jump for joy...


Good morning everyone...did you have a fabulous weekend?, not too rainy I hope, it was a bit soggy here for the whole weekend, its so frustrating having all the new flowers for the decking and not being able to get going with them...Phil planted some but had to come in cause the rain got the best of him...there will be a flurry of activity when the sun does come out though lol, we did head out on Saturday though, had a little mooch around town then to look at some cars with my Dad (he still hasnt chosen which make he would like), then Sunday it was a lazy day with a yummy lunch of poached salmon, salad and hersey royal potatoes followed by fresh berries and tiramasu...yum yum yum...so despite the weather it turned out not a bad weekend...right now my card for today is fro our new challenge at Bunny Zoe's Crafts monthly Challenge...this month our Guest DT member chose the theme of Case The DT Member...my card is made using this super fantastic and perfect for a boy card Magnolia stamp...hes from the Magnolia Once Upon a Time collection and is called Game on Edwin...I loved using him hes fantastic to colour...I used my usual distress inks for him and cut him out so he could jump off the card


I teamed him up with a brand new paper collection from Bazzill Basics called Bazzill Basics 6x6" Multipack - Freedom...these are fantastic heavyweight papers perfect for 4th July, boys or girls cards...you will be seeing more of these I promise you, they are lush to use...I finished my card with a fab bow made with some Gingham Wired Edge Gold Thread Ribbon - Blue, a few buttons from the Big Red - 25g pack and some pieces of washi from the Section SMASH Tape roll...everything I used except the sentiment letters are from Bunny Zoe's Crafts...I made the sketch up as I went along but am entering this for the Papertake Weekly Challenge, Cute Card Thursday challenge and the Crafty Catz Challenge to...I'm going to have a bit of a crafting day today as I have loads to catch up on...whatever your up to have a brilliant sunny day (fingers crossed for you) and if you get some time hop on over to the Bunny Zoe's Crafts monthly challenge and have a look at the amazing work of our super talented DT and see which member you will choose to case...have a good one
