Pink - Toes

After a very hectic weekend i was glad son went back to school today, so i could sit back and chill for a couple of hours !!! Saturday i took H swimming then we went to a farm activity centre where they had a bird of prey day on, whilst OH stayed home and did some DIY, Sunday OH took son and dog to rugby - yes H actually plays tag rugby at 4 years of age and in the afternoon we did a farm walk and cream tea - the walk was supposed to be an hour long and ended up being 2 hours, so by that time H and his friends Chloe and Joshua were literally hanging and didn't know what day of the week it was !!!

As 2 of H's friends had birthdays within 2 days of each other i thought todays card had better top up my supplies again !!, it also gave me a good excuse to try something new - using my deep edge doily lace trim to make a surround for the image, using the lovely Debby's tutorial, but i think i need more practice, as i've shown too much of it. I also used some fabby MS papers, that i managed to get in Houston, 2 years ago, but have not really played with them that much.

I think you have done a very good job of the lacey border and I also think your card is stunning. I love the Penny black images and you have done this one justice. Thanks for joining in at ooh-la-la
