VE Day Memorial Inspired Sympathy Card

I have known what I wanted to do with this stamp since the moment I ordered it. It is not often that happens for me, but I knew the moment I saw the stamp flash up on my facebook news feed early one morning that I just had to have it. 

It is the 75th Anniversary of VE Day and our village had a street party and entertainment planned. The bank holiday had been changed from the Monday to the Friday to commemorate the day. But Coronavirus put an end to our planned celebrations with lockdown been on the cards instead. 

So our VE day bank holiday consisted of decorating the house in home made bunting and an afternoon tea of dairy free scones (child with an allergy) which were an absolute disaster. I actually had to ask the children not to use them as weapons as they would do some serious damage.

A clean and simple, dainty afternoon tea. It shouts vintage shabby chic and I love its simplicity

So I have quietly been sat on the sidelines watching the Cupcake Inspirations Challenges and have decided to bite the bullet and submit an entry. 

The challenges run bi-weekly and the current theme is pink, white and black.

Rocker Card, Tea & Cake - Coffee Lovers Blog Hop Spring/Summer 2020

This is a variation of a rocker card. I bought this gorgeous hessian ribbon online and I thought it was 3cm wide but I had accidentally clicked 5cm. We have all done it, right? I am sure it wont be the last time....
I keep looking at it and wondering what I can do to show off its beauty. Then it came to me. A variation on a rocker card.

A Vibrant Fun Fold Card

I feel like I am getting braver with distress inks and it is starting to show, I love the vibrancy of this card.

It feels really summery to me and reminds me of a red hot sunset and marigolds. Not sure why the marigolds maybe it is the orangey red.
