At The Shabby Tea Room this week it's all about having fun in the sun and this week the weather has been gorgeous,not sure how long it will last though!So we need to make the most of it,we've managed to get a couple of BBQ's in this week and just made the most of been in the garden.One of my favourite things to do in the summer when my children were younger was to go to the park and play on the swings with them.How I miss all that now they're all grown up.
I've done this Birthday card for my lovely friend Maria who's on her holidays so hopefully she won't be looking on here and see the card before she opens it.
Maria adores Magnolia so I used Summer Tilda with Bow colouring her in with distress inks and stamped the Magnolia Tree Swing and cut it out with a craft knife.The patterned paper I used was from the Cosmo Cricket Garden Variety and Material girl range .
Where the rope is on the swing I wrapped twine around it to give a more realistic look and a bit of texture. I then scattered tiny Prima flowers around the tree and added some pearls.The Fabulous Friend stamp,oval punch,scallop oval punch and the border punch are all from SU.
Happy woolly things....
