Lets jump

Morning all and here we are now in July 

Where does the time go? Far too fast. Picked another big bowl of fruit
yesterday and it is in the freezer. 

Thank you Lou for your tip for Gooseberry and Elderflower jam sounds lovely. 

I remember picking Elderflowers for a cheats way of making champagne many years 
ago.... another time and another story. 

Here is my card for today

I have used Little Claire Design wavy stamp with the sheep and stamped them onto a
scrap of my coloured background card.

Then the problem the sheep were blue so used pearl drops and gesso to paint
them so that they were white. Gave a bit of texture to the sheep too.

Added a highlight blue around the edge and then

coloured in the rest of the picture with watercolour pencils.

Mounted onto orange paper onto a pale blue paper both out of my huge bundle
of scraps of paper / card.

Then I found a couple of flowers from Craftwork Cards and added those with a bit of glitter in the centers Found a wee butterfly in my stash :)

and added a piece of ribbon at the bottom.

I would like to enter it for the following

Thank you for popping in but before I go I thought I would show you
something old that I made over a year ago and join in with Erika

It is a Hunkydory card for a little one.


These sort of cards have always got a place however I know that
I enjoy the "arty / crafty" cards I make today.

The kit cards have a good place for those urgent cards which are always

Have a good day

Think its a crafty day for me today :)
