Whimsical Flower

Hello Everyone, 
I  have a very quick card to share tonight using one of my favourite flowers from Woodware stamps. This is 'Whimsical Flower'. I have a few of this style of stamp from Woodware and they make a lovely change from Christmas cards!


I've paper pieced the petals with papers from A Nit Wits collection - promises. The remainder is coloured with promarkers. I added a sentiment stamp from Lili of the Valley.

We were lucky enough to get a last minute break in Devon for a few days. We had gorgeous weather and managed to see lots of places, Lands End, St Ives, Bude, and Becky Falls on Dartmoor. I've come home for a rest now! Although, guess who's got a cricket match tomorrow!!

Emma has had a lot of cricket over the last few weeks and there's still more to come. She did manage to hit her maiden 50 last week, finishing on 77 not out...so one very happy little batter!! It does mean that my blogging/card making opportunities are a bit limited!! And guess what we are doing today...yes, another cricket game!

It's been a busy couple of days here. Yesterday, Tom had to go to hospital for an endoscopy. It's the first time he's ever had anything done so he was a bit nervous but the nurses were brilliant.  Today, surprise, surprise...Emma is playing cricket - away at Northumberland! So not much blogging happening around here and I'll hopefully catch up with you all soon.

Cottage Rose

Hello Everyone, 
We have been all over with Emma's cricket but yesterday we had to go all the way to Coniston in the Lake District!  Emma's team won and what a stunning setting it was for a game of cricket and lots of sunshine too. 
After the 3 hour drive home last night, I'm worn out!!
This is one of those cards that has taken days to make...10 minutes here...10 minutes there etc! I finally got it finished, using a Stampendous Stamp called Cottage Rose.


I've coloured it with promarkers and layered it onto green card, just adding a few drops of liquid pearls to finish.
