Thinking of You

Good morning. Hope you are all enjoying your weekend so far.
It's pretty dull and damp here today so I think it's best to just stay indoors and catch up on some H/W - maybe even tackle the mountain of ironing - I'm sure it reproduces itself when I put it in the basket!!!

But before I start on any of that I would just like to share a card I have made just to have in stock :o)
and also so I could have a play with a few new crafty stash things - that gorgeous embossing folder (a bargain from Sizzix at £1.20 for two folders) - available here.
The beautiful Memory Box 'Fabulous Phlox' from MCH
The sentiment from another bargain buy from Sizzix - Framelits Die Set with Stamps 'Floral' 

This also used:
Design Papers: First Edition 'Songbird'
Kraft Cardstock
Spellbinders: Floral Ovals, Plain Ovals, Edgabilities
Martha Stewart Butterfly Punch
Stitched Grosgrain ribbon from stash
Walnut Stain Distress Ink

Challenges I would like to enter:
One Stop Craft - Anything Goes
Natalie and Amy's - Something Old Something New (New stash as mentioned above - all the rest is old)
Sparkles Forum - Die Cuts and Flowers
Flutterby Wednesday - Anything Goes
Inkspirational - Anything Goes
Simon Says Stamp - Anything Goes
Wordart Wednesday - Anything Goes
Love to Create - Anything Goes with a Sentiment
Make it Monday - Anything Goes

Thanks for popping by today - I really appreciate your visit.
Right best get on and make a start with that ironing :o(
Have a wonderful day.
