20's Cutie


I can't believe I am into the second week of my holiday already!  Where did last week go!  Still I'm nice and relaxed, although the discovery that a swarm of wasps have moved into the loft yesterday was unwelcome - I'm trying to get hold of the pest control man that came and delt with the last swarm we had, I'm not going anywhere near them!!  Thankfully they seem more interested in doing whatever it is that wasps do, I guess they don't turn vicious until later in the year, either way they are not staying!!

Today I have been catching up with the ironing pile, I think I'm winning, but had time to make something inbetween :-D  It may not have been the best thing to do though as the temperatures soared, but it was too hot to go outside especially at lunchtime

Image - In The 20's - ThePaper Shelter (she is so adorable!!) Sentiment - Ladybug Crafts Ink
Card/Paper - Papermania Card Blank; Teal CS; Kraft ribbled CS; MME Papers;  Bo Bunny Double Dot
Other - Pearls from Stash; Velvet Lace - LCI
Tools - Marianne Creatables Florish and Flower Die

I'm really pleased with my first attempt at making this tyod of flower using a Marianne Die - you cut three flowers out, and stick them together, not as easy as getting a ready made one out of the box but great for when you have a bit more time or when you don't have the right colour!!  I think I did OK for a first attempt

Please can I enter my card into these challenges

Before I forget, Kerry from Ladybug Crafts Ink has a summer sale on at the moment and until the 15th August the second stamp you buy is HALF PRICE, and there is 

Thanks for looking, Sue xx
