Just a quick card


Hi girls. Thank you so much for dropping in again. I really love your visits.
What a gorgeous day it was here yesterday. Definately the best day of the year so far. I sat out this morning while poor William finished the weeding ready for putting in the bedding plants. We have lost a lot of our herbatious stuff over the winter so he has a lot of replacements to buy and plant as well.
I rested most of the day but felt a lot better later in the evening and thought I would try to produce a card. So here it is for what it's worth. I'm not entering it into any challenges.
The image is Whiff of Joy's "Melinda with bouquet" and is one of the many images I received with cards when I was in hospital. She is coloured using my Copics. The papers is from Kate Night's Designer pack combined ith purple Bazzil Bling, one piecve of which I ran through my Sissix in a Cuttlebug folder called "Birds and Swirls". The flowers are handmade by me - these are the first I have made for a while. Everything else is from my stash.
I do hope you like this card and I would love it if you could find time to leave a comment to let me know what you think. Your comments are so much appreciated.
By the way there will be a new challenge starting this morning over at Crafty Sentiments at 09:00hrs so why not pop over there and have a go his week. I haven't done a DT card because I'm taking a short break but I'm sure that they would be glad to see you.
Thank you for your visit. I hope you enjoy the rest of the weekend.
Hugs,
