Are you dancing in puddles today with your wellies on? Wow, we've certainly washed away all that gorgeous sun now haven't we?!
I'm entering my card into Sketch Saturday, where Gill has provided us with an amazing sketch. I have moved my flowers around as I felt they would be very cramped on my card if I'd copied the way they were positioned on the sketch layout - hope that's okay? I'm also entering The Next Level for the first time where the brief is to use Buttons and Bows. I've used chipboard buttons and string for the bows. My lovely friend Tara G sent me the buttons from Canada and I love them!
The gingham paper is some I picked up at my local market stall and the red spotty is from the new Basic Grey June Bug range. I cut the swirls with a Bigz Sizzix Die and the flowers are an EK Success Retro Flower Punch. This is the first time I've used this adorable Tilda (coloured with Copics) and I have to say she's one of the cutest and sweetest of them all! I cut my sentiment out with a Dymo and the lace and gems are from my stash.
We had a fab time at M-I-L's 70th party on Sunday which was held in my S-I-L's garden. They have a swimming pool (lucky or what?) and the kids had a whale of a time as the weather was so glorious. Hubster and I decided not to go in the pool, but after a few glasses of champers we both jumped in......... fully clothed, lol!!!!
I'll leave you with that image!!
Enjoy the rest of your day, whatever you're up to.
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!!
