Here Comes The Sun!!

Hello, the sun is shining, we are all feeling summery and to celebrate papermill direct are having a special sale of their Summer Colours with 10% off.  (bright orange, raspberry pink, pale turquoise, dark violet, daffodil yellow & ocean blue - grab a midi box (260 sheets!!) for just £21-60). Link here  (there's also a pretty coloured pack of envelopes at a very special price too)

The Design Team have all been busy creating for this offer, so be sure to check out all the blogs at the bottom of this post.

But first up is Mr Sun, I love the cheerful sunny shade of daffodil yellow card against the zingy Bright Orange card and used them to make this Sun Shaped hanging decoration.

 It's a simple design cut using my Cricut mini, and uses just 3 shades of card Daffodil Yellow,  Bright Orange, and Mocha Brown for the base.  I added a dash of stickles to highlight his eyes and some orange & white bakers twine to make a little hanging loop.  He seemed quite at home hanging from the leafy arch and the pergola in my garden.  He would make a fun decoration for a conservatory too.

Materials used:
Daffodil Yellow, Bright orange  card - papermill direct summer sale box (or available separately)

Mocha Brown card - papermill direct
Stickles in 'Mercury Glass'
Orange & White Bakers twine

Cricut Mini to cut the shapes 

Why not pop over and see what my fabulous papermill teamies have got up to this week too?:

and whilst I remember, there is still time to enter the fantabulous papermill competition to win a Cricut Explore!!  Check out this link but be quick as the competition closes 8th August.
