Swinging from "Me To You" Card

Sorry Iv'e been away from my blog for a while. Other priorities have taken over and Iv'e been very busy with other things but I'm back creating again at least for the time being. 

Iv'e made a card using a "Me To You" stamp - the  image is of the Teddy on a swing so I thought I would actually make it swing by using some wire and a fastener at the top so he can go back and forth top reveal a message underneath.

The papers I used are from the Papermania Ultimate Die Cut Pack called "Strictly Party".   I chose some soft colours as they compliment the image well.

Hope you like the pictures. I am busy making samples for my Demo's throughout July and August at the moment. The new DoCrafts Creativity Essentials products are out in the stores now. They include "Strictly Party", "Strictly Christmas" the new Capsule Collection which are all greens which I love, "Christmas Tidings" and the vibrant "Happy Days" collection which is all about the 50's. Very on trend at the moment.

I'll be demonstrating this card and other products at The Range in Exeter on Saturday 14th July so hope to see you there if you can make it.

I did say the dreaded word "Christmas" I'm afraid. The companies bring out their Christmas goodies very early so us crafters can get cracking making our cards early. It would have been nice to at least get a summer first though wouldn't it.

Perhaps it will stop raining soon and we may get some sunny weather - fingers' crossed everyone......
