25th August 2011

Morning peeps the sun is shining and doesn't it make you feel better?  I've just done some crafting which is the first I've done for about a week.  I've made an easel card which I have only ever done before in a demo class this is the first time I've done it at home and I think I managed it ok.  The stamp is an Elizabeth Bell design from The Peekers range - so cute!  I've coloured it with copics and used a Nellie Snellen border die, Marianne flourish and MS punch. The papers are nitwits. Its a very sunny card because its a sunny day and I don't know how many more we'll be getting!!

I will enter it in the following challenges:

Cooking it up with Katie - Something wet with border and brad
Flutterby Wednesday - Anything goes but must have butterfly, fairy or angel on
