Hello crafting pals!

Well, the heatwave here has broken and Eva and I got drenched this morning. It was lovely to see her romping about in the rain, after the last few days of lying on the tiles panting. The soaking obviously did me a lot of good too as I did more crafting and less dithering about in the Craft Square Metre today!

Here’s what I made – a one layer card, prompted by a few of my favourite challenges and a NBUS stamp set from Funky Fossil called Bee Geometric.

I masked off the bottom and left-hand side of a good thick card base and taped the Honeycomb stencil, also from Funky Fossil, over it. I sponged distress ink into it, blending it out to a fade. The hexagon line image was stamped over the top with SU So Saffron ink, and then the bee and sentiment layered over that with Momentum black.

I love this bee! I spent ages looking for a bee set and this is a lovely one that contains two sizes of bee and nods to the current deco trend. I coloured my bee with water-based markers, so no colour would bleed through to the inside of the card, and gave her wings a lovely sparkle with a Wink of Stella pen.

CHALLENGES
I’m joining in with Less is More, where the recipe is Solid and Outline; Addicted to CAS, where it’s a one layer challenge; AAA Cards, where the brief is to use just one corner and I’ve also gone for the optional masking challenge. I’m also linking up with the NBUS (Never Before Used Schtuff) Challenge with my fun new stamp set 🙂

AND IN OTHER NEWS
Eva has been back to her lively self today. This is a picture of her having a rest after spending an enjoyable half hour rummaging about in the laundry basket.

After an exhaustive search, she found a blouse of mine which she brought downstairs. She showed it off to me cheekily and then pranced outside with it, tail wagging proudly. She deposited it on the wet grass (see the photo above) and settled down for a nap. Later, I asked her to bring it in, which she did, accepting her bribe reward of a tiny piece of cheese and feeling that training me was coming on nicely.

How is your weekend going?

Hugs,
