Tea Party

First I would like to thank Mandy for the lovely candy which I was lucky enough to win the other week, I shall enjoy using them, thank you again Mandy.

I would also like to say hello to my three new followers, I hope you will enjoy visiting my blog. I am looking forward to having a look at your blogs this evening.

Yesterday morning my hubby went off to pick up some narrow water butts, as he is a keen gardener and loves growing some of our vegetables.  It had started to rain before he went and it never stopped the whole of yesterday, he was disappointed as he couldn't get out to fit them to the guttering.  This afternoon it cleared up and he finally attached them to the guttering, of course it hasn't rained since.

Finished a card last night and realised that I didn't have that many flowers to go with the colours.  So will have to invest in some different colours.

The paper pack I used for this card is called Kitschy Kitchen, I was out shopping with my daughter Kent Crafter and we decided to split the pack as we had both spent too much on craft goodies that month.

For the this card I used the following:-

Blue and pink card from stash
Pattern paper 
Memory box corner die 
Whimsy vine die
X cut die
Flowers and ribbon from stash

  9. Thank you so much for your sweet comment! I am definitely a novice at this whole blog thing. I took your advice and moved my "Followers" to the top. It looks like you are a pretty talented card maker. I am just getting started. I have been interested in card making for a very long time but haven't really had the time or money to put into it. I hope to improve with time. :)
