It feels like an age since I last posted on this blog. I've been to Wimbledon twice which was fantastic but it meant four nights away from home so I am now way behind with work and all the washing, ironing and other boring household chores. Plus the weather is so gorgeous its hard drag myself in from the garden!

I've got two cards to show you today. The first is a Pink Gem DT card. Janet has just launched some new stamps which you can view here. This adorable elephant is called Ella, I just love her expression! I used a simple layout and some MME Wild Asparagus papers.

For my second card I wanted to used this Belles & Whistles stamp which I bought a few weeks ago but hadn't yet used. I've used distress inks for most of the colouring and a pale blue Tombow pen for the background colour. The paper is a double sided sheet from Prima Marketing and the gorgeous paper flowers were a birthday gift from Angela.

I hope you have a wonderful weekend and that the sun is shining in you part of the world.

Hi Sharon,
Both of these cards are wonderful. The papers are gorgeous and you have made such a good job of colouring these very different images. Brilliant work.

Both are such gorgeous cards Sharon! I love Ella - she's so cute! And your B&W stamp is so sweet - love how you put that card together! And I'm incredibly jealous you got to go to Wimbledon twice - lucky you! I've been kicking the boys off their x-box so I can get my daily Wimbledon fix! Enjoy your weekend!
Hugs, Danielle
