Oh how I long for the sunshine !


Hello I am just popping on to quickly show you the card I made with The sweet Sunday Sketch - Which I may add I just fell in love with again.

Karen's sketches and cards never fail to inspire me and this week it has inspired me to try another new style - what do you think does it work or is it a bit too "homemade" ?!

I actually really like it and had such fun making it too. I've used a new digi actually it's a freebie by TLC creations and another new addition to my crafty stash - yes more digital paper this one's by Stephanie Fizer called Sheltering tree available to download here at MFT.

I coloured the image with my promarkers and some chalk and that cute branch border is of course a MS punch !
The "sunshine" was made with a circle nestie and some doodlebug paper frills and the chipboard button is from K & Co.

Simple and super quick to make x
