Sun - Kissed


Well i have half a kitchen - all the units and washing machine, oven, sink will all be in and working by Thursday night, then next Monday the tiler is coming in to do the wall and floor tiles and then i will post some photos to show you what it looks like - in the meantime it's microwave meals and eating out !!!

Shopping at 'Gunwharf Quay' was very successful and i forgot that the last time i went shopping with my friend Jane to a 'Hobbs' i managed to spend £300 (but that was 7 years ago), she persuaded me to buy a gorgeous linen dress in black, cream, purple and brown and i must admit it does look rather nice on, this time the cost was only £59, thank goodness.

Todays card is all about 'Flowers and Yellow' - the stamp i've used i must confess i've only used once before !! i couldn't find a sketch, i liked, so i thought i would go with a different fold card instead. I've also used my new punch, the one i have been promising myself for a long time 'Cherish' and it's gorgeous - i might have to add another photo as the true colours of the image, the distressing and the stitching has not come out.
Todays Card and Challenges are :
