Oh what a fun theme for May. Happy memories of summer evenings at a funfair – in Scotland we call a funfair ‘the shows’. My friends and I would go to the shows with a few shillings and have a wonderful evening. The music, the smell of burnt sugar and hot dogs were all part of the experience and even today those sounds and smells evoke happy memories. Oh to be young again – apparently I’m on the brink of my second childhood!
I love the challenge of different themes set by other people and having to decide how I will interpret the idea. In my card I have used 2 Stamp Sets that I have had for a while but not used recently and combined them with the new in colours and a beautiful pearlised doily from the Share What You Love suite.
Stamp sets: Lift me Up and Thoughful Banners
The card base is in Basic Black
A4 card cut in half longways at 10.5cm and folded in half to give a tent fold card
The stamped and die cut elements are stuck directly onto the card base.
cutting the doily: This picture should help – cut away the coloured parts.
