Introducing a Summer Nutshell!!

Sorry I have been missing for a few days ;-) I have been working on opening up my own craft store to move away from Etsy. It's nearly there and hopefully should be open after the weekend :-)

Anyways.. onto my card.... I have the delight in sharing a new design with you from the Nutshells Summer collection. This cute image is Hazel with flower and is released on 15th June at Nutcrafters. Today is the last day to enter the DT Call and also the candy at the Nutshells blog. I can't wait to hear who the 3 new designers will be!

Hazel has been coloured with Prismacolour pencils with sansodor and paper stumps for blending. The gorgeous papers were a gift from my friend Jill and are Basic Grey Perhaps. The Jute ribbon and roses can be found over in my Etsy store.

I can't believe it's nearly the weekend.. have a good one and see you Sunday for the next High Hopes challenge.

Oh yes and before I go my daughter Zoe and her friend Hannah's new Crafty Monkey's challenge starts real soon so be sure to check this out for your crafty kids later today!
