Hot Time in the Summer & Our Weekly Spotlight


Hi and Good Morning :)  Alison here today.

Thanks so much for sharing all your wonderful Celebration creations with us last week, there were so many special entries that our DT struggled again to narrow it down to 3, so we have chosen 5!  This week we loved seeing in order of entry:


Congratulations ladies, it was a pleasure visiting your blogs - please contact us for your Weekly Spotlight Badge.



Now I admit to getting in a tizz with my card, and this was my second attempt.  I tend to favour really cool colours or darker shades, and I have quite a stash of discarded bright papers that hurt my eyes! lol :D

Anyway, even though this was out of my comfort zone, I really enjoyed making it once I got stuck in, and I only just noticed it matches our blog!  

My card base is 6 x 6 inches and I layered Dovecraft papers onto buttercream Bazzil cardstock and before sticking the layers down I tucked under the medium sized Doily Stacker Circle and the Lace Light Deco Border.  I added the Tropical Flourish and Small Butterfly to the side panel and made the tiny cute flowers from the Darling Daisies Die (I LOVE these daisies!)

All dies used on this card are:


I cant wait to see how you interpret this weeks challenge and there is still plenty of time to enter here.  Dont forget there is always fresh and inspirational projects uploaded daily by the rest of our talented DT over on our Cheery Lynn Designs Inspiration blog too.

Have a smashing week and thanks so much for visiting today,

Alison - aka 'xtglx'
