Sunflowers mean summer!

Sunflowers play a big part of spring/summer for the Crafty Roo family, Little Lady spends hours sowing seeds and  watering them and watching them grow. We plant far more than would ever be needed for our little garden, but at least it gives us "spares". Then when the flowers open they become squirrel food right through the autumn/winter and if any are left in the spring we feed them to hedgehogs.

This year we are trying a new variety called "Giant Russian" the only reason we HAD to have these was because on the front of the packet the plant was taller than a man - and of course to a 3 nearly 4 year old that's all that matters, not the part that said hard to grow!

Anyway, enough waffling's, here's a lovely summer card......

To make this card I cut two small squares of white card and stamped the detailed Sunny Doodles stamp in the center, coloured it in using Distress Inks and a waterbrush, stamped "With Love" around the edges, distressed around the edges,  then added UTEE randomly around the edges.

These squares were then mounted onto Kraft card which had been distressed around the edges. The using a DL Kraft Card for the base card I added a panel of patterned paper which was 1cm smaller than the DL card and attached the two squares.

To finish of the card I added large buttons to the center of each flower and a piece of knotted string, then around the the center of the card I wrapped some string and tied it.

I hope you like our stamps, if you do why not check out our website
