Books and Text

Hello, good morning everyone and happy weekend. We're having some hot weather over here again as weather forecasts temperatures rising to 37C again.. I am not complaining though  .. Will be off to the beach this afternoon and then in the evening we're invited over by friends for a bbq. So a full fun day yet again yay!

Today I have a card to show you which I made for the new challenge starting today at
 and the theme for this week is BOOKS and / or TEXT 

 For my card I decided to use this sweet image from Crafty Sentiments which I coloured with my promarkers and then used papers from a Papermania paperpack and some dies, twine and pearls to finish it off. 

Quite a simple card today, my mojo just wouldn't cooperate even though I got me some new stuff to help me out ;P .. he he the excuses I make to buy me new goodies ... ... well, I've been wanting to get me some twine as didn't have and the butterflies die too, they were in my wish list but the puffy thinking clouds .. well those I was so lucky to win from LEJ Designs Challenge  Woo ho thank you Lindsay and girls for the prize and the beautiful card :D 

I hope you can join us this week and don't forget to have a look at what the other DT girls did for lots of inspiration.

Hi Dora

A fabulous card.

Love the little thinking cloud! A great touch.

I managed to pick these up reduced in our local craft store but haven't put them into action yet (not much call for them on wedding stationery LOL!!). But thanks for the inspiration .. hopefully I will get to play with them soon.

Hope you are having a good weekend.

Love Jules xx
