Bubbles

I had a play with a shaving foam background for this card as it just seemed to work with the image.

Lucky To Have You


I didn't think I was going to complete this card as I ran out of time last night.  However, I've woken up really early and can't get back to sleep (I was awake at 4.30am) and have managed to complete it!  I suppose that is the silver lining to waking up early!

Today Is Your Day

For the second day in a row, the sun is shining!  Yay!   In between enjoying the sunshine yesterday, I managed to fit in a bit of crafting.  For this one, I was inspired by the colour of the flowers in the inspiration picture at The Outlawz Tuesday Challenge.
