That was the week, that wasn't


Well I may not have posted anything for a while but I certainly have been doing my bit for paper re-cycling.

I think I may have started with Hay Fever as I have been sneezing for England and my nose has been running faster than Usain Bolt.

This is a card I made for my Sister's birthday, I think I may have posted one before, but in pink

Sentiment - peel off letters, coloured purple.
All of the dies are either Memory Box or Poppy Stamps.
 Distressed Inks to colour the dies.

My Grandson's are back from their month in Australia and they have loved it and think we all should move there, I have told them that the grass is always greener on the other side and they would still have to go to school if we all moved there, life will not be a holiday. Lovely to have them back.

So this is going into Pixies Snippets Playground 189,  I do have lots and lots of white snippets which really do come in handy for cards like this.
Been posting this for the last 3 days and now running through the gates at the last minute.

  2. Such a pretty card Kath. I love that little picket fence die - it's a perfect way to add the sentiment. Happy Birthday wishes to Eileen, and I hope you are feeling better very soon, Kath.

  9. Kath, so glad the kids had a great time...and I know you're delighted to have them back home again. Love this beautiful card. Looks like the pansies we have here in winter. The border is so pretty with the dies & your coloring is fabulous. Also like the way you've done the sentiment. A great look all round. TFS & Hugs
