Happy May Day!

Hi Crafters,

I hope you are enjoying your Bank Holiday weekend if you live in the UK, the weather has been a mixed bunch but that's normal for Bank Holidays you just have to make the best of it. I've been out and about and now I'm busy creating in my craft room.

With all the gorgeous flowers and blossoms now showing their pretty faces I thought I'd share a fussy and fancy floral card with you today, - well two in fact.

These are both using a vintage image from the internet.
