Floating By...

Hi Crafters,

**if you are looking for my As You Like It DT card then please scroll down to the previous post**
It's not often that I get to make a card just for fun but that's just what this one was and I thoroughly enjoyed making it. The bright and cheerful colours really lifted my mood and this came together quite quickly.

....and I'm so chuffed as I have made an easel card. I have been stuck in a rut of just making square cards for so long now that I fancied a change.'s a close up of that fab image..

Lorraine, I'm the same too, always something needing made for someone else I rarely make just for the fun of it.
I love your card, lovely and bright, very summery too. A great image and the sea die works great with it.

Have a super Thursday, hugs Erika. x
