All on a Summer day

The Bumblebees, Bees and Butterflies all love my Buddleia
I took this early morning as with the heat they are not very active during the day.

This was taken at about (9pm) just showing the smoke in the air.
Tasmania is taking a heavy pounding from fires caused
by a dry thunder storm the other week.

The smoke has completely obliterated the mountain which is usually visible
over the foot bridge.

Continuing my clear up of my craft room I am making a real effort to use
all of my stash some of which has not seen the light of day for years.
This card has brought out leaves punched with the Beech leaf.
The flowers were stamped with an Artee stamp probably over 20 years old.
I found a scrap of Copic blending paper to stamp these 5 out and
coloured with my copics than fussy cut.
The blue gingham paper was hiding in a packet of scrap papers.  
It reminds me of Mum's best pinny.
I finished it off by using a glitter brush on the flower centres.

Am sharing this with:

Hope everyone Down Under  has had a good Australia day

A very glittery Christmas card

A very Happy New Year to everyone.
Especially to Hazel and all her Design Team at

Here is the last card that I scrambled to make before the 25th.
Since then I have found at least 2 hidden under the MESS on my desk!!!

The holly leaves were sitting on the table so I went with them
and some green sparkly card stock.
There is glitter around the border where I stuck down 3m DS tape
and sprinkled the glitter over it. 
The berries are pearls coloured with Copics.

Today I have begun a massive clear up in my craft room.
All very well but truth is I still do not have the stamina to keep 
going for too long have to have a break then tend to get side tracked.
