Good morning to you all on this beautiful sunny day ;o)
Sorry I haven't been around this week but I took the opportunity to have fun with my hubby and the kids whilst we're all off together..... we've been swimming, visited the cinema, had friends round and been on lovely walks. Today we've decided to tidy up the outside of the house whilst it's so nice out there!
I did manage to squeeze in a couple of cards this week but I'm saving one of them until I know that it has arrived at its destination for a certain birthday girl. Here's my other card and I decided to follow the fab sketch over at The Sugar Bowl for this one. I did tweak the sizes of the layers slightly but I think you can still see that I followed the layout pretty well. I used this gorgeous Daisy stamp from Sugar Nellie and my papers are the new V&A collection from Papermania..... they have quite subtle colours and patterns which are perfect for a vintage style.
Do you like my flower? The added option for the challenge is flowers so I decided to make one. I cut out the shapes freehand and then embossed and scrunched them for definition. I added some stamens which I picked up at the NEC and have just been itching to use..... finally I sprayed the whole thing with some glimmer mist.
Well I hope you are making the most of this fantabulous sunshine today and have fun outdoors ;o)
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!!
