Cold Weather? No - Beautiful Days!

This week we have had the pleasure of the company of Lily and Jack from Canberra, and their Dad. It's school holidays there so time to visit the Grandparents!

We have had a few adventures - Lily and Jack have been to Port Arthur and returned safely without being locked up! We have played Putt Putt golf (Llo - Grandfather - won) and the kids went swimming this morning at the pool.  We have been to the Newseum (New Refurbished Museum), watched a lot of videos, went to Llo's club for dinner and ate a lot of special treats!

We also crafted but you will see that later. Lily (10) has also made a card!

This is using a digi from Digital Delights and the cookies and sentiment come from a collection of digis's called Help for Katie. This has been coloured with pencils and SU markers. There is a Marianne heart die cut and the cards are SU Pink Passion and Lucky Limeaide. SU markers were used to colour the sentiment.

We are entering this in the following challenges:
C.R.A.F.T Challenge: photo inspiration - its pink, blue and green and warm and so is the Flamingo in her lovely scarf!
CanYouDigiIt: about your pets (she says she would love to have a Flamigo and be able to dance with it - I just got a demo! Definitely NOT ballet - dag style!)

I made a card too - mine has a window with acetate and uses a new Marianne die cut I have acquired. 

White bazzil card folded for the base; some flowers from the stash; some die cuts and a ribbon with a bit of bling!

Working out how to cut the card was interesting, and then I stuck in the acetate window but I forgot to cut the card for the inside front (not shown but there is a patterned paper over the acetate edges to hide it inside) and had to then work out my place to cut very, very carefully! Duh!

This sentiment is from SU's new set Pursuit of Happiness - I outlined the word happy with red SU pen. The red card is SU Poppy Parade. The red flowers have been hanging around in the stash for ages. The star die cut is from Memory Box.

I will enter this in the following:
ART Card Challenges: I turned the sketch sideways
Paper Pretties: sentiment as focal point.
Tuesday Throwdown: Anything Goes
