Friends and Flowers

Hi everybody on this very wet Oxfordshire day! We did have a nice day out yesterday when we visited the NT property but the rain was absolutely awful, so it was a house tour and no walk in the garden! Still, at least the rain is finally getting rid of the snow - and not before time. It has been a long time since it has hung around as long as this.

 I would also like to say hello and welcome to my new follower kfranciola. I hope you enjoy what you see and please leave a message so I can return the favour and visit you too.

My Card

Click on image to enlarge picture

A 6 x 6 card matted with daisy backing paper from Clear Dollar Stamps Bugs and Blooms set.  I love the googly eyes on the snail. The daisies are from an extremely old Woodware punch and again some very old brads which have been there for years. So another very simple card with the sentiment also from Clear Dollar Stamps. I am not an orange person at all but I do have one piece of orange cardstock in my stash and I was going to use it for matting and layering, but I chickened out. There is another bug in the set so maybe I'll persuade myself to use orange then.

Must be off now. Love and hugs from Christine xx

  15. Hi Christine - now you know you really want to get that orange out!!! You will feel soooo much better! lol. Seriously now (well for me anyway) - I love your card it really is a cute little Basil - sorry but they are always Basil's here at home. I can't plant lupins, hostas or Christmas roses because of the little burgers! However this one makes me chuckle! I really love the background paper - can you remember where you got ot from???

    Big hugs to you (hope you are both well)
