Patterned Paper

We are back from a weeks house sitting for my cousin and I have at last made it to my craft room again, I wanted to join in the Wednesday Challenge at Simon Says so hunted through my huge stash of patterned paper to do this fussy cut card.  I used the "Spring Flower" stamp set from Simon Says and also their "Stitched Square "Dies, also added some pearls for a little sparkle.

Here are three shots I took in my cousins garden, he is a huge wildlife fan and encourages it to visit his garden.  The badger is a regular visitor, he loves peanuts!!

The squirrels eat all the seeds that fall from the bird feeders.

And this is a Damsel fly that was attracted to the pond in the garden.

Hope you all have a good week , I am off again to help with another school trip so no more crafting now to next week!

Summer Poppies!

May and June have been very busy months for me including , a holiday to Nice and a weeks trip with my daughters school to Purbeck so I have not stepped foot in my craft room for ages, I received some new goodies before I went on holiday to France and have just found time to play with them.  I made this card for my friends wedding anniversary next month with my new Painted Poppy stamp from Altenew. The Die cut frame is from "My Favourite Things" and I love the effect.

I stamped and gold embossed the sentiment onto vellum.  I shall add this card to the Simon Says Wednesday Challenge  which is "Emboss it" and also the Flickr group "Love Handmade cards" June challenge "Summer celebrations".

Unfortunately I shall be unable to craft now for another couple of weeks  as we are housesitting for my cousin.  Hopefully July will be a bit quieter and I will get to play again with my new stamps and also do some blog visiting.
