I decided to write a sunshine filled post to remind us that we still have another month of summer left. I wanted to share with you a new variety of my favourite summer tipple which I noticed on the shelves of the supermarket recently. Pimm's bring out some new editions from time to time but I did not want to buy a whole bottle. I then noticed some in cans, ready made with lemonade. There was no excuse now not to try it. Obviously this found its way into my bag.
My card challenge today is also red/summer based and is a card I made for a 40th birthday.
These are the others available
Here are a couple of close ups of my card
I made the background with distress inks and then embossed my Visible Image rose stamps using glitter embossing powder.
I altered a bronze flower charm with paints.
I would like to enter my card into the following challenges;
Anything but cute making magic again I was inspired by all the gorgeous shimmering textures in the photos. I also think my flower with the heart brad looks like something from a fairy tale like Snow White...or is that just in my mad head?
Mixed media world gorgeous textures
Country View Crafts summertime
Crafty cardmakers No patterned paper
Papertake weekly take your pick I have chosen vintage/distressed
Simon says stamp Wednesday anything goes
Pixie's Snippet Playground week 191 here I used a snippet of ribbon on my card, I didn't have enough for a bow but still thought it added some shimmer to my card.
Fingers crossed that this biblical rain moves on in time for the upcoming bank holiday. We are meeting friends for a trip to a National Trust Property on Sunday and it would be lovely to stroll around the grounds as well as visiting the house.
Thanks for visiting and I would like to extend a very warm welcome to my newest followers. I really hope you enjoy following my creative journey here at Jane's Journal. I hope that today's post has reminded us that there is lots of sunshine around us.....even if it's not shining from the sky just at this moment.
Bye for now,
