A quick card and some NEWS!

Well, not my best card is it?  But I'm absolutely useless in this heat - I'm finding it sooo frustrating because I have loads of orders and the craft room is just too hot.  I've got 6 cards that are all at the half-done stage, because I can just about manage to cut all the papers, lay everything out and stick things down, but I can't colour in the heat - I totally lose my colouring mojo!  Unfortunately for me, it's meant to be just as hot all weekend, and they're going to have to be coloured, so I'll just have to get on with it.

Enough of my moaning!  I have some fab news - I've been invited to join the Design Team at Little Claire Designs :o)  They have lovely stamps and lots of other gorgeous goodies, so it should be lots of fun.  I can't wait to find out who else is on the team!  I've made a quick card, because that's about all I can manage at the moment (sorry, I did say I'd done moaning didn't I?), using Little Claire's Happy Little Mice stamp.  I've cut the image into 3 sections, coloured them with promarkers, mounted them on orange DCWV cardstock and trimmed around them.  The spotty paper is DCWV, bright pink cardstock is from Papermill.  Flowers are Green Tara with a button from my stash.  Added a few pink flat back pearls and an ancient foiled die cut sentiment that I've coloured with a promarker - looks fine in 'real life' but isn't showing up well in the pic.

I'm entering my card for the following challenges:
I'm off to try and watch Andy Murray in the Wimbledon semi-final - Dex isn't happy having it on, every few minutes he shouts loudly for Bob The Builder or Roary The Racing Car pleeeeease, and when I say we're watching the tennis, he says 'no fair!' lol.



Well done you!! on the DT place x And I think the card is gorgeous!!!!! Leigh x
