My 2017 Christmas Card Tally

13 March 2014

Just Pondering

Good afternoon lovely people. It was really very foggy in Coventry this morning, but now the sun is shining and the birds are singing and it's actually quite warm, which makes a lovely change.  However at work, I can't be saying the same, as we had the dreaded call yesterday lunchtime ..... Ofsted are in the building today and tomorrow, so it's a little bit stressy at work!!

So here is today's card to share:


Card Ingredients:

LOTV Art Pad 23 - James
MME Stella Rose Hattie Papers
Kraft Cardstock
Button from Stash
Joanna Sheen Twine
Rub-on Greeting

I would like to enter this into the following challenges:

Without Words Relax: Hobbies & Leisure
Love To Create 106 Anything Goes
Fan-tastis Tuesday 26 Anything Goes
Fab 'n' Funky 207 Animals
Penny's 168 Anything Goes

Right off to do some jobs - thanks for popping in. Enjoy the sunshine and the rest of the day!

Hugs
