I am back from our wonderful holiday on the sunshine island of Rhodes. We had temperatures in the high 30s every day and one day it topped 43c. I do love the heat and with air con in our room to allow comfortable sleep I find it fully recharges our batteries ready for the coming autumn and winter.
I have not had time to download all our photos yet and I will write some posts but for now I shall just share a few of that wonderful sunshine and the blue Aegean Sea.
When we landed at Gatwick at 4am yesterday morning we had a temperature drop to 7c!
I plan to make a Moment of our trip but today I am catching up with my girlie and grand babies.
So today I am sharing an anniversary card I made for Dotty's Teahouse.
As we are saying goodbye to summer I thought one last hot sunny card would be very appropriate.
I made an inky background with summery distress inks, added some butterflies stencilling using my STAMPlorations stencil and then some die cut butterflies. I gave the middle butterfly some texture using Crackle Paste. The stamped sentiment is Lili of the Valley.
I would like to enter it into the following challenges;
Creative Inspirations 1/3 Seasonal my season is summer...time to say goodbye!
Moving along with the times 1/3 sentiment as a focal point
Sparkles 1/3 punches or dies
A bit more time to craft 1/3 anything goes
That's Crafty 1/3 fly away
Have a lovely weekend.
I am going to the Ally Pally Stamping show in London Sunday. It will be great to see Helen and Mark, my Visible Image "bosses" again and catch up. It is such a great show, one of the best imho. Perhaps I might see some of your there? I will be back on Monday with some photos.
Bye for now,
