In the summertime, when the weather is high

Hi all,
Daisy had a wonderful time at Beamish yesterday, although it rained for quite a bit of it.  She enjoyed seeing the old school and realised that hers isn't really that bad!  I had a lovely day with reception and year 1 on Tuesday, but I have been feeling ill since.  I have had a cold since the weekend, and now I have a headache and yucky throat as well.  I am managing to survive the days with Martha with the help of cold and flu remedies and hopefully it will go soon.  Because of this, I haven't had any inclination to craft, but made this card yesterday with the help of a fab sketch from Feeling Sketchy.  It's my DT inspiration for the challenge this week at CRAFT, who are sponsored by Sassy Studio, Stitchy Bear Digital Stamps, Bugaboo Stamps and Fantastic Ribbons.  Our theme is Summer and this time I went for an image showing what you should be able to do in a lovely summer.  It is Martha's 2nd birthday on Saturday and I haven't had any mojo to make a card for her yet.  I may use this one, so I used her favourite colour, blue and an image by Bugaboo Stamps, which reminds me of her as she loves to pick flowers (usually just the petals though!).  However, if I have time, etc, I would love to make one that is a bit more personal to her.
I would like to enter this into:
Feeling sketchy - fantastic sketch.  I altered the size of the circles to fit the card and to use up a bit of the stripy paper I loved, but didn't have much of!
See you later.



Hi Nikki
A gorgeous card and hope you are feeling better soon take care
