This seems a good title for a blog post today, as I haven't said hello to my craft room in about a week whilst we were entertaining two of our grandchildren for the last full week of their school summer holidays. The time has been spent visiting a National Trust property at Petworth, Jane Austen's House at Chawton, The Mary Rose  in Portsmouth Dockyard and the obligatory visit to a local toy store! I also taught them both to knit... one more successfully than the other I hasten to add
Today however, is for relaxation!

Anyway this card came about when I saw the challenge at TIMEOUT
As the challenge is sponsored by Winnie & Walter, the colours of their logo made me want to emulate it, so I chose a background stamp from Kaisercraft and inked it with similar rainbow colours.... these are tiny dots rather than the huge circles of the logo.
I used one of their In a Word Cutaway dies. I have a few of these and love how bold they are. I'm not even sure if they are still available. Anyway I decided to layer this and inlay the die cuts. The sun is from a die from Lawn Fawn, layered and popped onto dimensional pads. I quite like the muted effect of the colours.
Now for a little catching up on crafting!


  1. goodness you have had a fun and busy week-bet you loved it! Just like I do this card-I love hearing your thoughts behind the making of this-what a great idea to use the logo as your first point and I do love you incorporated the little circles. This will sure make someone's day as it has for us at Time Out-fab to see you x

  2. Well, this is absolutely stunning. And, so very perfect for our challenge. Love how you did the rainbow! And, the sun is so happy. Thanks so much for playing along at Time Out.

  3. Sounds like you had a fun summerweek!
    And your card is a beauty! Love the subtile way the rainbowcolours are used and the graphic-feel of this card! Thank you for joining us at TIME OUT!

  4. Love this Chrissie - the tiny dots are so effective! Glad your r&r craft time was so productive - and bravo for teaching the grands to knit!!
