Lazy Sunday

Well my oh my what a funny old day we had yesterday?! Much of it was spent watching the rain coming down in stair rods with thunder rumbling away overhead and much lightning illuminating otherwise dark rooms and then .... the sun came out and it was lovely!! Then, it was back to rain/thunder, etc ... and then sun! What WAS that all about?? Either rain or don't!, sort yourself out weather! And I would NEVER have thought that we would have been BBQ-ing again last evening OR sitting outside chatting over a beer till 8pm either - such weird weather!
There wasn't much option during the wet parts, aside from crafting so, here's an anniversary card I made for the "celebrate" challenge over at Addicted to CAS yesterday:
Materials used:
  • 15cm square white, 300 gsm card blank and matching sized envelope
  • 13½cm square white card panel for image
  • Black card for matting
  • Hero Arts scribble image stamped using Distress Ink in spun sugar, several times at different angles
  • Hero Arts Scribble heart image stamped several times using Memento rosebud ink
  • Woodware sentiment stamped using Versafine onyx black ink
  • Stardust stickles to highlight the "scribbles" on the heart
I'm also going to be entering the above card for the current challenge over at Addicted to Stamps and More as the challenge is: "Clean And Simple" and my make certainly fits that bill!!

Week two of Clare's Summer School "Me Time Messages" was launched on Friday so, just maybe, I could crack on with that then? If you weren't aware of this free on-line workshop then nip over and check it out - it's self paced so ..... you don't have to worry about coming late to the party! ENJOY
Have a fab Sunday peeps
