Perfect Moment




Hi and thanks for calling in, things have definitely been a bit quite around here - I blame all the sunshine we've been having, but as today has been overcast with a couple of heavy showers, I headed back to the craft desk.

I made the Distress Oxide background a while ago, my little girl, an image saved from the internet, was fussy cut before I  applied her.  I was lucky and won the last challenge at Stamping Sensations and received a voucher for Visible Image stamps and this is one of their sentiments, stamped with Black Versafine and heat embossed with clear EP.  Some die cut wildflowers to finish, a nice quick and easy card and flat for posting!

Tomorrow is supposed to be sunny again, so I'd better make the most of today's clouds!

No rain still - its just really hot and unbearable. Maybe the flying ants in our consveravory since yesterday (grrr) might be a sign of rain coming - I do hope so.
Beautiful piece Avril - nice fussy cutting - and lovely colours.
Congrats on your win too.

Pleased you got your prize stash Avril and have made a great card with it, VI do make some super sentiments. The rain has now made it here and I hate saying sadly as I love the warmth, but we so desperatly need some, the padocks are parched and we are feeding hay, unheard of this time of year.

It is indeed hard to craft in glorious weather so I'm very pleased to see that you had a beautiful existing background ready to go for this little cutie!
