Lazy Days

Good Morning

My Crafty Friends, Followers and Visitors

Welcome to challenge # 8 over at 
The theme for this months challenge is

Favourite Time of Year i.e. Spring, Summer, Autumn, Winter
( Don't forget to tell us which one and why)

You have until  the 29th April  to enter so lets see your
take on this theme.

If you would like to be a Guest Designer
then the details can be found on the blog.

The season that I like the best is Summer, Long days, sunshine
the garden looking its best and hopefully lots of sun and heat.

For my card I have used an image from the House Mouse Triple
cd from Joanna Sheen. Sorry picture is a little dark, camera
playing up.


1. Started with a 7 x 7 card and matted it with  Lilac card
and backing paper from the cd that matched the topper.
Before I adhered them to the card I rounded the edges
and secured a piece of ribbon diagonally across the card.

2. I mounted the sweet image onto another piece of lilac
card and adhered to the card with foam tape.

3. To add a little extra, I added glitter onto the flowers on
the backing paper and on the water on the topper.
( Not showing up but I assure you its there)

To complete I added the sentiment also from the cd and
three pearls in the top corner.

So there you are, my card that depicts summer for me
as looking at the topper you can just image the sun
beating down on those adorable mice.

Until Next Time
As Always
Take Care and Happy Crafting
