today...... don't get too pink!!
Cardmaking is my passion and I love sharing tips and ideas with other talented crafters. I wake up with ideas buzzing around in my head and go to sleep the same way. My family think I'm bonkers but that's fine by me. I have an ever-growing wishlist, made worse by all the wonderful cards I see when hopping around on a daily basis. I have made some wonderful friends through my hobby, long may it continue!!
