Summer Days!

Well girls I don't know how some of you manage to work full-time and find time to craft. This is my 3rd day of it and still 9 days to go! I really don't like it but since I don't have a choice I'll just have to put up with it! At least Wednesday is a half day in the Post Office so I had some time to make a card this afternoon. Well I did when I eventually managed to get out of the shop. Just before I finished it started raining really heavily! Even though my car was only a few yards away I definitely didn't fancy going out in it!

I'm really glad to get something made at last. I should probably have done my DT cards but I just wanted to enter the first Penny Black at Allsorts challenge which is a burst of Summer colour.

I think it looks quite Summery, it's certainly nice and bright lol!

I'm also entering these other challenges :-
Bunny Zoe's Crafts :- Summer days.
Friday Sketchers :- Sketch.
Basic Grey :- Stitching.
Crafty Creations :- Summer Lovin'.

I used :-
Image :- Penny Black.
DP :- Basic Grey.
Colouring :- Promarkers andDistress Inks plus precision pen for faux stitching.
Card Candy :- Craftwork Cards.
Sakure clear glitter gel pen for butterflies.
Jewels and flowers from stash.
Now I think I should make a start on some of my DT work.

  7. Morning Kat, well I hope your 9 day shift flies by, if your were busier you wouldn't mind I suppose but sitting in the PO when its quiet must really bug you, knowing you could be doing something you enjoy, can't you take any of your stash to work and do some colouring or something like that?

    love this card....its so bright and cheery, one of the papers remind's me of hundreds and thousands....Mmmmm
