How Becoming

Hi,

Well as we had nice weather on Sunday OH and i decided to blitz the conservatory and sort out some of H's toys that he either doesn't play with anymore or has lost bits to it - it took us 3 hours and by did i pay for it yesterday, i was stiff as a board !!, but feeling heaps better today, thank goodness. OH has been in Berlin for 2 days, but will be home around 8.30 tonight, yipee.  Not sure if i'll have time to make another card this week, as i have got to clear the dining room table of craft items !!! and i have a class at 'The Glitter Pot' on Thursday afternoon - first one i have done in months.

Initially i wanted to make a card using the new PB London stamps - so i had a look round and found they were all sold out, serves me right for not buying them, when i saw them !!, oh well instead i have gone for the colours of my flag and i thought this image suited it well, plus there are a few Men's Challenges around at the moment.  The papers and ribbon are Doodlebug.

Lovely card Sam, great image & papers. You should have gone to Berlin with Alan, I love it there but I guess with H at school it would have been hard. Next time he goes, tell him to make it in the hols, Jx
