Monotone for Cute Daisy May and Summer for Whimsy Stamps

Over on the Whimsy Stamps challenge this week, the DT were asked to use the theme of summer for their cards. So here is my BBQ invite. Sentiment is a studio G wood mounted stamp, I used raffia instead of ribbon to give it a rustic outdoorsy sort of feel and the pointy nesties came in handy again. I have to say that the pig looks a bit brassed off at being the main attraction at a barbeque though! The rules have changed over on the whimsy blog and you can now use any image for the challenge, it doesn't have to be a whimsy stamp (although it would be nice if you did use one :)
On Cute Daisy May, the DT were asked to make a monotone card. I coloured this little cutie in on the plane, so she was already to go. The papers are by Craftwork cards, as is the sentiment circle. The yummy embossed flowers are by Prima. Don't forget you don't need a Daisy May image to take part in the challenge, although for $3 (£1.99) why not download a page of cuties and have a go.
