Simon Says Do Dawny P's Sketch

It's a wonderful sketch by the sketch queen herself Dawny P this week over on Simon Says.



Now I must warn you that sunglasses maybe required to view my card, it's bright and maybe a touch too busy, I'm undecided on that one!! Are you ready .............








I coloured all the Magnolia images with copics and promarkers, and the sky was chalked in blue. I've built up the layers with foam pads so it didn't look too flat. The sentiment is from the Daisy & Dandelion Masculine range. Papers are K & Co and ribbon is from stash.

I felt like doing a bright card as it's another blustery, showery and stormy day again today. We took a drive over to Bingley this morning and went for a walk along the canal near the Five Rise Locks, the sun was short lived and the heavens opened...lol. Once back at the car we drove on to Eldwick, where Steve's mum grew up, still raining so drove on to Ilkley and pulled up in a parking area with a wonderful view and a fab lightening show...lol, whilst we chomped away on our picnic in the car. Decided to make our way home the scenic route via Wetherby and surprise, surprise the rain and storms cleared and the sun came out. By the time we got home mind it was raining again. Where's the summer gone?? They say August is going to be a scorcher, we'll just have to wait and see I guess. Hopefully my buddy Lorraine will bring the warm weather with her from Malta when she visits the UK in August.

Thanks for stopping by!!
