The Park Bench Affair


Well i have a couple of hours peace and quiet, as OH has taken son to a party, so i thought whilst they were out i would upload my latest offering.  I have got the Physio tomorrow, so hopefully she will sign me off, so that i can drive for the first time in 5 weeks on Tuesday, as i am desperate for a haircut and when i say desperate i really do mean it !!!

With regards to the name of today's stamp, boy they do come up with silly names for them sometimes !!!. this card is based around the challenge at Die Cut Dreams, as it's a recipe and the colour Red. I think i may have to go and buy some more of these fabby papers though, as i'm a real lover of proper Red for Love / Valentines cards, and the majority of manufacturers like other colours.

Today's Card and Challenges :

Die Cut Dreams - where Challenge No: 102 is a Recipe - 2 Brads - Flowery brads in the centre of 2 of the flowers / 3 Gems - Heart Gems / 4 Flowers

Simon Say's Stamp - where this weeks Challenge is a 'Photo Inspiration' of a field of poppies

Allsorts - where Challenge No: 129 is 'Black, White & One Other Colour' - I chose Red

Cute Card Thursday - where Challenge No: 190 is 'Red For Remembrance'

Sketch Saturday - where they are up to Sketch No: 181 and i have turned it round by 90 degrees

Image - Penny Black - 'The Park Bench Affair'
Papers - Bo Bunny - 'Crush'
Sentiment - Woodware - 'Tiny Phrases'
Punched Flowers - E K Success - 
Heart Gems - Club Green
Black & White Flower Brads from stash

Thanks For Looking, Luv Sam x
