In the Swing.....

Hello folks,

I normally try and blog on a Thursday as it is my day off work, but things took a bit of a strange turn... I have had the sore throat/cough bug that has been doing the rounds for a while now and am slowly recovering from that, but yesterday morning I woke up feeling very strange indeed and - long story short - I ended up passed out on the bathroom floor and spent the rest of the day sleeping, resting and generally feeling horrible.
Not sure quite what happened (no. It wasn't anything to do with drinking too much the night before...!!) but I am feeling better today and have had more sleep and rest, so I thought I would show you a card I made for the TV last time

I used to love swings when I was a little girl (and when I was an adult too..!)  It was always my favourite thing to do in the park, I find it very relaxing.  In fact, I might have to try and track one down.
Any way, this card is done with the girl on the swing stencil and the blooming corner stamp set (I especially love the little creatures in this set)
I started by attaching the stencil to my card, the adding colour with a stencil brush.  I only attached the stencil to the top of the card, so I could lift it away and stamp the flowers at the bottom in place, then I put the stencil back and drew round it - avoiding the flowers.
I coloured the flowers, then stamped a few extra on a spare piece of card and cut them out to add to the scene.
I also added a couple of the crane flies and a caterpillar
Have a great weekend
