A windy day

Hello fellow bloggers

I thought I would share a card I made last year as I am so busy with DT projects that will be coming up later in the week and haven't had a chance to make anything else. This is a shabby style card made down in Swanage on the last holiday I had with my Mum - in fact I have a few that she took a great interest in, watching what I was doing and talking about the design and materials I was using.

This was made with offcuts of DPs, a downloaded vintage image and hand made flowers. The photo speaks for itself really.

I hope you have been enjoying this gorgeous weather. I went out to meet a friend this morning at 10.30 for coffee and we sat and chatted and chatted until we realised it was 1.30 and were feeling hungry, so we stayed for lunch and I didn't get home till gone 3. It was then a couple of hours in the garden putting in the bedding plants I bought at the weekend. What a fabulous day.

Enjoy the rest of the evening.

luv and hugs {brenda} xoxox

Hi Brenda, hope your weather lasts...we're heading that way for at least two weeks in May! Ours here is still rather crummy, but at least it isn't winter. It sounds like you had a wonderful day today!

Hi Brenda this is beautiful before I read your post I fell in love with this one and thought how you had captured the vintage era perfectly, love the image, bp and flowers. I am trying to keep up with feeding the birds at the moment I think they have babies and mega hungry, lol.
