A Day without rain.......

My fav CD by Enya.
Today has been a beautiful day but really too hot for me around 28 degrees
have had the fan on while I was working.
We never get the weather how we want it do we?
If it ranged between 18 and 24 all the time I would be a happy little vegemite.
The long term forecast for Friday is 14 so it will be back to winter.
DH had to give the peas and beans a drink today after all the rain we have had but 
they were really feeling the heat.

Today I have followed the sketch over at Gem of a challenge.
Really loved it as it came together so well. I shall be using it again for sure. 
Although I have rather put my own slant on it by moving the image down
so that I did not hide the holly branch that I embossed on the back ground.
I agonised over the flowers for ages as none of the colours seemed to fit but then I remembered some glittery card that I have had for ages and they reeally stand out.
The photo doesn't do it justice. 
I coloured the rhinestones with my copic R46 I think.
Am madly into Chrissy cards now as I will soon have to start posting them if I am going to get them all out before Christmas.  The total is around 40 plus so far heaps to go yet.
Am also entering this in Make it Monday where it is always Anything goes. Bless them.

Thanks for dropping in you are most welcome.

  2. LOVE Enya...she is my all time favorite! Your card is truly gorgeous and all the details you've taken the time to include are wonderful. I just recently colored gems with Copics myself. I had no idea they would look so beautiful. They really do look amazing on your flowers!
