Happy everything!

Good evening and thanks for popping by.

I'm just watching 56 up, if anyone has seen it don't you think it's a great concept?
We were shown the first couple of episodes in sociology at school and I've watched it every 7 years since.
For a people watcher like me it's fascinating to see how they all turned out, I'd love to have something like that myself to look back on.

Onto todays card and this is one I made for our showroom at work. The image was coloured by June so I had to pick out papers to match the colours she'd used. Purple and yellow are not colours I use often together but I was pleased with how it turned out - it's bright and cheery!





The stamp is Milly flower power and the sentiment is from set 8 - both from Lili of the Valley

The dies are doohickey and memory box

Flowers from Wild Orchid Crafts and ribbon from The Ribbon Girl

Nor sure about the patterned paper it was from my stash, the card is all core'dinations

The yellow edging is distress stickles, I really love this stuff, it just gives a lovely touch when you don't always want sparkle.


Thanks for looking, I think the sun is going to shine tomorrow hurray so have a lovely day everyone xx
