About Me

Welcome to my blog

I started this blog in April 2012 so I could join Challenges. I am now on some design teams. I hope you like my cards. I started stamping in 1995 but my cards are still mostly cute.
Thank you to those who have joined as followers and to those who comment.
Unfortunately because of spammers I have had to put moderation on the comments. I will approve them as soon as possible, this also means I don't miss any.
I don't always get a chance to reply to all comments but I read them all when I approve them and I really appreciate you taking the time to give your comment.

Outlawz Sunday Songs and Rhymes - Summer Days are here at last

Outlawz Sunday Songs and Rhymes

Our sponsor is Alex Syberia Designs

Be Inspired by the song

Summer days are here at last,

Days of school are in the past,
Summer skies will turn to grey,
And summer's warmth will fade away,
Autumn comes and leaves fall down,
Winter comes, snow covers the ground,
Spring comes and brings new life,
And ends all of the winter's strife,
All the seasons come and go,
From the summer's heat to the winter's snow...
Katherine Knight

I was inspired by the title Summer days are here at last.

I used  papers and coloured daffodils from Digital Scrapbooking Studio First Signs of Spring by Ilonka Designs. 
Alex Syberia Designs digi stamp Daffodils which I coloured with markers
We are 3 sentiment from Harvest sentiment set
Added dragonfly charms, dragonfly brad and butterfly brads.

I hope you will go over and see the lovely work by the design team and join in the challenge.

I followed sketch 569 at Try Stampin or Not on Tuesday

What a pretty card. The daffodils on the smaller (front) panel are wonderfully reflected on the line of them on the left hand side--very clever! Thank you for joining us for this challenge at Try Stampin' on Tuesday and look forward to seeing you again soon!
