Count your rainbows...


Morning Peeps! And isn't it a fantastic one?! The sun is out and the sky is blue, again! I suspect the day will involve several large buckets of water in the garden for us. :)

I've not done much crafting this week, it's been a bit busy with all things Cupcake, but I did manage to make this, one afternoon when Sweet Cheeks had a rare nap.

I absolutely love this sentiment. It's a quote from a twelve year old l girl and this card was based around using it. I did stamp it, but it came out really badly, so I ended up resuscitating it by hand, and now it looks like it's been written by a child, which kind of adds a charm to the card.

I made the cloud paper myself. I had a bit of fun with some inks, a few clouds I cut out and a dabber. Very therapeutic as it turns out, our Landlord from Norwich, yes Norwich, upset me big style that day. I kept reciting count your rainbows, as I furiously dabbed the paper!

Well that's all from me today Folks, the garden is calling...

Cardstock: Stampin Up!
Papers: SU Inks, dabber and some cloud templates
Image: Funky Hand Craft The Year Away CD ROM
Sentiment: Inkadinkadoo
Colouring: SU Inks and Old Faithful Waterbrush!
Tools: Nesties

Morning Fluff :)
Another be-u-tiful day isn't it?
unfortunately I have to go to work earlier today, so i won't be able to enjoy the sunshine *sigh*

Love this card, it's so bright & cheery. The clouds turned out fabby, so the negative feeling you had cos of the landlord turned into a positive, so as you say this card is a perfick statement :)

Have fun in the garden!
C.S. xx

A very pretty and colourful card, Faye. The sentiment is indeed wonderful, kids thinking amazes me sometimes.
I like the new look on your blog and apologies for not visiting you for the last few days - the sun was shining on my neck of the woods too, so I haven't been much in front of the 'puter either. Take care x
