Good evening everyone!
Have you all had a good week?
Mr Hippy and I went to Butser last weekend as planned to celebrate the first stirrings of summer - an old fire festival know as "Beltane". We went to Butser Ancient Farm, a truly magical place.
Magical or not, I have to say it was flippin' freezin'! We had a great time though and it was lovely to spend some time together out of the house; May is my favourite month because that's usually when everyone starts to get outside more.
Here we are on our afternoon out, check out our woad facepainting:
The weather hasn't much picked up since then (although it has been a bit sunny today), still cold - but then this is England! Don't we just love talking about the weather here as it is so changeable! So, today I thought we'd go with some summery colours to warm us all up. The card features the Wetlands stamp set which will be staying in the next Stampin' Up! catalogue:
I used an Aqua Painter from Stampin' Up! to create this lovely colour wash effect. I love this stamp set, you can use it with differing colours in the background and create completely different cards. I'm so glad it is staying in the new Annual Catalogue. Press the "Shop Online Now" button at the top of the page to browse or buy products in the official Stampin' Up! online shop.
I shall be posting up some sneak peeks from the new Annual Catalogue (starts June 2nd) in the next few days, so please drop by again.
