My 2017 Christmas Card Tally

21 March 2014

A Floral Delight

Good evening - hope everyone is well?

Sorry for not being around much again, but I have been decorating all week, painting the woodwork and the walls every afternoon when I got home from work, ready to paper the feature wall on Saturday and I can then do the finishing touches - the bit I like best.  Our new bed has been delivered this afternoon too - I can't wait as we have been sleeping on a mattress on the floor for the past 3 weeks and I hurt my back yesterday afternoon decorating so need a restful night's sleep!

I can't do anything DIY on Saturday as I will be at Hobbycrafts @ The NEC meeting up with my very lovely friend Debs and the Lovely Laurie, Pam and Sharon are going too, so should be in for a fabby day of catching up and spending!

So I'm here to share the card I have made for my Mother-in-Law for Mother's Day.

Card Ingredients:

LOTV Art Pad 3 - Wild Flowers
LOTV & Nitwit Bonnets & Bows Papers
Memory Box Cherry Blossom Die
Ribbon, Pearls & Card from Stash
Kanban Swiss Dots Card
Antia's Peel Offs Coloured with Promarkers

I would like to enter this card into the following challenges:
