Hello - what a beautiful sunny afternoon it is. Well it is here! It's fairly warm in comparison to some recent temperatures, though it's not quite warm enough for me to read up the garden just yet!
I'm sat here with the radio on, Bristol Rovers are away at Rotherham so I will no doubt be shouting at the radio, cheering my boys on.
I thought I'd share a card I've made to give my friend and her husband for their anniversary later next week.
I've used 2 sets of Sheena Douglas's stamps - firstly the church stamp from the sketchy series and the poppies from the Paint fusion range. I've had some lovely comments about my recent card I made for my dad using the poppies in the traditional red. I saw Sheena mention poppies in different colours such as blue so I researched and found there are definitely blue poppies - Himalayan Poppies! My friends are like me, Bristol Rovers through and through and as such we don't really do red so I wanted to do something different for them. I wanted a Spring-like card so coloured the stamp to show leaves growing on the tree while still trying to keep a soft tone so the background didn't over take. I used the masking technique once again.
I know some of you are friends with me elsewhere so have seen this but I thought I'd also share a picture with you of the new me! I had my hair cut yesterday and had it chopped off! It was longer at the back but I had it all cut off to a short bob that falls just below my ears and then I had gold/copper streaks put through the dark brown to break up the block colour. I also picked up new glasses!
Take care and enjoy the rest of the weekend.
