Sugar Creek Hollow.....

Afternoon to you all, I'm at home recuperating after my op so at least I have no excuses for not having the time to craft now although a the moment I'm struggling to get my mojo started, today's card is for the new challenge starting at Sugar Creek Hollow and the theme this fortnight is ......Summer Sunshine, at least we have had a lovely sunny July, although I have yet found the time to sit outside and being as it's forecast rain today I shall be crafting and napping today I think.
The papers for this card are called Sunshine from MME and I have them awhile so I'm not sure if they are still available, the stamp I have used is a new one from Crafty Individuals CI 415, Beyond the picket fence. I have coloured in the image with distress watercolour pens.....don't faint I know I always use Prismas but after buying the set in Orlando on my holls. I thought I'd better use them, think I need lots of practice though.
The flowers at the bottom are from another stamp set CI 206 flower Heads, I use this one quite alot for adding flowers to a project as its very versatile I also added crushed glass glitter to the centres. The sentiment banner is CI 407 Words and pictures.



Thanks for taking a peek
