A card for spring...... in my very un-favourite colour!
Well girls..... as most of you know me quite well now, you will know my favourite colour is pink.... followed by lilac, pastel green, pastel blue...... etc etc. NOT YELLOW! But...... I figured that as I was entering a 'spring coloured' challenge.... the most spring of colours is lemon/yellow! Sooooooo, without further ado - I got out my punch and punched - and this is the result. Very simple - no real recipe, only the use of a daisy embossing folder from Cutting Too, an xcut punch..... some white centres from my hole punch - then lots of glitter put on the white centres. Wellllllll, if I had to do lemon... least I could have some glitter! And then after I'd photographed it, I kinda got carried away with the photoshop bling button........ i LOVE that button! I would bling anything I could get my hands on if I could!
I've had a lovely day today shopping in York with my daughter Emma - who needs a dress for a spring wedding. Believe it or not, we could find nothing suitable in the whole of York. What has fashion come to when the dresses are all for stick insects? She is a size 12/14 lovely tall girl, and we couldn't find anything! Soooo we may have to end up at the Trafford centre soon... Anyway, we treated ourselves to some lovely fudge from the Fudge Kitchen to console ourselves, then walked in the sunshine along the river back to the car. Simple things......
OK.... I'm off to eat the roast dinner my OH has prepared (lucky woman that I am), Emma is in the kitchen chattering to him - so I guess I ought to go put the knives and forks on the table and look willing!! hehe
Bye for now girls, hope you had a lovely weekend..
