You're so sweet!

Morning all. Well I am back with a card to show you and I have to say I am feeling so much better today, other than the fact that it's back to work for me today after my time off work! Today's card meets with a few of this weeks challenges. At Papertake weekly they want to see your creations using a season theme, I've chosen summer. Over at Tuesday Taggers and A Spooon Full of Sugar this week they want to see flowers on your creation.

Nothing says summer more to me than strawberries, I love to go strawberry picking. These Magnolia summer kit stamps are just so adorable, this is the first time I have used the strawberry, and I have sat my spring Tilda on them. My OH asked if Tilda was a little person as he said that this was the biggest strawberry he'd ever seen! Lol! He does say some funny things about my cards sometimes! Before you all start wondering where my flowers are on this creation, I know I haven't added any flower embellishements to my card but the DP is covered in pretty flowers and there are flowers in the image! I had a bit of a mishap with my strawberry in the top right corner. I inked the strawberry image with my whispers pens before stamping. I added glossy accents afterwards and it has made my image bleed slightly so you can't see the seed effect. Oh well you live and learn from your mistakes! Lol!

Materials:

Image: Spring Tilda sat on stawberry from this years summer kit, coloured with koh-i-noors and sansodor

Papers: MME Wild Asparagus, DCWV Christmas Stack

CS: Coredinations

Sentiment: Magnolia {from the summer kit}

Tools: distress inks, sponge, nesties, whispers pens

Misc: Red adhesive half pearls from papermania, Gingham ribbon from stash


Well I arrived home yesterday to a lovely package from Sarah's cards. I've ordered a yummy new EK Success border punch which I've had my eye on for ages and some dew drops in various colours. I think that's what I'll be playing with tonight when I get in from work! I also found a little craft shop in Melton Mowbray whilst we were away and bought some scrummy doodlebug papers that were in the sale, so no doubt you'll be seing them sometime soon as well! Lol!

I just want to say a big thank you to everyone who has given me awards lately. I have been a bit rubbish and haven't got around to displaying them yet. There just doesn't seme to be enough hours in the day, I will do my best to sort them out over the next few days though!

Have a great day everyone, hope your week gets off to a great start!

Hugs, Vicky ~x~
