Just my luck..

It's the law of sod isn't it - you indulge in a bit of retail therapy for some new summer dresses then a few days later summer disappears. More October than July here today! Think I may have to go in search of some sun now...

Here is the inspiration piece I chose for last week's Inspiration and Themes challenge at In Love With Stamping - this mug just jumped off the John Lewis website at me - no surprise if you know my favourite colour!



Here's my card based on the mug:


Love love these flowers from the Playful Petals set in the current mini catalgoue - so fun to colour in and cut out! I coloured them with Copics and cut out another flower for the centre to give it some dimension.

Thanks for visiting today, send me some summer if you have some so I can wear my dresses lol!

Gorgeous mug and card - I've got to have a go with those colours. I agree with you re the law of sod! It happens to me all the time. Today looks better though. x

Kate this is stunning and you really are not helping me resist those Martha Stewart punches!

Colours are scrummy too!

Emma said...

SO beautiful Kate, you have coloured the flower and petal so well. I think your turquiose cards have an extra certain something - maybe because it is your colour :D
