Lazy rainy day

Well as it's such a miserable morning here in the West Midlands I decided to do a bit of housekeeping on the old computer. Well the TV licence had to be paid and of course then I got sidetracked looking at crafty stuff, as you do!!
So while I'm about thought I would share a card I made for my dear friend Ann last month. Somehow I forgot to share it at the time but better late than never. Ann did receive it on time though.
I know it's a box but it does fold flat to become a "card".
I love making these cards and they are far easier to make than they look but so pretty. If you look back I think I posted some simple instructions on an earlier post. Funnily enough it was a miserable day weather wise that day too he he!
I based the colour combination around some beautiful paper I came across in my stash and I think it worked well. The large flower is a stamp, coloured with copics, I picked up reduced a while ago and the pink ones are cut using a Sue Wilson die. The butterfly is a spellbinder.
Well it's looking like a day crafting if the rain doesn't stop but that's no hardship. Hopefully if will improve tomorrow so that we can attend the Cheese & Pickle Festival at Coughton Court in Warwickshire.
Until the next time

  1. Same weather here Pat and thick fog on an off all day as well.

    Your exploding box is so pretty, I keep meaning to try one of these but somehow never quite get there.

    Hope you have a good weekend.
