Hullo , Hullo,
I did say I would be back with a card a little less Christmassey so here it is not a hint of Christmas anywhere apart from the sparkle of course!
"Whilst Blog Hopping" I came across this lovely summery card by my friend Nicki and she had followed a great sketch from Truly Scrumptious so I thought I would join in as she had got me in a summery mood and I used my new Penny Black stamp "Bee Costume"which was a bargain from a friend at a craft sale.
I wish It was like summer here today, I don't know about you but where I am it was blooming windy!!
This card also fits nicely into the Penny Black Saturday Challenge you can choose 4 items from the buffet list to make your card, I have chosen the items, twine, patterned paper, charm and 3 gems.
I will also be entering my card into the following challenges( wish I had the time to enter more)
The Pink Elephant challenge - pink orange and aqua
OOH la la creations - bling it on
cupcake craft challenge - something new
Stamp something - anything goes
simply create - use your punches
Well I am off for a nice relaxing evening in front of the TV tonight just chilling as this dreaded lurgy seems to be trying to take me over yet again!!
Bye for now
