Sunny Days

 Hello Blog viewers

I thought as today is such a lovely sunny summers day, I would show you a card I stitched which I think looks like a summers day.

The pattern I found in a Hobbydols book No101, and the topper is from a Sarah Kay die cut sheet.
Once I stitched the pattern and the beads onto the card I glued the topper onto the centre.

I covered the shaped card (which I have had for years) with yellow gingham paper. I used a promarker to go around the edge of the stitched card, before I mounted the stitched card onto the card.  I added  a piece of ribbon and a sentiment at the top.

I am trying out a tip from a fellow blogger, John Lockwood  John Next Door .  Someone had asked how John photographed his cards.  His pictures always looked goo,  so I thought I would try. Hope you see a difference from my earlier blog photos.

Here are some close ups of the card.

 Hope you're enjoying the lovely weather we are having. Thank you for looking in.
