Now for my creation for this week.

I’ve created a lovely summery card today to reflect the weather we are having in Sydney at the moment. It was a glorious day today. I was up early and went for a lovely walk with one of my girls and then to cool off we went for a dip in the pool.


I’ve used Tilda with Dripping Ice Cream from Magnolia’s Pink Lemonade Collection today. My image was stamped onto X-Press It Blending card using Memento Tuxedo Black ink and coloured with my Copic Markers.

The colours I’ve used are: Skin - E21, E00, E000, R20; Hair - E49, E57, E55, E53; Clothes - Y38, Y35, Y32, R85, R83, R81.

Here’s a closer look at the image.


My image has been cut out using the Labels 1 dies from Spellbinders. I’ve used some bright summery papers from Doodlebug Design on my card, There is a couple of Doohickey Tags - Bloomy Tag & Scalloped Tag, some gorgeous flowers & lace from Wild Orchid Crafts and some Shabby White Seam Binding. My card is edges using the Cherish ‘Around the Page’ Punch from Martha Stewart.

Here’s a photo of the tags out.
