Weather to 'die' for
First things first, I must apologise for the quality of the picture, my camera is broken and as good as the iphone is it doesn't take the best close up pictures.
The last challenge at The Cardmadfairy had over 130 entries which is absolutely brilliant and as it was my turn to choose a winner I spent a long time out in Blogland, criss-crossing the virtual globe. What a fabulously talented bunch of crafters is all I can say, really inspirational.
The new challenge is to use DieCuts and Punches, which is very handy as my lovely daughter bought me some new diecuts for Mothers Day along with some other bits and pieces. The image is called Julia and she can be found here. I thought she was perfect for the fabulous weather we have been having, every day this week as I leave work I see children playing on the swings in the park next door. An early taste of Summer.
The sentiment is from a set of stamps that came with a magazine. The flowers I punched out of a free set of papers which I also used for the backing and the border is a Martha Stewart punch. I also used the same paper to paper piece her dress.
I am entering these challenges:
