Rainin' Daisies


While watching the qualifying laps (pre-recorded) for the Chinese Grand Prix and The Grand National (isn't it sad that 2 horses were put down), i decided to make a card and chill out, as i'm shattered from a busy Easter Hols - i think the only 2 days we had lazy days with H were Monday (B/H when it rained all day) and Tuesday (waited in for Sky engineer all day, as H snapped the connection, but fortunately OH managed to fix it, when he got in) this week !!!

Ok, on some blogs their photos are a lot bigger than mine, anybody know how to make them bigger, please, thanks - Edited to say thanks Susan & Catherine for your help and now the photo is bigger, yipee.

I think it must be the steroid injection i've had, but i seem to becoming a bit dim lately !!, as i forgot about this cutie stamp, which is so suitable for an 'April Showers brings Spring Flowers' challenge uuhh and i teamed it up with some Basic Grey 'Lemonade' papers, i love the unusual colours they have used for the ladybirds ??, and because there is a hexagon theme on the papers, i thought i would also use my Hexagon Nesties (that don't seem to come out very often).
