Welcome Everyone

The wonderful world of Zoe is what I hope to share with you all here on my blog. Life isn't always easy, but then that's the case whoever you are. But no matter what each day brings I always try to start and end it with a smile - to look back and know I controlled my day, the day didn't control me!

Nature's Wonder

Hope Wednesday has been fine and dandy for you?  It's been warn here, well warm enough for me to get my legs out! But it's been cloudy most of the day.  I have been rather slow lately, and haven't created much in terms of cards, but I have finished my Rural Rovers article, well ahead of deadline too!

Right thought I'd share with you a card I've made for my dad to give my mum for their Anniversary in August. He hasn't asked me yet but I know he'll be expecting a card.  I've used one of my new Creative Expression's stamps which I stamped onto white card and coloured using the distress inks.  As you can see I'd used the Tim Holtz Distressed Core-dinations card-stock to create a vintage distressed look.  I also used spellbinders dies to create the flower, a 1st for me, but I'm pleased with the effect. My butterfly punch came in handy to embellish this design.

I used Weathered wood and Frayed Burlap distress inks and core-dinations card.  I did think about putting more onto this card as I was worried it lacked something, but I'm pleased I didn't as I feel anything too ornate wouldn't suit mum or dad. Thanks for looking. Take Care Zo x

Lovely card, Zoe, the flower is super, lovely colours and love the embossing and distressing on coredinations card. We are having stunning weather here, the sun has been cracking the pavement but, apparently, that is all about to change and rain is on it's way - and I watered the plants earlier :( Elizabeth x
