Hi to everyone, hope all is well. With all this lovely summery weather I'm finding it hard to sit and make  something to show you...after all we haven't had a beautiful  summer like this for such a long time that eating cold salads outdoors is a real novelty  in our part of the world and I do love the opportunity when we get a still mealtime without rain. Hope that it lasts a bit longer! So onto my circle card which is featuring a lovely stamp (used for the first time) from LOTV..gorgeous vase of flowers, comes with the sentiment too which fits nicely onto a Nutcrafters scroll stamp. Paper is a digi which somehow I've managed to cut off where it came from, coloured image with Promarkers, the insects have been decoupaged, scrap of ribbon, button from stash and a bit of glamour dust to finish.

So this one I'd like to enter firstly LOTV 'shabby chic', CCT 'buttons', Promarker 'fave combo...mine is green & pink', Papertake 'flower power', Glitter n sparkle 'anything but square', Creative Craft 'not a square', CYP 'summer flowers', Love to create 'fancy folds', Make it monday and Challenges 4 Everybody 'anything goes'. Wishing you all a fab evening, bye.

Good evening all. I've managed to make a 'friend' card using up items that have been in the left over box..backing paper is digi d/load scrap from another card, the pink I'm not sure where from but the lovely bee is from Pink Petticoat (they come with a sheet of sentiments too) great digi's for quick cards. Coloured with Promarkers, glamour dust added, faux stitching, sentiment from Baby Face Cuttlebug dies, re-used some twine from a garment tag and top text is stamp from a magazine. Forgot to take a pic of the back as I've folded over the backing paper for something different.

Good afternoon to all in blogland!!! As you can probably guess I've had a very 'looooooong break' for various reasons and I won't bore anyone as really what you would like to see is what I've made on my return. My desk was ashamedly left with remnants of my very last card from all those months ago but a quick tidy up and away I went with a cutaway card. I mean to say I slightly shaped the front...the gorgeous seaside image 'at the beach' is from Crafty Sentiments a freebie  (what a fab way to start off), used some old digi paper with shells stamped using a Promarker pen as is the top with the sentiment. Image coloured with Promarkers too. 

Hoping to get round to my fave blogs and see what changes there are if any, beautifully hot, hot, hot outside, this is what we've been waiting for but I must admit 'it's a bit too much for me'.
Challenges entered Crafty Sentiments, Simon Says 'anything goes' as are these..CCT, Party Time Tuesdays, Crafts & Me, The Paper Shelter, Word Play challenge. Enjoy the rest of the day, bye.
