2 in 1

Hi everybody

This card is being entered into two challenges
- All Sorts Challenge, week 14 which has has a theme of 'In a English Country Garden' and this is my take on it, with the birds also flying around the garden.
- Cute Card Thursday, no. 74 - Lazy Dayz, which can be a summery stamp or have a summer colour theme.

Sarah Kay are some of favourite 'cute' stamps, and so pretty. I have coloured with Prisma pencils - I think I might be getting the hang of them at last - having had them in the cupboard since last year and hardly used them (no excuse at all!). The Magenta papers are a new purchase from Crafts U Love.


Stamps - Sarah Kay and Penny Black
Colour - Prisma pencils
Papers - Magenta Printemps Passion
Flowers - Prima
Brads, Spacers, and Punches for leaves - The Hobby House

Thanks for stopping by.

  5. Hi Val,
    Been away for a couple of days at my daughter's (used her home as a B&B, Lol) and up to the Graphicus Christmas Stamp Launch so not been blog hopping.

    You've posted a couple of lovely cards while I've been awol but this is my favourite. The colours are so pretty and are a perfect compliment for the lovely image. I have several Sarah Kay stamps but not this one.
