Sweet Daffodils

Hello Everyone!!!  Today's card is one I made a little while ago but hadn't had the chance to post.  Finally after 2wks of no internet connection because of the Brisbane floods - our cable has been restored!!!  It's amazing how much you miss it when you don't have it!!!  My boys are back at school after the Summer break and I'm hoping life will start getting into some sort of routine again!!

I started with a yellow base and layered with green bazzill and white (punched with the Fiskars Lace Border Punch) and topped with some Basic Grey DP that I found in my stash.  The Daffodils are from Flourishes' Year of Flowers 1 set and has been stamped in Memento Tuxedo Black onto X-press It Blending Card and coloured with Copics (Y21, Y35, Y38, YG11, YG13, YG17, BG0000).  I've cut it out with Large Oval Nestabilities and matted with yellow bazzill cut with Beaded Oval Nestabilities.  All die cutting has been done with my Raspberry Friend (aka the Grand Calibur!).  :)  To finish I added the sentiment from SU's Short and Sweet set and a couple of Kaisercraft Snow Pearls in the corners.


Stamps - Year of Flowers 1 (Flourishes), Short and Sweet (SU)
Paper - X-press It Blending Card, Yellow, Green and White Bazzill, Basic Grey DP
Ink - Memento Tuxedo Black
Accessories - Copics, Large Oval and Beaded Oval Nestabilities, Grand Calibur, Fiskars Lace Border Punch, Kaisercraft Snow Pearls, Foam Tape.

That's all for today, thanks for visiting!!  :)

Beautiful card, and I'm so glad that things are getting back to normal for you. I do however find it funny to see your statement "back after summer break" Here it's been close to -50! lol
