Heat has gone

Afternoon all

Well I have to say today I can get back to "normal" these last few days have
been so very hot that I just could not do anything. 
Sat down, stood up, moved from one place to another but it was far too 
How was it for you??

Glad to say today it is much more normal temperature but we could do with rain. 

I hear some places have had rain, so fingers crossed it will arrive here. 
Been out and doing gardening - well fruit picking to be honest. 
Trying to get my fruit before the birds do. 

Well here is a card I made just before the heatwave. 

I have used my screen printing - masking off an area from a screen to make the 

This is the unit before I start

Did the printing (sorry no photos) cut down the image and mounted onto mirri card
then onto a Craft work cards paper on a blank white card. 

Added a sentiment of Birthday Wishes.

I would like to enter it for the following 


I hope that the card will meet with the critia for the above challenges

Think that a Dandelion is very much an English flower and if it was not a "weed" 
I am sure it would have won a Gold at Chelsea Flower Show.

Here is my photo of todays pickings !!!

This was the temperature indoors yesterday !!!

Anyway best dash now and chase off those birds again

  5. Gorgeous card Pen, I absolutely love dandelion 'clocks' they are so pretty.
    Like you I have had enough of the heat now, we had thunder today and about 5 mins of rain but within ten mins of it stopping the puddles were dried up and the heat was back Lol

  8. Well, it might sound weird but I love Dandelions, their puffy heads full of this little seeds are hard to ignore, to bad they are considered unwelcome weeds in our gardens.
    But your sweet card is a beautiful tribute to this humble flowers, it's seeds floating on the breeze.
    I never heard of this tool you used to create this lovely card, I really got curious, the results are amazing.
    Thank you for sharing with us at THE FLOWER CHALLENGE, hope you play again soon.
