We're Going Dotty! - Simon Says Stamp DT Card

Hello lovely peeps!
 We had a scorcher of a day here yesterday & typically I worked an 11 hour shift, & today it feels like a thunderstorm is waiting to happen!
We put the thermometer out in the garden at work & it was registering at 40 degrees in the sunshine & every time I walked through the lounge I kept glancing at the sofa & saying to the staff how nice it would be to just have a little lay down as we were all exhausted lol.

It's Wednesday which means ..........    
 at

Going Dotty!

I've used the beautiful Watercolor 7.1 Arbor (American spelling!) stamp set on my card and it's stamped in various distress inks. I have shaded around the pretty arbor with chalk for a change as I discovered my chalks when moving my craft room! I have also dotted a few flowers among the grass using distress markers & used one of Simon's lovely sentiments from the "Perfect Love" stamp set to make this card suitable for many occasions.

My next card today is a comissioned card for a lovely lady who is attending her friends wedding in Poland.
 I have used one of my favourite designs on this card and personalised it with the couples names & date of their wedding.
I have chosen the classic white on white or "WOW" as it's it also known & I always think it's a shame that no matter how white white paper flowers appear to look they are never quite as white as the paper / card stock.
My baby girl flies out for a two week holiday in Turkey tomorrow which to be honest I am slightly nervous about due recent events in Tunisia affecting so many poor families. I've become a stalker of the British Embassy checking that they aren't advising against travel to Marmaris, & maybe hoping just a tiny weeny bit that they do! 
I keep telling myself that practically everywhere in the world has stepped up security & my baby girl will come home all happy, relaxed & refreshed from her holiday but I'll still worry, I'm her mama so it's my job lol.

Anything Goes Week! - Simon Says Stamp DT Card

Hello lovely peeps!
  I've just noticed my garden is looking very pretty which came as a nice surprise, but I'm beginning to think I've been walking around with my eyes shut these past few weeks! I can't remember noticing the flowers beginning to grow, or when the weather started to feel so hot, so I guess Summer has just crept up on me! It could be worse I guess at least it's nice surprise :)

Before I share my card we are welcoming our new teamie Gayatri to our happy little Simon family :)

I'm not happy with how this card turned out but with no time to create another this one had to make do!
I have used lots of lovely Simon products on this card and had my first play with the lovely Bokeh Lights stencil set as well as using many other Simon favourites which I've used before.
For the largest of the dots I used Simon's white pigment ink, the medium I have used pink shabby chic frantage and the smallest dots were created with embossing paste.
The papers I've used are from Simon's May 2015 Card Kit Of The Month and this is probably my absolute favourite card kit. When my creativity returns properly I will be making more cards with this gorgeous kit.
