Good morning. Big hello and welcome to all my lovely new followers - so good to see you - hope you like what you see and decide to stay a while :o)
At last the summer seems to have arrived and we are being spoilt with some gorgeous weather aren't we? The downside though is that it's too hot to craft in my little crafty haven after mid-morning - but I'm not complaining. Some of my good blogging buddies are far worse off as they have to work in this heat - and some have to work extremely long hours :o(
Today we have a new challenge for you over at
but first I would like to thank everyone that joined in with my
'Things With Wings' challenge last time - there were so many gorgeous entries it was a difficult task to pick a Top3 - don't forget to pop over to the main challenge blog and see if you were one.
So our theme for the next fortnight is
it couldn't get easier than that now could it :o)
I'm sharing another card I have made for Jamie for his birthday early June - this will be from John's Mum.
I have used a fab Mo Manning image 'Paul Texting' that I have had for absoulutely ages (this is my 6 months or more item) and have never got round to printing and colouring - but as Jamie never seems to have his phone out of his hands I knew it would be just perfect :o)
Image coloured with PM's and FM's
The DP's are from my favourite Nitwits Collection at the moment - Tour of London FBQ
which shows how versatile this collection is as it isn't just for Jubilee/Olympic projects.
Another item that is more than 6 months old that I have used are the star punches ands the sequin stars on the top layer - I won those in a blog candy about 2 years ago!
The scrummy ribbon is East of India - a bargain buy on Ebay
Sentiment from Craftwork Cards - layered onto two stars offset with eachother.
Border punch - Martha Stewart
