Rudof Days for July with a button and a bow

 I'm here with a couple of cards for this month's Rudolf days. I have had a very busy first two days of retirement, with hairdressers, meeting up with friends, a visit to see Dad ( He had his cataract removed last week) and karate grading for 3 of my students. Today has been very lesiurely by comparison 😁. After clearing a little space on my craft table I used a few of the goodies I purchased at Doncaster. The Die is called Ice crystal circle by Amy Designs and was an absolute bargain. The stamps used in the centre are from Hobby Art, stamped with Memento ink.
I added a bow and a button on the second card so I can enter it into this week's challenge at Allsorts as well as the Rudolf Days challenge over at Scrappy Mo's.
Short and sweet today as I am off out into the garden to spend some time with Steve as today is our Pearl Anniversary. Thanks for looking and I will be back in blog land very soon.

Mid month inspiration for Stamping Sensations

Here is my mid month inspiration for Stamping Sensations where the theme is 'The Earth laughs in flowers'. The stamp is from Honey Doo crafts and was another birthday present from my hubby. It comes with a fabulous sentiment about repotting. I stamped the base card with the same stamp in Memento Desert sand, adding a bit of colour wash to it with a paint brush. I coloured the main image with Arteza brush pens.

Clean and Simple at Allsorts

The new challenge at Allsorts this week is Clean and Simple, a perfect opportunity to share this card. I dusted the background with citrus twist, mermaid lagoon and wilted violet distress inks, placing a moon mask over the top after the first dusting. I stamped Inkylicious tiny script in memento lulu lavender, then stamped the Woodware fennel and sentiment in versafine clair ink.
Thanks for looking. I'm hanging on for dear life as we stampede towards the end of term... just 10 more 'get-ups' to go!
