The sun has got his hat on.

And he’s coming out to play! It is really warm and sunny here in Glasgow, and I am toiling with this heat! We have fans on in every room, and it is just too warm to do anything energetic, so today I took myself into the craftroom and made a bundle of CAS cards.

I am having trouble sleeping again, and the heat isn’t helping lol. So I lie in bed thinking of different cards to make and keep a wee notebook beside the bed for my ideas. This was one that came to me at 1am last night.

I made ten in total, and made 9 of them with the sentiments from the new Sentiments Stamp Set from Sarah Hurley. I am always on the look out for a nice sentiment stamp set and this set has stamps for all occasions, ranging from “New arrival” to “Thinking of you”.  I decided to use the “Thinking of you” stamp, but use lovely bright colours instead of the usual neutrals or pastels that I would use when using a sentiment like this.  As the stamp is a really generous size, I used two different colours of Memento Ink pads, to match in with the ribbon I found in my stash. I have lots of embossing folders, and really don’t use them enough, so today I used my honeycomb one from Stampin Up.
