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!

Inspired by Peter Rabbit.

What a wonderful day we have here in Somerset - I'll hold my hand up and admit I've spent a decent amount of time sat up the garden, reading my book with a cuppa on the go. However I want to craft all the time and not be stuck indoors on beautiful days like today so I have purchased one of those laptop table things, that is like a mini table with legs that sit either side of your lap. Perfect to use up the garden when I'm sat on my bench! Crafting in the sunshine is fantastic.

Anyway wanted to share this card with you all;

I've been inspired by all of the Beatrix Potter shows on TV, and just had to get out my CD's again to craft with the adorable Peter Rabbit. A while ago I started taking decoupage sheets to bed with me to cut up while I watch the TV in the evening. I popped all of the pieces into envelopes not to lose them. This meant I could get on and put the card together fairly quickly.  I've done this for many of my CD's, I've a basket full of envelopes holding cut up decoupage! Planning of working my way through them.

I kept this card simple, I wanted the main image to be the main focus of course, but I couldn't resist adding that complementing red, along with my buttons! I added the PR initials but decided against a specific sentiment as I reckon this could be used for many occasions.

I used -
Coredinations card
Centura Pearl card
Peter Rabbit CD-ROM
Collall glue gel & all purpose glue
Bakers twine.

Enjoy the rest of the day, hope it's sunny where you are!
Take care Zo x

Your card is very pretty, I love all the Beatrix Potter images and bought the CDs ages ago but have never used them. Your lovely card is making me think I should dig them out.

What a fab idea to sit in the sunshine crafting, I have been having a lazy afternoon making a pile of stamped images I coloured some time ago into cards. The trouble with this is that all the cards are starting to look alike, I need to shake-up my imagination!

Have a great weekend Zo, I hope he sunshine lasts for you.

I love the idea of cutting up your decoupage in bed, think my Hubby might have something to say if I took anything other than a book!!
Your card is gorgeous. I just love Peter Rabbit.
The sun didn't get out here until about 3pm and it's misty again now so not quite sitting out weather. Here's hoping for the weekend though.
Hope you have a good one.
hugs Lisax
