Anyone for Lemonade

Morning Peeps and a Happy Friday to you all, and if your in the UK it's going to be a glorious 24 degress, woo hoo!

Well, I don't know about you but I am completely whacked! I have had this week off work to do some decorating and I am shattered. I have satinwood painted 7 doors, yes 7, the skirting boards and banister and my little arms are aching from holding the paint pot! There has been no access to my craft room, why is it that everyone see's my craft room as the dumping ground. Good job I was organised with my card for this week prior to the bomb hitting.

My hands are like prunes from washing the paint off. For some reason at the end of Day 1 I thought it would be a good idea to squeeze my little roller out in the sink, ummmmmm, it was like I was wearing white gloves up to my elbows and ummmmmm satinwood paint, whoops, this doesn't come off with a bit of fairy, oh no, so I went to turn the tap off, whoops, tap now covered. This went on for a while until I found the turps. Anyway for some strange reason I had forgotton all about this last night, on Day 2, and I did it all over again, lol. It's a good job my painting is better than my clearing up. Anyway enough of boring you, here's my card for today. She is from Belles and Whistles and is called "Anyone for Lemonade", available from Teresa at Crafts and Me. I love these stamps.

The Design papers are Basic Grey, distressed with my making memories tool and inked with Walnut Stain distress ink.  I then added star dust stickles. The image is coloured using my gorgeous copic markers, just love these.  I made the flowers using several different punches and again added walnut stain distress ink and stickles and a little button to two of the centres.  The leaves are cut with Quickutz and again distressed and stickled.  I have added little flat back pearls from  my stash which I have coloured using my copic pen.

Have a good weeken everyone.
