Hi, hope you are all keeping warm and dry today. What a mixed bag of weather, I woke up to pouring rain and now, as I'm writing this, the sun is shining brilliantly although it's quite windy.
I've been busy in my craft room but I'm afraid they are all cards that I can't share with you yet. Both my daughters' have birthdays coming up soon and I have been making cards for them from various family members and of course they look at my blog so I will show them when it is safe to :)
Here is a card I can show though....

Card Recipe:
6 x 6 textured cream card blank
Background paper - 'Go Fish Stripes-Carolyn Holt
Image - Art Impressions stamp ( pre-coloured images given to me in a swap)
Sentiment - Computer generated
Spellbinders Classic Circle Die
I got the idea for this card from none other than, wait for it......Pinterest. Where would we be without it? lol. The original card can be found here. Hope you like my version too.
I'm entering it in to these challenges:
Through The Craftroom Door - Anything Goes
Papertake Weekly - Anything Goes
Scribble and Scrap - Anything Goes
One Crazy Stamper - Anything Goes
My Mums Craft Shop - Spots &/or Stripes
Thanks for all the wonderful comments here recently, they are very appreciated and also a big welcome to my new followers, hope you can find some inspiration here and enjoy my ramblings.
Hope to get round some of your blogs today and leave some love.
See you soon,

What a fun card Lorraine, I did have a chuckle at that sentiment. I love the little banners you've made here and the colour you've edged them in. I look forward to seeing the cards you've made for your daughters when you are able to share them :) xx
