Bee Happy



Another quick card from me today, just to get back into the swing of things, I can always find inspiration from Sketch Saturday and this weeks sketch is a peach. There is also a great prize on offer from their sponsors this week the lovely and generous Heidi from Simon Says Stamp.


I have had a fabulous weekend with lots of laughs and cuddles, Owen was an absolute angel went to bed like a dream, but did get me up with a "Boo" at 5.45 Saturday Morning and I was playing football in the garden by 6.30am, every time I visit Richard and Gemma it makes me realise how much I miss living in Rye as soon as I come out of the station it feels like I have come home one day I hope I will be able to move back there. Today it was Bens birthday and we all went down the beach the weather was really kind and the sun shone all afternoon. Now I am really tired but had to get just one card made for the blog, as I am going to be busy with another commission for Crafters Companion that has to be finished by Thursday.



I am still trying to use different colour combos and I wasn't sure how I felt about this one but I think I like it.


Recipe: Tilda by Magnolia from Simon Says Stamp
Colouring Medium - COPICS on Manga Artboard
Papers - Kaisercraft from The Hobby House
Embellies - Roses Wild Orchid Crafts rest from stash.


Will try to visit everyone who has left me such sweet comments this weekend, may not get to you all tonight, but hope I will have caught up by Monday evening.

Thanks for looking
Hugs
