I think the only consolation of the dip in temperature since our mini heat wave is that I seem to get more achieved - when it's that hot I didn't even want to spend any time in the shade of my craft room so at least now I might get a few things done! (Of course I'd rather it stayed that hot all summer though!)
Here's a card I made for a very dear friend in America, trying to get over that cards-for-a-man problem ;)
Brown and blue - my go-to male colours (probably should expand my boundaries in that regard!), along with a Hero Arts stamp coloured with Copics.
Do you like the funky background? I picked that up from the fabulous Jennifer McGuire - embossing a piece of coloured card-stock (must have a white core) with the Cuttlebug swiss dots folder, sanding it to reveal white dots, then colouring the dots with markers.
I hope everyone has a great weekend, it's been a fascinating day for a self-confessed news junkie like myself so who knows what the weekend will bring?!
