Summer Delights

Good afternoon. What a beautiful day it is here in sunny Gloucestershire - the sun always makes me feel bright & cheery and somehow full of energy.

Today I have been busy making some more birthday cards for the boys - which I will share with you later - but to have a break from the male colours and styles I have made this card for the All That Scraps sketch challenge and as I have used what I think are perfect 'summer' colours I am also entering it into Cupcake Crafts - Summer Delights and Papertake Weekly - Fun Fun Fun challenges.

I have used Birgitta on a Tree Stump digi image available from All That Scraps coloured with PM's. The gorgeous DP's are Tim Holtz - vintage Shabby - still loving these papers. I have also used a torn strip of K&Co vellum. Martha Stewart butterfly border punch, some gorgeous adhesive pearls from Hobby House a Prima Flower and a Wild Orchid Rosehead and finished with some yummy Posh Pins - available here

Hope you are having a wonderful day.
Just about to take Jack & 2 friends to the cinema - they only want me to take them - I'm not allowed to stay - then I have to go back and collect them lol!!!

Thanks for popping over.

Love the colours in this card Debs and that image is adorable too! I also like those TH papers in fact everything on this card I like! LOL. Now you wouldn't want to be sitting in the cinema on a day like this anyway would you? I mean what a waste of a sunny day during half term! Enjoy. Hugs, Claire x
