Good morning dear friends and a happy bank holiday Monday. I am extra excited as I have a whole week off from work this week *yay*, although my kids are not as impressed as me, as they’d rather have the house to themselves lol! Anyway I plan to do lots of crafting and try to get ahead with DT cards and orders so that I’m not constantly chasing my tail haha! Let’s hope the weather improves a little, as this weekend has been really wet and wild here.
Onto my card! Over at stamp with fun challenge this week we have a lovely theme for you “in the garden”, so we basically want to see things you would find in the garden – easy right? Here is my card:
I have used a new digi from Wee Stamps called ‘sweet blossom’ and coloured her with my promarkers. The gorgeous papers are first edition from the ‘daydream’ paper pack. I added stickles to the flowers and also to the buttons, which are super sparkly IRL.
The rest of the design team have created amazing samples as always, so please pop over the the challenge blog and check them out. We really appreciate all the lovely comments you leave for us.
