Lazy Days of Summer

Morning! Sorry I didn't post over the weekend. Life just got in the way!! My middle boy Bryce has been unwell since Sunday. I took him to the doctor yesterday and he has been diagnosed with a viral throat infection and has been booked off school until Thursday!!

So anyway, just a quick post this morning. The card I am posting today is one I made to take part in the Cute Card Thursday challenge which is "Lazy Days of Summer". I also wanted this to be part of the "friendship" challenge over at the Magnolia blog, but I was a week too late. DAH!!

Orange is a lovely summery colour, so that's why I chose it as the base colour for my card. I really enjoyed colouring my beautiful Magnolia in these summery colours. I have been making a lot of cards lately, a friend of mine is opening a shop here in Dundee on Saturday, and I am going to be putting some of my cards in her shop. Needless to say, I have been feeling the pressure a bit this month to make enough "stock". This card I made just cause I wanted to, and I enjoyed the therapeutic feeling I felt while making it. Anyway, enough of the waffle. Here is my card and closeup!!

The Copics I used are: E00, E11, E21, E31, E33, E35, E37; YR02, YR20, YR23, YR68; R02, R20; Y38; BG10, G07, G21.

I also wanted to say a big thank-you to those that leave comments. It really makes this blogging thing so much more fun!!
