Sweet Peas

Good afternoon,

We have typical wet and rainy bank holiday weather here today which means it will be an indoor kind of day catching up on the ironing and maybe a bit of crafting later if I feel like it!

What better way to brighten up a dull day than with a really pretty bouquet of colourful Sweet Peas!  Love these pre-coloured images from LOTV, they're so quick and easy to use!

We've just returned from a short break in Paris. The weather was amazing apart from Thursday when it rained solidly all day, but it didn't ruin things for us as we took the opportunity to get in a bit of retail therapy down the Champs Elysees. Sophie was in her element and her eyes were on stalks when we paid a visit to the Louis Vuitton shop. We didn't buy anything but it was still a great experience to window shop and dream a little...big sigh!

Here are a few piccy's of our trip...

Pre-Coloured Image: Lily of the Valley Art Pad (Set 3 Wild Flowers)
Digital Design Papers: DigiBonbons (Diagonal Bold Gingham)
Card Stock: SU! (Concord Crush)
Embellishments: Lace Ribbon, Doily and Stickles (Stardust) from my craft stash
Tools: Nastabilities (Labels 1)
Sentiment: Lily of the Valley Art Pad (Set 8 General Sentiments)

Hi Donna
Oh what a beautiful card - I love the colours, layout and the textures.
So glad that you had a lovely holiday.
Welcome back to sunny England!!!

I think that you have your day the wrong way round it should be:
Craft first and ironing 'if you feel like it'!!!
or better still don't iron but fold carefully!!! LOL!!
