Fun in the Sun~

Hello Girls,
I am pleased to say my shoulder is feeling much better, not right yet, but better.
I have had the whole week off work (that's three day's for me!) but with the weekend coming up and a few more days to rest it, by Monday I think I will be able to return to work.

I had a little spend last weekend at "The Glitter Pot", they had a large sale and amongst their items were quite a few Magnolia stamps......So I had a treat!!
Why not? Ha Ha.
Anyway I bought about 6 Magnolia stamps and this one I have used is one of them, isn't she sweet? She just looks so happy doesn't she?

I have used some of my leftover papers from a card I made a few days ago (I don't like to waste anything, and If I like the papers I always want to use all of it!)
The image is coloured with Pro-Markers, but I did not mean her to have such a wishy washy lemony/orange dress, don't know what colour I was going for, I did tyr them out but, It wasn't supposed to look like this. Not to worry at least she looks quite summery.

I have used a lovely LOTV round sentiment. I do have a round "Summer" sentiment which I wanted to use, but I have searched the whole craft room and cannot find it anywhere!!
The flowers are a mix from my box, but the small green ones are Prima Tiny Tots and are very nice to use.
I decided to get my sewing machine out for this card, and glad I did, I think the stitched look is great, I just don't do it enough. I used to sew for a living, I used to run my own business making soft furnishing from home, a long time ago now (pre-kids), but I am a dab hand at making a pair of curtains!!
