Mid week post...


Hi all, hope your all enjoying a lovely week, first full week of the kids off School for us here and it's quite chaotic...lol...
I made this yesterday with this new image from Sherri Baldy bestie collection you can find her here...cute or what...she is called Here comes the sun..but I didn't use all the images that came with her..

coloured with flex markers, card stock is paper mill, various dies used, Brickwork was sent to me by a very kind friend, so I just coloured it slightly with some distress ink, the sentiment is an old stamp from stash..
Will try and enter a challenge or two, not been entering much lately for some reason...

That's all from me until Friday when it will be our very last challenge for the summer at CRAFTYCATZ, so come join us...see you all soon..xxxxx

CraftyCatz challenge #424 ATG



Good morning, hope you are all happy and feeling fine..
This week at CraftyCatz the optional twist has been chosen by our lovely teamie Jackie, she wanted us to do a Summer Fun theme, so we did...
Our sponsor this week are the fabulous Paper Shelter, who kindly provided the team with images, but I did use one of my own

Here is my card, I used Girl in a hammock..
 Paper from a lovely 6x6 pad I bought from the ribbon girl, real pretty and never wanted to use, Ivy die and sentiment from an old sentiment set, the image was coloured with Flex markers base card the usual PaperMill.
She looks so relaxed, I would love a hammock, but honestly if I managed to get in I would NEVER get out without ending up in the A&E...true...
Think that's about it for today ladies, hope your looking forward to a nice weekend, so far our glorious hot weather is holding, it has been wonderful, last time this happened was 1976, I was heavily pregnant with my first babe and the heat went on and on, beautiful really...so I guess we deserve a break....
See you in the week, I have my daughters birthday card to show, very similar to two others I made recently but will add anyways...thanks so much for the visit, see you all soon..xxx
