Sending Love

Happy 1st July!  Ha ha just joking ... it's the 2nd :-), actually I just nipped in here to re-edit this ha ha!

I made this card for my lovely Andy ... hopefully he won't see this before I give him his card tomorrow :).

I masked off the edges of the white card with masking tape.  And then sponged on Squeezed Lemonade and Spiced Marmalade distress inks.  Then added Barn Door distress ink around the edges.

I really love Memory Box products so was pleased when they bought out their dies.  This bird (Forest Bird) die is so cute I had to have it.  I sponged Squeezed Lemonade, Spiced Marmalade, Barn Door and Aged Mahogany distress inks onto the birds and then flicked some water droplets over to give a nice speckley effect.  And then used some black glossy accents for their eyes.  The heart (CL582) and sentiment (clear stamp from a set I can't remember, sorry!) are both by Hero Arts.

We have been having even more awful weather here in the UK.  You'd think I would have made a zillion cards by now seeing as I can't get out with all the rain.  Well other things have been cropping up.  I hope to have more cards made soon but it all depends what is happening this week.

For one thing I'm getting my phone upgraded tomorrow to the new Samsung Galaxy 3 - yippeeeeeee!!  Can't wait but it will mean I have to work out how to use it over the next few days so I'm afraid my blog might go quiet for a bit.  I will be back soon though.

Thanks for stopping by ...
