An ickle bit of sun

Well actually a lot of sun today.  Even got the paddling pool out and the shorts were on!  However my card is just a little ickle card.  

We are challenged at Less is More to make a shaped card for this week.  Not a rectangle or a square.  So the thinking cap went on and I kept coming back to the Flowers, Daisy 2 Bigz Die.  I went with Daffodil Delight because it's been so sunny with us lately.  Honestly us Brits are so delighted when we get a bit of sun because we can never tell if it's going to last.  Next week we might be back in woolly warms.  No kidding! 

The card is made up of two layers from the Flowers Daisy 2 Die and 2 circles on each side of the inside from the Circles 2 Die. I stamped my sentiment from Tiny Tags in Daffodil Delight and punched out with the Jewelry Tag Punch.  If you don't already have this set, I'd highly recommend it.  It adds a lot of fun to your projects. 

I finished off the centre with a Rhinestone Brad

After a lovely afternoon relaxing in the sun, we were all off to the swimming pool to watch my daughter race in a local swimming gala event.  It's the first time she's taken part and was very nervous.  At the training when she dived in her goggles came off so she kept stopping.  It was with a huge amount of relief and pride to see her dive in and swim the length of the pool with no stopping and goggles still in tact!  Overall our primary school came second.  So well done to all that took part.    

Wishing you all a gorgeous evening.  Take Care. x

That is one fabulous card. I think you had better hang it from the ceiling because according to the weather man it`s the only sun we`re going to see later in the week.
