Summery card to match the weather !



Hello hope you have all been enjoying the weather - although it does seem to be about to slide the slippery slope that leads to a cold/wet bank holiday - oh well if it rains it means more time to craft !

I found that the gorgeous weather made me get out this stamp I've had a couple of weeks but not had a chance to use - def a summer image and perfect for my friends little girl who is 5 in June.

I stamped the image with black stazon and coloured it using my Lyra aquacolors.

I have never seen a set like this before with a stamp and paper all together but it is great and fantastic value at about £6. The stamp is an Ollyfant cool kids clear stamp and it came with 24 sheets of 6 x 6" co-ordinating papers.

Inside I have used a little verse that I found on a great site called The cardmakers little helper they have loads of verses and quotes for every occasion and they can really make a card special.

I am entering this into the following challenges
C.R.A.F.T Challenge this week who want to see a Celebration/birthday creation. They also have a fab blog hop with a great prize this week.
Oh la la challenge blog who this week want to see bright and cheerful creations
stamp something challenge blog who want us to use 2 of something - I have used 2 sentiments and stamped them both with 2 inks (first pink and then blue).
Creative creations challenge want a card for a child
The shabby tea room has a great inspiration picture with pink polka dots, just like my ribbon.

Thanks for having a look I hope you like it x
