Hi Blogettes - so yesterday was the longest day.... the start of the summer... OK who forgot to tell that to the weather! I mean its quite warm here today but we have not seen one sniff of the sun! I know its a bonus that its not raining... but I know it won't as I've put all my plants in the garden now which usually kick-starts a drought!

It was sunny yesterday though - I was inside for most of it at the Stamp Magic show at the Dome - typical huh? I had a great time. I met up with quite a few people who I know and had such a laugh. I met Bev and duly handed over the cake! Boy can she drool.... anyway while discussing a few, ahem 'issues', with my distress ink painting I got plonked in a chair on the demo table! Yipes! I mean this was in front of PEOPLE!!! Anyway with Bev's spare water brush at my temple and one arm up my back I cracked it! I also made the ladies watching have a laugh. I think they realised that if this fool (me) can do it anyone can! So I hope you enjoyed the cake Bev.

So onto my card for this weeks challenge over at Cute Daisy May I set the challenge this week to include animals on your card. The girls really came up trumps - but then again they always do!

So my little effort, little DaisyMay cuddling her puppy! After I'd coloured her dress a nice deep red (very summery!) I wondered what paper I could use! A quick delve in the cupboard led me to some Basic Grey Scarlets Letter. So that some red paper, black card, Prima flowers, charm, bling and an Autumn Leaves ticket stamp I was done! Daisy May has been Copic'd ;-))

So that's my effort - come over and take a look and come and play. You don't need a Daisy May to play, the winner will receive a free download.
