A Field of Summer Flowers



Sadly Summer is well and truely behind us in Australia, but I can't complain too much because we have had some lovely Autumn weather, sunny days, cool nights and generally its nice to experience a change in season. However, this card does remind me of a summer's day...I have used all Stampin'Up card, paper, ribbon and stamp. The only item not SU is the green centre of the flowers which I picked up at K-Mart. I enjoyed working with this sketch from Card Patterns and I think it could be a very versatile sketch...particularly for male cards which I have seen everyone having a go at and making some lovely cards too. I just couldn't muster up the enthusiasm for a challenging male card tonight. I seem to have alot of difficulty with them...
I am still on my quest for early nights this week as my cold is still hanging onto me with determination and believe me having cold symptoms while trying to survive a day with 26 little cherubs is a really BIG challenge! Maybe more early nights will strengthen my immunity...and get me through the rest of the week. The school day is so jam-packed I barely have time to breath...and neither do the kids. Their day is full as we try to use every minute for quality learning experiences, although some days it just feels like organised chaos, and today was definately one of those days! I hope your day was a little more peaceful than mine and heres hoping they get a little more peaceful as the week develops.
Finally, thank you for your lovely comments on my cards. It is so nice to share cards with other people who love card-making and even nicer to hear what they have to say about them. Enjoy your evening...
