Sunshine on a Rainy Saturday...

Our weather is shocking so far this weekend.  We are up North at our friend's bach ( Holiday Home) and it has been a wet and windy day.... I brought my laptop and some limited crafting supplies and this morning made a little bit of sunshine on a rainy day....
Card Kit fun


Included in my limited supplies was a couple of kits I purchased ages and ages ago.  They are packs with various papers, stickers, embellishments and card in different colours.  This card came from the Yellow kit.  The Sunflower is a PSX sticker.  The Happy Birthday was embossed onto vellum and the rest was all part of the kit.  I cut the papers to size- used a gold calligraphy pen to edge the white card.  I used my Tim Holtz ruler to make the holes around the yellow paper.   All came together nicely.  This weeks challenge over at Wee Memories is Anything goes... so I'm entering this one.

I also managed a couple more cards.... this one from the Brown Kit
Penny Black Paper

and had a play with colouring using Hero Arts Peeking Posies..
Peeking Posies

I I used Copics, watercolour pencils, gel pens and a glaze pen.   The sentiment is from a Penny Black set

Here's what the weather's like

a great day to stay inside and read and craft... ( and check out a few blogs! thanks to Michael and his 3G internet card)

Here's hoping the rest of the weekend is better.

Cheers

Hi Dawn! I'm just catching up with blogs now...You've made such wonderful cards! I love the sunflower sticker and the different techniques you tried.

Mother Nature hasn't been kind to us, either! Lots of thundershowers and lightning. Very un-Hawaiian weather!
