Everything is more fun with friends!

Good morning. How are my lovely blog readers today?? Thanks for stopping by! I know your time is precious, so I appreciate all the lovely comments you leave! I am just enjoying the last few days before the summer holidays begin. I know my crafting and blogging time will be severly curtailed during the hols. I will still manage a little bit of time , of course!!

Todays card is a stair fold card which I will be entering into this weeks challenge at The Next Level. Each week their projects look so great but I just have not had a chance to enter yet. All the instructions for this card are found on their site.
I coloured 2 summery hAnglar girls with my usual prismas and cut them out and pop dotted them on the card. The gorgeous polka dot paper is from 'Little Yellow Bicycle' and I am very sad as I only have a few scraps left. Each panel is machine stitched onto the card.
I made the tag, (which is not perfect, but I will stick with for now!) by embossing the sentiment with white embossing powder and then using distress inks, blended the colours to make the background. The distress inks resist the embossed sentiment so the sentiment stands out. I stamped some brown flowers from Hero Arts onto the tag.

Thanks for popping by. Hope the sun is shining with you and have a wonderful day!

thank you for your sweet comment, it made me smile all over my face :P

I cant wait for the legs to get some tint, what do you say - should we challenge someone to post a pic of their white legs - and a prize to whomever gets the greatest tan? Haha.. Know I would lose bigtime anyways.. ;)

I'll be back soon, for inspiration and updates about the yummy candy! :)
