Sunflowers...on a rainy day!

I've been checking out some challenges and stamping some new images today while looking out my kitchen door at a grey drizzly day...(oh and I also made a cauliflower cheese).
So I thought that we were all in need of some how about some Sunflowers!

I used my trusty daisy punch with two colours of yellow card and used some dark wooden buttons for the centres. Check out 'One stitch at a time' challenge which asks us to use our Punches this week.

The papers are DCWV and Wild Rose Sudio. Finishing touch some yellow velvet ribbon. This is a really simple card and one that can be re-created in many different colours.

We took the girls to Marwell Zoo yesterday which was a glorious day. They seem few and far between this August. I will sort out the photos and show you some later.
I'm off to have some tea now and then do some colouring tonight....
Thnaks for visiting...please leave me a little comment...I so love reading all your news.

  10. OMG - you just brought on a flashback moment. I can remember taking the Horror's to Marwell when the little one was about two. He pointed to a hippo, said "nice piggy" and started trying to climb over the fence to get to it...eeeeek!
