Summer Time Flower!

Evening All,

I hope you all had a lovely weekend.....I had a brilliant Saturday...I spent Saturday being a tourist in London with my sister Lorna. We went to an amazing American style diner in London...the one I took Becca to in June...this time I had the pancakes! We then strolled through London to the Girl Guideing shop and then wanted around the Royal Mews. If you ever find yourself in London I'd highly recommend visiting the Royal Mews, which are the palace's working stables. For under £10 you get to see all the royal carriages, a limo and some of the horses. They even provide a free audio tour or guided tour - great value!

Anyway, enough about London and onto my card for you may have guessed by the post title there is going to be a flower fact a rather large one!

This shaker card has been designed for two challenges:

When I saw this week's challenge on Cupcake I knew it had to be a shaker card - I love them and love any excuse to make one! The Sir Stampalot challenge was a lot harder because there are so many things that remind me of summer time. In the end I decided that I do love the summer time because I can be outside so much enjoy my garden or the local parks. Flowers are so beautiful in the summer months!

For this shaker card I made a flower on the computer -  not sure why, but it seemed to work! I used acetate of course, plus a lot of mini 3D sticky pads and some gorgeous yellow seed beeds. These cards really are easy to make and I think look fantastic!

Right, I'm off to a Girl Guide district meeting now!
Thanks for stopping by today,
