Thinking of you!

Good morning all! Well it's been over a week since my last post. I've been so busy I've barely had time for any crafting. Work is still really hectic, but I had a lovely weeekend away with my family in the Lakes last weekend! It was lovely for us all to be together and the weather was perfect, so thanks to you all if you kept your fingers crossed for me, it worked!!

Today I have a card to show you all that I made a few weeks back at another one of Jules crafty nights! We made three cards using the same colours and this was my favourite...



Materials

CS: SU Whisper White, Basic Black and Pretty in Pink

Images: SU Live your Dream set (retired)

Sentiment: SU Sincere Salutations

Tools: SU eyelet border punch, SU Stamp-a-ma-jig, SU Boho Blossoms punch, SU Ink in Pretty in Pink and Old Olive

Misc: SU soft subtles buttons, Sponges for inking the edges of the flowers


I love this sentiment set. It was my first ever purchase from SU and I love it, it's such a classic design you can use it for almost any occasion.

I am so excited today. For a start it's my day off (and believe me I need it) and secondly I get my new car today and here it is.....



Isn't she a cutie (It's too pretty to be a boy so I've decided she's a she!! I have had a mini before but sold it 3 years ago and got a corsa! There's just no comparison though and I have really missed being behind the wheel of a mini, so I can't wait to get into my new one!

Well I'd best get my skates on and go get ready so I can get my car!!! Thanks for stopping by and for any comments you may leave. I really appreciate each and every one of them!

Hugs, Vicky ~x~
