Warm & Cold


Well it's a funny sort of day here today, as 1 minute it's raining and the next it's sunny, how weird is that !! It was our villages Country Fair yesterday and i was going to take son to the story telling and puppet show, but he decided as he had so much excitement (and also really tired) on Sunday at the Rugby, that he decided he wanted to have a rest day, helping his Dad to finish painting the kitchen !!

As promised todays card is very different in colour from the last few cards i've made !!! I decided i would use my Lacey Circle Nesties (that i treated myself too, for my birthday) and a cutie of an image i've used a Cuttlebug embossing folders and i embossed on to co-ordination card, that i lightly sanded afterwards. I'm no Scottish expert, and i'm sure my lovely friends Ann and Janice will put me wise otherwise if i'm wrong - but i'm sure with the criss cross ribbon over the blue, it looks like the St Andrews Flag ???
