Betsy Bluebell


Why is it when Men (Sorry Kevin) are going away they can't organise themselves by writing a list and ticking it off ?, my OH is flying to Rotterdam for 4 days, so at 6.30am H and I got up, left the house at 7am and drove my OH to a station 25mins away, so he wouldn't have to park his car overnight, I then went to Tesco's quickly,  drove back to our village, to take H to school, then home to walk Whisper and after all that, i was shattered to say the least - got a text from OH to say he had left his glasses and flash drive at home ???, could i e-mail a document to him, so i then spent one and a half hours trying to attach a document, i was just on the verge of driving to my mates house 25mins away, when i managed to do it, thank Goodness !!!!

Today's card is based on a Challenge that was 'Yellow and One Other Colour' - I went for green, as i found some very old K & Co papers crying out to be used. I stamped out the image, then embossed it with CB 'Daisy Pattern', the edge round the frame is Memory Box 'Meridian Border' and i got the idea from the super talented  Debby, thank you. I have put glossy accents in the middle of the daisies on the image and papers. The punched edge in the corner is MS 'Floral Lace'

Great card Sam, love the embossed daisy background & how you've highlighted the centres. Cute stamp too. I'm guessing you'll have an early night after your early start. Jx

You should have text & asked how to attach a file - I can do that!

I remember those K&Co DP's so well, mine hung around for years as well but got used up eventually.

You have created such a pretty card using them and Betsy look lovely sitting inside the pretty frame.

Thank you so much for joining in our Oh so Cute theme at Penny Black and More challenge this month and good luck with all the prize draws.
