Well, after my blogging marathon last week when I posted 3 times in one day I've been absent for a whole week! I haven't been a very good blogger lately mainly because I've just been enjoying the lovely weather we've had these past couple of months, hot sunny days out and about and sitting in the garden in the evenings with a little lemonade (!) - and the downside not sleeping well because of the heat has meant I've been so tired in the evenings which is when I usually do most of my crafting.I hope you are all having a good summer, it's just lovely to have good weather for weeks on end instead of the usual British rain day, miss a day, little bit of sun.....and here in the north of England we seem to have escaped the storms and winds that the south of the country has had.

I loved this pretty image when I saw it, its so different from what is around in the digi market - but it caused me no end of trouble, this card was on my desk for 3 days because I just couldn't bring myself to like what I had made!! - that was after trying all sorts of combinations of paper and embellies and sentiments. Sometimes its just so hard to please yourself (and sorry to Julie our long suffering DT boss lady that I was so last minute but I was really trying to like it!!) part of the problem was the flowers , I couldn't find the dies I wanted to use and it went downhill from there really.
This is what i did
