The sun has got his hat on.....

Lets all sing together!
The weather is gorgeous here today, clear blue skies, hot sunshine, lovely. Only thing is I cant sit out too long as I burn very easily even with factor 50 on, typical pale skinned Scot! It is a nice change though, the kids have been out playing, hubby trying to finish the garden, landscaping bit he doesnt do plants!!LOL!! Ive been sitting grooming Bobby outside but hes now back in the utility room with his fan going and im at my craft area which is the coolest part of the house luckily, not so great in winter mind you!!

Anyway enough waffling onto todays card which was actually made yesterday in my mad crafty mood that I was in, got loads done so good for me for once, (waffling again, sorry!)

The card was made using the cute tilda from the butterfly dreams set, love that ladybug tooo cute (bit big for real life!!LOL!!)

Ive used magnolia papers and thoroughly distressed them with my TH paper distresser. Same cheery lynne flourish as yesterday and MS punched butterflies..

Image coloured with prisma pencils and blended with sansodor.

Flowers are a mix from woc and some that my lovely blog buddy Sara sent me, thank you sweetie x.
Ive also put a tiny butterfly charm in there to, which was also from Sara.

It has been highlighted with stickles and iridescent medium.

I would like to enter this card into the following challanges,

Wild orchid crafts - shabby chic friendship.
Stampavie and more - more than 3 layers

I think i need to go for a little siesta heheheee

Love and hugs
