A Summers Day



Monday morning and time for my Prickly Pear and Nicecrane DP shares. And before I tell you about today's makes I would like to say a huge thank you to everyone for their kind comments on Saturdays post, you are all so lovely and understanding.


As soon as I saw this stamp set I had to have it........well with a tree and a fence there was no decision to make. So I created a little scene with some hills and sky using Pan Pastels, the hint of sun peeping out form the clouds and this lovely inspirational quote.



And here I have made two cards using the new Jeremy Fisher Wind in the Willows designs from Nicecrane and also gave the new sewing machine which hubby bought for Birthday an outing trying out some of the different stitches. I really do like the earthy colours of these designs and the cheeky fellow which to my mind will work for all age groups.


On the first card I one teamed Jeremy up with some NitWits DP's and Obsession Impressions Bulrushes and dragonflies which are all in the same die set, a Timmy clock and message label. For the second I went with Graphic 45, a Spellbinder frame and twine.

Hope you all have a good Monday.

  1. The PanPastelscene is super as allways! And I am with you; the images from Beatrix Potter are for any age (if only because I love them still...) Hugs, Gerrina

  25. Oh dear, I'm such a bad blogger nowadays Brenda! I'm slow, the computers slow, the broadband slow and never seems a lot of time to craft at the mo. A go slow extension that's driving me up the wall and me trying to do my bit in it so not going to fast either lol! Never mind, hopefully get there in the not to near future. Your cards today ate a real delight, so loving the pretty scene and sentiment of the first and just love the toads. Thank you for dropping by, I appreciate how hard health issues get in the way of our love of crafting. Here's to better days for us all. Take care. Carolxx

  39. Loving these cards Brenda, especially Jeremy Fisher. And you're certainly making good use of your new sewing machine. I'm very bad, I don't think mine has been out for about a year.

    I wasn't online yesterday so I've just read yesterday's health update. Hoping you have a lovely holiday later this month and meanwhile that you have more good days than bad. I think it probably helps us all if we have a hobby we love and blog friends who understand.

    Take care,

    Kat xx
