Good Old British Summer??

Hiya folks!

Well, I did get my washing dry yesterday, after two days of trying!! LOL. No chance today though. Woke to a grey start, and now it is raining on and off. Back to our normal British summertime weather - ugh!

My card for today is perfect for this time of the year! LOL. I have used loads of elements from the brand new mahoooosive kit over at the Tinker & Co. Blog, named 'Duckie'.

Everything you could possibly want in one kit, all at a bargain price for a short time only. Too much for me to list, but you can read all about it HERE. I have made a card to start with, following a sketch from Crafty Catz:

The only thing I have used that isn't from the kit is my punches/dies, some bazzil and the bling. My punches are all Woodware, the corner dies are cuttlebug. Gems and dimension paint from the stash.

This also fits a couple of other challenges. At Totally Gorjuss the challenge is 'Water', so little Duckie under a brolly is just right for that me thinks! And at Sir Stampalot the theme for this month is 'Summertime'. Yeah - would be nice to get one here in NE Scotland, LOL.

I'm also going to be extremely brave and enter this card in this years Cardmaking and Papercraft Cardmaker of the Year competition, under the Woodware category - wish me luck folks!! (eeek!)

Hi Teri

Absolutely adorable, more words might spoil it. I,love the colours and everything about it.

I keep reading about people having rain, it looks like the whole Country has it except the Fens. We all need it so badly now.

Thank you for joining us at Stampalot Challenge this month and good luck.
