Hurrah ! the rain has stopped-----


well, at long last the rain has stopped for a while,---- what a difference the sun makes, I have really enjoyed making this card this morning lol-----blue sky, sun shine and Mum snoring, she was up until 1am New Years day and had a glass of wine with tea, 2 glasses of sherry later and yesterday she dozed in the chair all day, went to bed at 10am and has slept the clock round until 1 pm, I must get her up soon though!

Laura Ashley papers
cut with nesties
cream card (cut with craft scissors) and spotty card from stash
Sentiment stamp from inkado
ribbon and pearls from stash

The sentiment has not photographed well with the glitter it says, 'count your rainbows, not your thunderstorms'

I am entering the following challenges;

Sketch N Stash sketch------new papers and flowers from sale, old stash ribbon, butterfly and sentiment stamp

Paper Sundaes ---------out with the old, in with the new (new papers, flowers...old ribbon, sentiment stamp)

Sentimental Sundays ------- Anything goes

Sir Stampalot -------- monochrome

Thank you for your visit

Hugs Tilly x
