Long time no blog! I've been busy with Connor, last few weeks of college and he gets a bit stressed with finishing all his assignments and I've been a bit stressed making sure he gets support again next year. This happens every year I guess I should be used to it by now, but anyway everything has been sorted now!
This week over at BBTB2 our wonderfully creative Susan chose the cut which is the phrase Sunny Days from the Celebrate With Flourish cart. As I don't have this cart I used Create-A-Critter which has the phrase  on too!
My card is 6x6" and I started with the white base and then took two pieces of card , one blue dotty and one piece of lemon pearlesentcut at 6x6 and I cut them from the corner with my paper trimmer to produce the 'sun rays' and paper pieced on to the card. The lemon pearlescent is embossed with CB folder Divine Swirls. I cut a 3" circle using Plantin School cart in lemon and embossed with a QK folder and offset in the corner of my card for the sun. The umbrella silhouette is from A Childs Year cut at 3 1/2" in black card and Sunny Days from Create-A-Critter is cut at 1 3/4" in black and the layer in pink. Lastly I found these itty bitty pink shell beads in my stash and added them to finish off.
I really enjoyed making this as it made me feel all summery unlike the weather we're having here at the moment in the UK!! Rain rain and more rain! I think we had our summer in April lol I do hope it comes back soon!
Don't forget to pop over to BBTB2 and  see the fabulous projects the DT have created this week and as always we'd love you to join in with the challenge too!
Hae a lovely week everyone and thanks so much for popping by!
