Sun Dried


Well i had a lovely day yesterday - son was in nursery for a snow day (when the snow came in December, he couldn't go to nursery, so they owed me a day) and i went to The Craft Barn - to spend my voucher that i had won in The Cuttlebug Blog Spot - with it i put it towards the new Kreate large Scallop circles, then i went to The Glitter Pot, where i did a class with the lovely Jackie Huckstepp.

Todays card is inspired by an advert !! - i went throught some old magazines and found an advert for 'Daz' saying the 'The Power Of Summer Flowers' with a sock in the middle and i thought i know i have the perfect stamp and papers for that !!! I embossed some flowers on the plain Basic Grey paper and managed to find a sentiment that blends in well, too.

Right onto todays Card and Challenges :
