Where's the Sun...??

Where indeed! Well, what another miserable Bank Holiday weatherwise - such a shame for all those events planned. I read in yesterday's paper that we're going to have an Indian Summer so let's keep our fingers crossed.

Today's card features a cute LOTV fairy who is certainly enjoying her summer - love those sunglasses!

Image is matted and layered with Tonic Deco Geometric Layering dies onto Dovecraft DPs. I used Glossy Accents and Stickles to add some bling. The flowers were cut using a Tattered Lace Midi Blooms die.

Pink Star card

Here's a recent birthday make - not yet given but I'm pretty sure the recipient doesn't see my blog - fingers crossed anyway.

This card is very much inspired by a post from Ruth Hamilton on the Tonic blog here. I've done my own version as my star dies are much smaller than the Tonic ones.

I used the Circle Trellis dies from Tonic, the Stars are Die'sire Essentials and the fronds are from the Spellbinders Floral Flourishes set. The flower is made with my Cheery Lynn Daisy strip and the DPs are Vintage Rose collection from Pink Petticoat. Pink Candi from Craftwork Cards.

I'd like to enter the following challenge:
