Lazy Summer Days

>> Tuesday, 1 June 2010

Oh dear, what happened to the weather? It's been awful in Kent today; wet and cold. To cheer myself up I visited the Lili of the Valley website and ordered a few of their new stamps!! A small package from Wild Orchid Crafts was waiting for me when I got home from work so I just had to make a card and use some of my new stash.

This is a digi image available directly from Elisabeth Bell's website - thank you Sue for telling me where to find her. The papers are DCWV Linen Closet collection and the background sheet is lovely and glittery which you can kinda see from the picture. The lace and flowers are my new stash and the sentiment is from Wild Rose Studio.

I'm going to enter this card into these challenges:

Sketch Saturday - sketch, Charisma Cardz - Round & round, Stampin' for the Weekend - Make someone smile, Papertake Weekly - Fun Fun Fun

Thank you for all your lovely birthday wishes. I guess 40 isn't too bad (so far anyway) but I'm definitely on a health kick for a few days after eating far too much over the long weekend!

Hi Sharon,
I love this image too. I'm testing my ink printer at the moment to see if I can get some digis and I think this one will be the first ^^.
I love the way you colored her.

I love your card- the detail is incredible and I love the soft colours you've used. Happy birthday for last Saturday! Mine was last Monday so we are practically twins - except you are only 40 and I am an antique! (But hey - it's only a number!)
