City Crafter 269

Good morning!
It's cooled down a lot here in the UK but I'm having a lovely time with my Aunt so forgive me if I don't get around to comment much this week ... I'll catch up when I can.

Today at City Crafter Challenge ... Kirsty is our hostess and the theme is
"You are my sunshine"
You're all singing it now aren't you ... Go on I know you are haha!


The challenge is to to make a card or project that features a lot of YELLOW

Here's my card


Yellow is not really my 'go to' colour but here I used it to stamp those pretty flowers (Painted Flowers stamp set by Altenew)


I cut the sentiment from some left over stamped card and though that sentiment die (By Lawn Fawn) cuts in one long strip ... I cut the words up to fit onto the card. I cut it out in black as well to give some shadowing to the words..


Our Guest Designer this week is winner of challenge 263 Margaretha - Here's a link to her lovely blog
 Do go and take a look at her lovely creations.

As always the DT at City Crafter have more inspiration for you up on the blog along with Margaretha's lovely creation so hop on over and be inspired to join us this week.

Have yourselves a wonderful day

Beautiful card, Ros, so sunny...I love your yellow flowers and your sweet cat! Glad you are enjoying your aunt and cooler weather! Happy Tuesday!

Oh no--you're my second friend using those flowers for a gorgeous card! Now I "need" them for sure! Yellow is not my color either, but I may have to rethink that as I can't take my eyes off this card! I cannot believe our folks were married on exactly the same day--small world for sure! Just wish it was small enough for us to have lunch together!

Margot said...

Love your card! The little cat is such a nice detail!

Diane said...

So pretty Ros! Those yellow flowers are gorgeous! Love the little kitty!

Yellow might not be your color of choice but you did great! I love this card and am fascinated by the pattern of the yellow part of the sentiment... it looks marbled. Enjoy the time with your aunt - and the cooler weather! I'm very happy it got here last night!

Zue said...

Absolutely strikingly gorgeous card, Ros! I must check out that stamp set, it looks fabulous :)

Marina said...

I love the combi of black and yellow - really striking and I like the pairing of the cat and flowers too - not a predictable design at all.
And yes, I have been singing that song all week!! In fact I was just getting over it until I visited your blog.....!!!!

Linda Breedlove said...

I'm loving your painting and the yellow is gorgeous... such a beautiful card, Ros!
Enjoy your time with your Aunt... every minute!

Lisette Baker said...

Yellow isn't an automatic choice for me either and yet I love it! Your card is fabulous, those flowers look great in yellow and I love the little detail of the cat's collar.

Kirsty Vittetoe said...

Wow, stunning Ros!
I have a funny story with the song - I always sing to the kids when they were young, but whenever I sang this song to Clare, she cried, we don't even know why until today, LOL!

Wen Sylvestre said...

You did a wonderful job with the yellow dear Ros. Your card is beautiful! Enjoy your time with your aunt! Sending you big hugs xx

Wen Sylvestre said...

By the way... I'll be close to you again these coming weeks... Cornwall it is this summer holiday! :) xx

Jinny Newlin said...

Oh, those yellow blooms are amazing, Ros; and I just love them paired with those bold, black stripes!

Robyn Oliver said...

Yellow isn't my go to colour either Ros, but I've been playing with it a bit lately...your card is lovely and I find the shadowing die cut effect really catches your eye.
