Sunny Sunday

It's been an absolutely gorgeous day here in the Essex backwaters, very peaceful and the perfect weather for breakfast and lunch in the garden.

There's a brand new challenge over on the One Stitch At A Time blog. Our theme this week is "Anything Goes" which seems to be everone's favourite and ours too as we get to see so many gorgeous creations.  The main prize this week for a lucky person who uses an image purchased from the Stitchy Bear's Digi Outlet is the set of images used by the Design Team in Challenge #164 and that's over $20 dollars worth.  You can use a non-Stitchy image but your creation will go into a separate draw to win $3 to spend in the store  Don't forget there is always a freebie when purchases are made to the value of $3 and there's over two thousand images all ready for you to buy.  This week it is a Hope Jacare Doodles image and it's gorgeous.

For My DT card this week I've used one of Tami of Gingerloft Digi Stamps designs called Sunflower Collage.

Rather fitting for the sunny day I took this photo.  I change the colour of the collage to sepia tints and gently tinted the sunflower with coloured pencils as I wanted it to look similar to one of the old hand coloured photos from the 20's - 30's. I've curled some simple flowers and added just a couple of leaves, the dies are from Memory Box.  The sentiment was written by Heller Keller and is perfect for this card.  The leopard butterfly came from a kit from Kanban, now, sadly, no more.
