Summer Blues!

More like Summer Greys here, can't see more than a few metres from my craft room window today, the mist is right down around me.

 Hello everyone, my card today have used the Penny Black stamp 'Whispers'. Have admired this stamp on many a blog and always been going to buy it and never seemed to happen, not sure why cause usually when I see something I really like I want it, like yesterday! Anyway I have it now and I love it. Paper-pieced the flowers to match the papers and added some small gems and glamour dust to the leaves.

Penny Black 'Whispers'

Papermania papers matted with cream card
Martha Stewart lace border punch
Nestie large Rectangle dies
Gems and Lace from stash

Pin made from pearls and metal pin flowers, a touch of Pinflair glue to keep it altogether

The weathers exactly the same here Carol, we had a glimpse of sun Saturday and that was out lot before the rain returned.

The hay is stronger and thicker than it's been for years, but they just can't get to cut it, total reverse of last year when it didn't grown for lack of rain. Both give the same result, expensive !

Anyhow, I didn't come to moan about the weather, I came to look at your lovely card. The tone on tone works beautifully with the pretty PB image.

Thanks so much for joining our 'Summer Blooms' challenge at Penny Black and More this month. And also our 'In Bloom' theme at Allsorts.
