Miss You Monday – Making My Own Piece of Summery-ness

See larger image

Hey everyone.

I’ve had four days of illness, and I was only really able to get up and about yesterday evening. I was thankful that I was able to have the energy to make a Miss You Monday card for today. After all that time in a dark, germ-infested room, I wanted light and summery-ness. Well, I wasn’t going to get it outside, so I made my own little piece of happiness with this card.

Sometimes I just love Hero arts stamps so much that it hurts! I picked up this fab background stamp a little while ago, and I wanted to use it, but in a slightly different way – a background with a difference. Of course my distress inks were my first craft-comfort after a week of non-crafting, and I turned to my two favourite colours: shabby shutters and broken china. Yum yum.

I’ve been wanting chipboard flourishes lately, and as this was my last Bisous chipboard swirl, i really must buy some when I next see ones that I like.

Thanks for looking.
