Summer Has Arrived!


Yes, I know it's September, but for the past two days the weather here has been beautiful. There are the sounds of folk working in their gardens and washing wafting in the breeze (ok, I made the last one up but you get the picture!) Is it time to break out the BBQ?!

Anyway, to today's card which I made for a friend recently who was awarded Woman of the Year at her local Slimming World group. She's done incredibly well with her weight loss and I am so proud of her. 

I thought for ages about this card and looked for lots of images but none were quite right - don't try googling woman on scales - it's not great! Then I remembered about Serena With Her Sign. And I spied a stamp I bought a while ago but hadn't used. I masked of the right and left edges of Serena as as the stamp was fine lengthwise but was too wide. And voila. The perfect image!
