June Day 23......

Hi guys....hope you're all well & having a lovely weekend!
I'm feeling lots better today, had a real lazy day & even
managed a couple of hours in the craft room so can do the
 double today! So what's the prompt's?
June Day 23: 
Tell us about something you're struggling with
Craft something to give to an Auntie

There's lots I struggle with....craftwise it's probably stamping, getting
that clean, crisp outline then if/when I get that right I sometimes
 struggle getting the perfect blend for skin tones! But I have great fun
practising so all's good in the end! So for the double I made a card,
I don't have an Auntie....but if I did she'd probably love to
craft too so hopefully she'd like this card! Sorry for the dreadful's been so dark all day!

here's a closer look

 Oooh, just realised what time it to do a bit of blog
hopping before bed! See you tomorrow!

here's what I used:
image - Saturated Canary
papers - freebies
Memory Box precious heart
Cheery Lynn swirl
flower punches
sentiment - LOTV
pearls, kraft, lace - stash
coloured with Flex/promarkers
challenges I'd like to enter
use kraft at Card Mania
punches & dies at Digi Makeover
anything goes at I Love Promarkers
pearls & swirls at Paper Crafting Journey
anything goes at Inky Impressions
