I hope you have a super day! As many of you know, Jenny likes to make beautiful clean, simple and fun cards, so I had to make something special for her. Hope this reaches you soon.
I've used three challenges to make this card:
- CAS-ual Fridays - CFC57 - where we had to use either acetate or vellum
- Just Us Girls - JUGS141 - super colours
- St Luke's Charity Card Challenge - Our Little Furry Friends
I've kept it really simple - I used the red, white and blue to make a vellum layered doily which reminds me of the Royal Air Force roundel. I stamped each image using Versamark on vellum, embossed them with coloured powders and then simply cut them out. I like the way you can see the patterns through each layer. I stamped this very elegant cat onto white card, cut her out and attached her to the card on top of the doily. I finished off with s simple sentiment.
Stamps: Waltzingmouse - Dainty Doilies Large, Dainty Doilies 2 Small; Inkadinkadoo - Patterned Pets; Uniko Studios - Extra Time
Inks: Stazon - Jet Black; Memento - Tuxedo Black
Accessories: Vellum and card from stash

There's still plenty of time to join in with St Luke's Charity Card Challenge - this month we want you to make a card featuring our furry friends. It's a bit quiet on the blog; we would really like to see your creations - do pop over and join us. This month the prize for our June winner is a set of stamps from Waltzingmouse Stamps - Text-It, so very useful!
The first week of Kathryn's summer holidays has been super. We've had some extremes in the weather with a big thunder storm on Monday and hot, hot days since then. We've been out shopping, to the cinema and just chilling (literally with the air con) in the house. It's been fun!
Today the European Football quarter finals start - we do get to watch the matches over here, but we really do miss the atmosphere! There are lots of sports bars in the States and they show all sorts of games, but there's no excitement or enthusiasm for football (or soccer as they call it here). Jonathan can only watch the weekend matches - which is good as England play on Sunday!! I'm keeping my fingers crossed for an England v Spain final!!!
That's all for now - off to do a bit of mundane stuff - a stack load of ironing!! See you soon.
