What a Day!

Hi All
What a day it is here! its hot and humid, thank goodness for the AC’s plus I got to ironing for 3 hours, how lucky am I lol. How many clothes can you use in 4 days!! well by my pile a darn lot and was I glad when it was over, treated my self and hubby to a nice cuppa and Raspberry and White choc muffins that had just come out of the oven, great timing that, so so yummy, bless! Brian could only eat half so I just had to finish it for him giggle.

In my craft room this afternoon I had a commission card to finish for a friend and this is the result, oh before I tell you about it, she has ordered four more just the same so I will be busy tomorrow, which I love (better than ironing) anyway I digress so back to the card I followed the sketch from Papertake Weekly Challenge which I loved doing, good job as there is another four to do, so thanks for a great sketch this week, it also happens to be one of my favourite images too which is by Pinkcat Studio.

I will list the rest of the ingredients for the card in the recipe section below, I don’t know if anyone reads this bit or if it is even helpful but a lot of my friends order cards they have seen here and at least I know what I used to make it as I can not always remember (age thing lol).




The inside I used the same papers and also a MS snowflake punch.
