Did you enjoy Summer?

Hello out there in lovely Blogland. I hope you enjoyed Summer over the weekend and made the most of it. Wasn't it fantastic. I'm afraid I just took my book outside and sat in the garden for 3 days, no housework done or anything. Hot sunshine was just too good to miss and I'm glad I did as it's raining today so all the housework and other to do jobs have all been done.

The challenge over at Tuesday Taggers this week is It's A Man's World and is sponsored by The Craft Barn. I don't do many male cards, they all tend to be girly, but I have just made one for our friends Son's 6th Birthday so I thought I'd enter it this week.

It was a Lily Of The Valley stamp on a Nestability coloured with pro markers. I layered it with a Scalloped Nestie and stamped the background with the free stamp from Craft Stamper last month.

The number was cut with a Sissix Die.

I'm loving these LOTV stamps at the moment and have been experimenting with the colouring so I'll warn you now, you'll be seeing lots more of them.

Thanks, as always, for stopping by and I hope your week is going well so far.

Hi Lisa,
I don't blame you enjoying the sun while you can.
This is a fab card. I love LOTV images and this one is so sweet. Great use of the Craft Stamper stamp to make the background!

The weekend was fabulous wasn't it and I spent most of it in the garden too - mostly in the shade though! Love the card - that's a great image and I'm loving your colouring! Great use of the freebie stamp too.

A perfect card for a little boy. The image is gorgeous (haven't seen anything like it before) and the layout just fab.
Still summer here today - been working in the garden all day.

Wonderful card, Lisa! Gorgeous image and beautifully coloured too. Glad you made the most of the sunshine -I would've probably joined in but was trying to keep busy! By comparison today is freezing! I've been sat here with a fleece on and the cropped trousers are going away again! thanks for joining us at TT this week!

Morning Lisa! This card is what I would have liked to have been doing over the weekend when it was SO hot!! The sunshine has disappeared now from our neck of the woods and we have some of the wet stuff instead!
