Hi, it's quite sunny here, but it's windy - our house is quite exposed on one side and it seems to just blow across the feilds at us, the first year we lived here we lost about 50 roof tiles and our newly laid turf all ended up in the far corner of the garden!!!
Hope you're all good. Have had my mother over for a few days, so not much time for crafting. I took her home yesterday & then I nipped over to Sir Stampalot where they had a demo for Paper artsy - so spent a few pennies too!
On to my card.
I have used:
Magnolia ~ Tilda with sunflower (on loan from my friend Nicola)
Rachelle Anne Miller ~ Sentiments 1
SU Paper  & Ribbon ~ More Mustard
SU Punches ~ Boho Blossoms & Star (to make flowers) Scallop Edge Border
October Afternoon  Paper~ Thrift Shop
Water-coloured ~ Distress inks
Eyelets from stash
I have entered the following challenges:

Just Magnolia ~ Sketch
The Stamp  Man ~ Anything Goes
For Fun ~ Any medium
Paper Sundaes ~ Make your own flowers

Thanks for stopping by

Awww this is nice Fleur, I really love how you done the ribbon on your card, it's gorgeous... it's a bit windy here too, but not so much as it's near you. Been to the beach and sea was just a bit choppy. I still loved it. So refreshing with this 36C temperature here at the moment!
