Good morning everyone,I hope all this sunny weather is keeping you all happy,I must admit to not coping with the heat but I must not complain,I am happy in front of the fan doing what I love..... CRAFTING 
First of all I have some great and exciting news to share with you all. I have joined the Crafters Companion Die-sire design team. You can imagine how excited I was when I got the email,and nervous at the same time lol. So you can expect to see lots of creations using the crafters companion products on here from now on. I really need to get my craftroom organised though but have hit the ground running at the moment with my first assignment so it will have to wait until I have got my samples ready for that but it is now a urgent task. 

So back to the task in hand for now and my latest make, my DT card for The theme this month is Anything goes/Lazy days and our sponsor this month is  who are giving the winner 7 digi's
I hope you will all join in and have some fun with these beautiful images,every one makes a beautiful card,they are fail safe I think.
I had so many images that I fell in love with but in the end had to make a decision so I went with this adorable image of the mice and bunny relaxing. 
As always I took my colour inspiration from the image and looking at it I decided that it would look good on a circle easel card so it looked like it was on a plate. I used a grand circles die to cut out the card and another circle for the face of it in this lovely purple glitter card and layered it up with some pale green card to give me a base then I added the base picture in a smaller circle which I printed from the House Mouse triple CD. I decoupaged the image using 7 images as I do love to bring these little critters to life as much as possible. Then I used my Xcut alpahabet dies to cut out the z's and the relax from both purple and green card and layered them up to give a shadow effect. I am sorry but I can't remember the name of this die I used to cut the lattuce out but it is a Sue Wilson one. I cut it out of the green bottom circle and put it on top of the purple and added some liquid pearls to give it dimension. Then I used a purple stamped happy birthday and edged it with the purple glitter card. Then I found this beautiful green ribbon from the many boxes I have collected over the years and also this lovely striped button for the centre and used the bow as my stopper. I was very pleased with the finished card and it has become my latest favourite LOL, I hope you all like it to and it inspires you to get crafting. 
Enjoy the sunshine and I will be seeing you more often in the future,take care and happy crafting x
