Flower Brolly

Hi friends and fellow bloggers.  Thanks for popping by; I appreciate your visit.  I can't believe it's ten days since my last post.  It's been rather a frantic time but hopefully things are starting to get back to some form of normality.

My card is very simple because my brain appears to have hibernated and inspiration is slow to come.  I have used an LOTV image from the Cute Cottage Garden art pad and die cut it with JustRite Vintage Labels 4. The papers are from Creative Cardmaking magazines and matted onto some plain toning paper from my bit box,  The lace and pink ribbon are also just scraps left over. The butterflies are Flystickers from Hobbycraft and the pink gems are from my stash.

Hopefully I will get round to visiting your blogs now.  I'm looking forward to seeing what you have been up to .

  16. I don't think it matters if you post once a day or once a month to be honest Christine - we don't need the pressure - it has to be a pleasure. This card is beautiful and well worth waiting for - love the papers and I want to pick the umbrella up and smell those gorgeous flowers!!!

    Lots of hugs to you both Sue Pxxx

  17. Hi Christine,
    so lovely to see you posting again.
    We all need a break now and then, to catch up on all those mundane things we have to do. As Sue says it isn't written in blood anywhere how many times you should post. You just please your self if your creativity and time allows.
    Now to your lovely card it's very pretty. The LOTV image is so lovely, and your colour scheme is fab.
    Lots of crafty love. Jenny L.

  18. Catching up on posts I'd missed. This is a very pretty card. Such a feminine appeal. That topper is so pretty and girly!
