Spring Air


Gee what a busy Easter holidays, as well as all the activities Alan and I did with Harrison including - 'Charlie And The Chocolate Factory', Science Museum, V & A Museum (2 days in London), snake hunting, a nature trail, ten pin bowling, walks with Clio, Easter Egg hunt, 'Gangsta Granny' (in Southampton), Harrison also managed to read 3 'Tom Gates' books - Alan and I also had colds and coughs, it was also my Birthday.

This is a smaller card than i would normally make, - I so adore this adorable image and i love how you can paper piece it and this time i made the boot flowery, the stamp is : Penny Black - 'Spring Air / 3346F / 2005', the papers are new : Maja Design - 'Enjoying Outdoors', the flowers are : Wild Orchid Crafts and the ribbon is : The Ribbon Girls.

Wow Sam, I am worn out just reading about all that activity and with a cold as well, but I hope it was fun for all of you.

A lovely purple card, something about circle cards that always appeals and of course it's perfect for our theme at Allsorts, many thanks for joining in.
