Sorry I've been AWOL...

Hi All

A quick apology as I've not posted for a week or so... I seem to have been so busy and have also been preparing for my daughter and her friend to arrive from Bermuda.....  they arrived on Friday and we had a lovely day yesterday ...... we had a proper English picnic on the banks of the River Wharfe at Burnsall.  The sun shone and believe it or not, we sat and sunbathed!  We took Clare's friend Tami (who is Canadian) on a trip around the Dales showing her some of the fabulous sights of Yorkshire countryside...   then on the way home the rain started, and there was flash floods on the roads.....  a bit hairy driving really!!

So I thought we needed a card to brighten us all up......  which I hope is what I've created!!  But it's sunny today again today (at least it is SO FAR...), so I'll just keep it in the drawer till I need to sent it to someone to brighten their day.

Easy peasy to do.....  the flowers I was about to throw away in my clear out, when this idea hit...  The sentiment is done on the computer, and the dots are with a promarker.  The centres of the flowers are liquid pearls..... and that's it...... no complications necessary...

Hope you like!

Have a happy Sunday.....
Hugs

PS......  I've got an idea chugging around in my brain...... I'm getting a bit excited about it, and will share it with you very shortly.......  suffice to say it has a lot to do with PINK!
PPS....  Murray looks promising...... he's just won the first set!...  GO MURRAY GO!

  3. Hi Christine - I have just popped onto the 'puter during the "rain break" in Murray's match - I've been glued to the TV since it started.
    Love your card - thank goodness you didn't throw away those gorgeous wee flowers - you've made a fabulous card with them, and it's a great idea for a CAS design.
    Your trip to Burnsall sounds fab. - the Yorkshire Dales are wonderful aren't they - we are so lucky to have them on our doorstep (so to speak)!
    I am intrigued to know what you are cooking up with PINKNESS Christine - can't wait to find out!!
    Have a happy week - Sylvia xx

  9. Wow, lovely card, and you're right that it is a cheerful card ready for a rainy day. Glad you've had some sun, we had a really hot day today, what July is meant to be about (if we can remember). Looking forward to seeing your idea. You can never go wrong with pink.
