After a couple of days of being absolutely soaked to the skin, today has faired up and the sun has appeared if only for a short while. It is certainly not warm by any means but at least it is dry. I do hope the weather is better where you are.

My card today is for a young mans graduation. I love the new Me to You range, so I have adapted it for the occasion.

I have used the free stamp from Creativity mag, Promarkers, PM Capsule blueberry pie papers, X-Cut and Woodware star punches, I made the little mortar cap myself.

No card tonight, but I thought I would share this with you. Today the weather here has been wet, a little sun and very torrential showers. On my way back from my daughters this evening we had a thunder storm and hailstones. The picture below is my front door ... can you believe it is June! the temperature is only about 9 degrees, so chilly to say the least.

This photo was taken about 7 o'clock and it is now 9.30 and it still hasn't melted.

I hope tomorrow is better and that I get time to make a card.

Less is More

It's been a busy week so far. I had my dad at the hospital today for a check up and it is good news. His tumour has reduced considerably with the radiotherapy. We are all delighted at this.

I have made a very quick card for Less is More challenge which is monochrome this week. I didn't think I would have time but it is amazing what can be done when you put your mind to it.

I have used a free PM dots embossing folder with Creativity mag, Sizzlits hearts and Fiskars tiny hearts from border punch. The butterfly is X-Cut punch and the gem is a little nail art gem from the pound shop.

Our challenge this week is:-

More Than One Fold

This week we are also introducing our new DT members.

So welcome ladies.

I look forward to seeing your creations.
