Daring Cardmakers Challenge

Morning Folks...well I am cracking on with all the stuff that needs doing.....and have even managed some challenge cards....the challenge this week on Daring Cardmakers has been set by Jo and is.......

or NOT....well I think it is definitely more of the NOT....we have had brilliant sunshine...freezing wind..monsoons and hailstones and yes that was all in the space of one day....oh please can we have our summer weather back......I still have my vest on and yes it's still tucked into my knickers plus goodness knows how many other layers.....what happened to shorts and T shirts.

Background: DCVW Self Adhesive Cardstock
over stamped with
Hero Arts "Artistic Border" Stamp Set
Hero Arts "Hello Circles" Stamp Set
Image: Penny Black "Hugs" Collection
Ribbon: Maya Road
Flower: Hero Arts "Share Laughter" Stamp Set
Sentiments: Hero Arts "Share Laughter"
Hero Arts "Tiny Alphabets"
Basic Grey White Choc Chip Stickers
Papermania: Cardstock Stickers...Black
I was well and truly stumped with this one....as I don't have any stamps that are weather themed...and suddenly the weather lent a helping hand....one minute the cubbyhole was bathed in golden light from the bright sunshine outside and the next minute...it was so dark and grey I had to put the light on.    OK I know my background doesn't exactly look like rain or sunshine....but you need to half close your eyes and use a little imagination.......well the sun is out this morning but for how long....was up with the birdies...washing is out...Mr Dyson and I have had a quick whizz round.....and "The Budster " and I have had our morning stroll so it's off  to the cubbyhole....hopefully today will see everything crafty done and dusted....catch up with you all later...Hugs Kath xxxxxxx
