Pit Stop

.. an extremely quick post as I'm cutting this rather fine and I'm almost ready for bed!

HUGE NEWS!! I was picked as part of the new DT for My Mum's Craft Shop!! 

I cannot wait to officially get started on Wednesday, which will be my usual posting day from next week onwards.. but for now I thought I'd stop by with this quick card I made tonight.. just in time for the last few hours of the June Sketch challenge over at Some Odd Girl!!

So I coloured Kaylee up after work today to match papers from Carta Bella - Beach Boardwalk collection which I swear was in stock over at My Mum's Craft Shop yesterday.. but it seems to have disappeared.

This is the first A6 size card I have made in AGES! It actually took a lot more thinking about than it looks, honest!! I tried to keep it pretty plain and simple.. for me.. as I wanted it finished and photographed and postted before bed.. so without further waffle.. here is the card.

I obviously followed the June Sketch over at SOG and added a few extra bits and pieces here and there, like the clouds and the sentiment which are from a SOG stamp set called Sunny Mae. I used a strip of the patterned paper with the arrows on to kinda ground my image and fussy cut those fluffy clouds. 

Cannot wait for my first MMCS creation to hit the blog! Keep your eyes peeled for daily inspiration from the DT using products from the store! 

You can buy all of your supplies HERE and you can check out the DT HERE. Have fun. :)
