Bearing Flowers

Hi,

Gee what a scorcher of a weekend, I hope you all enjoyed it - Alan and I had an amazing time on Saturday night, when we went to see Kerry Ellis, who is simply an amazing singer and the added bonus was that Brian May of Queen was in the audience and joined Kerry for the final song, which for a small town where I live was simply WOW.

I made today's card for the receptionist at Harrison's school, who is leaving later on this month and she has been really helpful and understanding, with us living 30 mins away from the school.


Image : Penny Black - 'Bearing Flowers / 3973J/ 2009'
Papers : LOTV - 'Country Meadow'
Sentiment : LOTV
Frame for sentiment : Cheery Lynn Designs - 'Horizon Fishtail Banners'
Edging of Circle : Spellbinders Grand Nestabilities - 'Grand Decorative Circles One'
Flowers : C.C Designs - 'Five Point Flower'

The Challenges I Would Like To Enter Are : 

Stempelgarten  - where Challenge No: 73 is 'Animals' and unfortunately their last one too 

Penny Black And More - where May's Challenge is 'Anything Goes'

Penny Black Saturday Friends - where May's Challenge is 'Anything Goes & Optional Use Your Favourite Stamp' - I love all the animal stamps, so it was hard to choose

Simon Say's  - where the Challenge is 'Animal Magic'

Sweet Stampin' - where the Challenge is 'Flowers'

Thanks for looking and for any comments you would like to leave, would be most appreciated, Luv Sam x

Love those LOTV papers and a really super image and lovely design, some lovely dies too.
Must admit that I have not heard of Kerry Ellis but she must be good to have had Brian May in the audience.
Biggest regret is that never saw Queen in Concert but did go to Wembley for the Freddie Mercury tribute concert.
