MAWTT Spring into Summer

This week Claire set the theme of Spring into Summer for the challenge over at Moving Along with the Times. There's a colour chart on the blog to show you the colours you can use so please check it out. I've had lots of bother with Mr Blogger over the last few days so I don't want to tempt fate by moving off this post, lol

My card is using two shades of yellow card from Papermill. I stamped a Joanna Sheen poppy image in black on to white paper before adding Distress Ink in Squeezed Lemonade and Mustard Seed round the edges. I mounted that on to the yellow card and added three pieces of Card Candi to the top right corner. I made a simple sentiment saying 'Enjoy' mounted it on to yellow card and set it at an angle at the base of the poppy. I hope to enjoy summer and I do hope you all enjoy it too. It's been a long time coming! lol

My eyes are much better than they were - they stay open for some parts of each day. I'm hoping that my next appointment, with a higher dose, will settle them even more. Thanks for all your kind comments they are much appreciated.

MAWTT Birds or Feathers

Come and join us this week for the challenge of Birds or Feathers, a theme chosen by Jessie, over at Moving Along with the Times.

I've used a digi image of an eagle by Fitztown and coloured it with my Promarkers before roughly tearing it out and inking the edges with Distress Ink. I used three stamps from Visible Image and after stamping them, tore them all out and inked the edges. The 'Live life Now' sentiment was heat embossed with Sparkle and Sprinkle 'Blueberry' embossing powder.

The large card blank is by Joanna Sheen and the pale blue card by Papermill. I embossed the blue card with clouds using an Embossalicious folder by Crafter's Companion. I also added the 'Stormy Sky' Distress Ink to the edges of the mat.

My long awaited hospital appointment was yesterday so I'm hoping that I'll be able to add my card successfully to some challenges - IF MY EYES REMAIN OPEN!

I'm thinking positive and look forward to joining in again.

I'm adding my card to the following challenges:
I Love Promarkers: Anything Goes
The Male Room - Birds
Simon  Say Wednesday  Challenge - Let's Get Sentimental
Paper Minutes Challenge - Blue
