Challenge: Whatever the Weather!

Wow – well, thanks to my computer trying to outrightly reject the new blogger layout I am finally able to  post this weeks new challenge (sorry for the delay!).

The challenge for the next fortnight is entitled “Whatever the weather” – perfectly appropriate if you live in the UK at the moment as we’ve certainly be having some “weather” here these last few days!!

For my card I went very “me” in that it is predominantly Pure Poppy and uses {one of} my all time favourites stamp sets – Scattered Showers.  I have said before but it’s worth saying again…. those new inks are just GORGEOUS.  It makes me happy just looking at them!!

Card Deets:
{Cheer Up Buttercup}
Stamps: Scattered Showers
Ink: Pure Poppy
Cardstock: Pure Poppy, Stampers Select White, Beautiful Blooms pp 
Dies: Heart Border, Label Basics, Scattered Showers.

“Hmmmmm…weather…..gotta admit that this challenge had me a little stumped for a while until I looked outside my window and inspiration struck:

Card Deets
{You Make Me Smile}
Stamps: Signature Greetings (Papertrey Ink)
Ink: Tuxedo Black (Memento)
Cardstock: Orange Zest, Stamper’s Select White, Lemon Tart (Papertrey Ink)
Accessories: Various ribbons in shades of Lemon Tart, Harvest Gold and Summer Sunrise (Papertrey Ink)

Yup, it was actually sunny! Right now that seems like a rarity!

This sun was super easy to create with a scrap circle of cardstock and scrap pieces of ribbon. The sentiment seems so fitting for a sun; in fact, I may dedicate this card to the sun in the hope that it will come out a little more *wink*

And here’s Kate: “Well this non-stop rain and flooding made me leap towards a set that shouted sunshine at me, this card came together in a flash and makes me dream of cocktails on a beach where it’s NOT raining!!”
