CPS 114......



This week's sketch on CPS is fabulous! I need lots of cards for the next month for family and friends so this was a perfect opportunity to make a start. I think I may use this sketch for a few more cards too.
I have been using this Hero Arts butterfly stamp quite a bit, I love all the little hearts on the wings. Don't look at my stitching too closely, I am fine doing the straight lines but not so good going around the oval! I used a really old sizzix die for the oval, I haven't used this for years, but I think it works quite well for the sketch. I finished off with some of my favourite prima hydrangeas and some buttons.
Well we are getting on with doing some gardening this weekend, yesterday I stained the table and chairs so it looks as good as new again and today I think I will get the mower out and cut the lawn. Gotta make the best of this sunshine while it lasts.
Enjoy the rest of this bank holiday weekend!
Lots of love
