Wonderful Day

Well has anybody told the weather that it's July ??,  on Saturday here it rained non-stop till about 3pm and yesterday we put on our wet weather gear - oh we did looking fetching !!!, not !! and went to Singleton for their 'Rare Breeds Show' and it was great, when it wasn't raining !!

On Saturday i went to my lovely friend Clair's  (well her mum's house) for a day of making luxury cards, if you want to see the full set of 10, go and check them out - we had a fabby day there were 16 of us and i completed 2 cards, completed another 5 last night and the others are just colouring in, but we just ran out of time, plus my brain was a bit fraggled after nearly 8 hours of crafting !!! Ok, i must leave myself a note, not to make cards when i am busy, as i entered the 'Wild Orchid Challenge' and 1 of the rules was to only enter another 2 challenges !! and i entered 4, so i was disqualified - serves me right, i won't do that again. 

Todays card is using an image from a fabby PB Transparent Set 'Wonderful Day' and i've combined it with my favourite companys papers and used something, which i don't use very often a 'Doily', but i'm loving the effect, so will use them more, i also distressed the doily and image.

Todays Card and Challenges :

Use It Tuesday - where Challenge No: 11 is 'You're An Animal'

Basic Grey  - where Challenge No: 48 is 'Doilies and Ribbons' - I've used papers 'Lemonade'
