A little bit of Summer

Afternoon crafty people , suns out here after a dull start , so I thought I'd post 2 summery cards I've made .

The summer garden card features an image from a Lili of the valley art pad , the diecuts are tattered lace from the garden of joy set and the peirced square is by Sue Wilson . I've coloured the die cuts with promarkers and a white gel pen.
The embellishment I made using a ribbon and a glue gun , gluing into a flower shape , I added a rose I made using filmo in a rose mould and baking in the oven.

challenges entered  for summer garden card :

Allsorts : ribbon more than just a bow

 For my squirrel card , I used a stamp by Joanna Sheen that was the gifted in a creative stamping magazine . I stamped in London fog ink to give a lighter mor hand painted look , then coloured with pro markers . The paper is from B&M .

well I'm hoping the sun here keeps shinning for a while longer , and I hope my long wait for my tattered lace dies from the very slow create and craft arrive soon .

Air Mail

Good afternoon crafting friends, nice warm day here, off to a barbecue party at 6 so glad of the weather . Sorry if I've not commented much this week , I've got internet problems , they are sending someone out on Monday .
