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 
Make my Monday : lazy days of summer 

 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 .

challenges entered :

dream valley : use a stamp or digi image 
i love pro markers : summer

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 .

Well I was so pleased to see your first card Jane, it's so bright and Summery and lightened a really cold, wet and dreary day here, so cold the heating is on the last couple of hours. Only in the UK could we have such a contrast, 27deg Monday 14deg Wednesday.

Your second card with the Squirrel is also very sweet, many thanks for joining us at Allsorts challenge.
