What a wet morning - sorry ladies, all our fault as there's some work going on outside here. Mind you, rain has stopped play for now so my prayer mat is out for better weather too!
It's our DIL's birthday and, rain or no rain, I have to go and post this today so that it arrives in Germany on time:
The image was sent to me by Sarn of Stamping for Pleasure (thanks again hun!), it's a House Mouse one called 'Sunny Side Up'. Coloured with Pro Markers then trimmed right round the image - does everyone else sort of stick their tongue between their teeth when snipping carefully?!
The orange background card is 'Core'dinations, the yellow papers are from my snippets with the plain one embossed using a small free embossing folder that came with a magazine a little while back - perfect for snippets!
I couldn't find any matching green card so used the little trick of cutting a piece of white card to size and then ran one of the greens I'd used (chisel end) right round the edge. The yellow card was left from the embossed card and the brown card came from my snippets too. The sentiment is from Craftwork cards.
Josy Rose Nail Heads added the finishing touch. I love these Jules and, although you might not participate in 'awards' there is a button on my sidebar which I'd like you to snag - it came to me from The Crafty Elf and is a kind of 'it's all your fault' button! It says' Way to go! You're To Blame And That's A Good Thing!'
I chose the HM image as I love sunflowers and am sure that Kai, our DIL, does too. Right now in Germany I expect the fields are full of them - and you can pick your own, along with all sorts of gorgeous flowers. There would be an honesty box beside the pathway of the field for you to pay - huh, I wonder if that would work over here? The honesty box would probably be pinched!
I'm entering this into Jules Crafty Snippets Challenge Week 33. So not only does Jules have brilliant ideas, and wonderful cards - she also encourages us to use up our snippets. Previously I would have just searched through whole sheets of card and paper - now I always check out my snippets first and it's amazing what you find!
Thanks so much for calling by - I hope the sun is shining where you are, if so please send some here!
