Hi there, thank you for your lovely comments on yesterday's card.......your kind words are always soooo much appreciated.
We have a new Crafty Friends challenge, and I am delighted that this time its
Clean and Simple
(very much, my cup of tea!)
we are sponsored, this time, by the very lovely

For the sentiment I used Kristen font. I also used Stardust Stickles to edge my design and also add a wee sparkle to the flowers.
Our super talent DT have also made some amazing cards, so do hop on over.........

Sunny Saturday Greetings!

Hello there, thank you for visiting....hope your having a lovely weekend!
I am currently half way through my two weeks summer holiday from work......most of the last week has been spent out in our back garden - sadly not enjoying the sun - but in our continuing overhaul project. This week has seen us rotavating, raking, sieving and all other number of tasks that make me feel achy and grubby come the end of the day! Yesterday was especially warm, so we decided to give ourselves the day off today and this morning was spent with a bit of retail therapy and general mooching around Bluewater shopping centre ( I got the most gorgeous Tinkerbell costume for our Grand-daughter Erin in The Disney Store, £25 reduced to £6.19!!!!) This afternoon I managed to finish this card that I've fiddled about with for days!
This card features:
  • LOTV stamp
  • coloured with promarkers
  • Nitwit papers
  • wooden heart and tag from stash
  • papermania dome stickers
  • sentiment created by the talented Kerry (Pickle)
I would like to enter this into:
passion for promarkers challenge - summer lovin'
i love promarkers - in the garden (hope this is garden-y enough)
robyns fetish challenge blog - use kraft card stock

off to visit my Mother for dinner soon, so will catch you all later xx
