Summer Sun Hats


I expect you're alll out enjoying the heatwave in the UK. Doesn't it make you feel good!! I had to say 'Goodbye' this week as Guest DT with CD Sunday. I had such fun. Welcome to Tess who's this month Guest DT. I'm sure you'll have as much fun as I did.

The challenge at CD Sunday this week is HATS and what a fab selection the team have for you. The sponsor is Jems Designs and the winner will get a CD of their choice. Wow how great is that!!

I've gone for 'sun hats', prompted by the weather of course, and for a change I've made a tag card. The image and background paper are from an almost forgotten Joanne Sheen CD 'Victorian Birthdays'.

 
I feel this card would be perfect for an anniversary. The words are beautiful,
 
''Thou art the star that guides me
Along life's challenging sea
And whatever fate betides me
This heart still turns to thee''
by George P Morris
 
I've added a large flower diecut and a wavy border die cut. The three wooden star fish are from my stash as is the blue netting .........where do we get all these yummy goodies. I've finished it off with a double bow of lace and ribbon and ribbon flower. Oh and some platinum and gold stickle on the sunhats.
