Summer - My Crafty Heart DT

Hello everyone :o)

I've used one of the gorgeous Saturated Canary stamps from My Crafty Heart for my card today... I think this one might be my favourite.  I've coloured almost all of it with copics (except for the sky as I've not got any blues yet), some bits I'm happy with and some I'm really not... lots more practise required!  My copic collection is gradually growing though lol...

Scalloped edge card blank - Craftwork Cards
Stamp - Saturated Canary Summer - MCH
Papers - Glitz Design Cashmere Dame - MCH
Frame shape - Stampin' Up framelits die
Spellbinders D-lites Fantastic Flourish 1 - MCH

I'm entering my card for the following challenges

**You can now pre-order the fabulous Winter range of Saturated Canary stamps from My Crafty Heart HERE - they're all absolutely gorgeous!**

Morgan's now a lot better, and so far the rest of us have managed to avoid the sicky bug... so fingers crossed, next week the boys will both be at school, hubby will be at work, and I can get lots done!

Hope you've had a lovely weekend... off to whiz round and visit some of your blogs now :o)

Great card, of course the image is fab (beautifully coloured, btw) - but it's your choice of papers that "make" this card; it's so evocative of a summer picnic, perfect! Glad Morgan is better, I'm feeling the need to get things done too but renovations at our house are keeping me both busy and unfulfilled! Donna xx
