Finally, Inspired!

Hi there,

Where have I been? 

I've been busy avoiding my most loved pastime and it's high time I got back into it!

Here is the first of about twelve cards I need to make for June (seems in springtime a young man's fancy turns to thoughts of procreation.)

It's based on this sketch from Sweet Sunday Sketch Challenge

For my treasured Aunt Pam, who lives in Victoria (brrrr) I made something sunny and warm (just like her.)

I love the sentiment from cas-ual friday stamps "Mum's the Word" set.

The circle cut outs were a bit tricky as I don't have circle punches and they're not quite round, but I think the gemini motif distracts you from that.

I like the sketch design which looks a bit like the sun with a planet in orbit around it.

I would also like to enter this into The Card Concept's current challenge #36.

I believe the white flowers, yellow and hints of teal remind me of the white icing yellow cake and teal/green patterns on the cupcake wrappers.

Thanks for dropping by. I need a push sometimes to get me going again.



  1. Brilliant take on the photo with a super sunny and striking BG.
