Happy Father's Day to all the lovely Daddy's out there and especially to my own who I think is just the best one! (In my opinion anyway! lol)
I have to share a quote from a friend about our weather that I thought was both funny and true! "I think my calendar must be wrong - it says it's June, but when I look out through the window, it's telling me it's October!" And that's all I'm saying about the weather!
It was my parent's wedding anniversary yesterday - they have a big one next year so it was a quite one this year, but we all went out and had the whole family together anyway. My little niece and nephew were there and we were talking about flies. I asked them what you would call a fly that had no wings and Holly (4) replied with "a spider!". Ryan (5) turned to her and said "No Holly, an insect only has 6 legs!" I almost fell off my chair! If he had've said that arachnids have 8 legs I think I would've!
Anyway, time for a new challenge with the Pink Team at Eclectic Ellapu and this week our lovely Asha is hosting and the challenge she has chosen is...
Celebrate Summer Sunshine!
So at least I'm getting to see something summery, even if it's not out through my window! (see above)
Here's what I did:
The one I made the other day got me in the mood for making easel cards, so I made another one!
The image is Patchwork Bunch Of Balloons by LOTV and I have coloured him with the following copics: Bear; E39,37,35,33. Balloons; Y17,15,13,B95,93,91,RV29,25,21,V000,RV13,11,10,YG95,93,91. Sky; B000,0000,C1,0.
The papers are Echo Park, Here & Now. I have used a multitude of dies - Spellbinders Decorative Elements Grand Nestibilities for the base. Go Kreate XXL circles. Spellbinders Big scallops circles and standard circles. Pearls and ribbon are from my stash.
The inside/base of the easel has a mini easel as the stopper and the sentiment is by LOTV.
So go take a peek at what the rest of the DT have created at Eclectic Ellapu!
