Have a Sunshiney Day

It looks like the only summer days the UK is going to get ……. again ……. is those we create ourselves, so here’s a bright and summery card.  With this ridiculously wretched weather I need all the bright I can get my hands on.

I went digi today and decided to colour up Penguin Swings – now seriously, can you get any cuter than this?!?  I used the Sunshiney Day sentiment from my Vintage Sentiments stamp set, it was perfect for the sweet image.  I finished off the card with some foamiran flowers.  The large pink and blue flowers are made from my Peony Flower Die Set that I believe will be in stock again both here in the UK at Noor Design and Dies to Die For as well as Whimsy Stamps themselves by the end of the week.  You lot wiped them out lol.

And speaking of restocks, I have another die coming out in the next month or so, and like the peony, will be adaptable to be able to make more than one type of flower.  I love me some value for money!


I coloured this cutie with copic markers:
Penguin: C9,7,5; C1,0,00; R20, 30; YR27, 24, 31 30
Pink: R85, 83, 81, RV02
Aqua: BG57, 45, 53, B000
Green: YG67, 63, 61
Swing: E25, 23, 21


A close up of the flowers.


The paper is First Edition Pretty Posy pad.  The doily die is by Crafters Companion and the tag die is from eBay


I finished off the flowers with some crinkled organza ribbon.  The sparkly centres of the blue flowers are another eBay purchase.  I swear I spend more time on eBay and my Kindle than I do in my craft room!


Enjoy the rest of your week.
