Circles

Taking advantage of a little more easing of restrictions we had a lovely day out at a nearby historic house earlier this week where the gardens had been opened. It was overcast but warm and the absence of sun meant it wasn't too busy - we had a picnic on the grass! A lovely day. Which explains my absence from the blog! It's been a scorching couple of days and although I like the sun, it has been much too hot for me.
I don't have any kids or teens to make cards for but every now and again I get an urge to make 'cute' or 'fairy' cards!
I made this card and tag whilst fiddling about supposedly having a bit of a clear out of the stamps/stencils I no longer use.(Only to make room for new ones!!) The tag came about from an offcut piece where I tried out the blending of the 2 colours.
I'm not sure of I've ever used the whole of this Inkylicious stencil before either.
Just a bit of ink blending using Spun Sugar and Shaded Lilac and a few Inkylicious stamps.

The patio outside is quite shaded in the morning so I have taken advantage and had a sit outside with a cuppa, but it is getting really hot! No doubt there will be an afternoon for me sat in front of a fan at the craft desk (as long as I remember not to use any embossing powder or gilding flakes!)
Have a lovely day whatever you're doing. x

What a stunning card Viv. I love Lavinia and her fairies (as you know), I make many of these cards for all ages as everyone seems to love them. Never ever had one sent to me though.
