Rainy Days and Crafting

The "summer" seems to be flying by with incessant rain but rainy days make good crafting days!  I was really lucky and won the May Do-craft prize and received a huge parcel full of Wellington stash, lots of papers, toppers, etc. 

Then yesterday needed inspiration to made a different type of card and found myself looking at Ruth Hamilton's http://apassionforcards.blogspot.co.uk/p/tonic-studios.html

I love this little card.  I don't think mine is quite up to Ruth's standard but I was pleased with it!



Used a white linen card blank
Papermania "brick wall" embossing folder edged with pink
Frame cut with X-cut square die
Papers from stash including window box
Flowers cut with two small punches


Now a few of my Wellington cards which I really enjoyed making.  Really good to give to our menfolk but I am going to attempt to make a "girly" card with Wellington some time soon.
