I really shouldn't have sat down

What a lovely day it's been, I hope wherever you are that the sun has been shining on you.

I ended up tidying up my craft stuff earlier as I moved something and tipped the tin of Prisamcolour pencils down the back of the book case.  I have retrieved all but one of them but it made me tidy up and I found things I had long since forgotten about.... So I have plans for later.

However, I now can't sit on one of the sofas in the living room as there is loads of stuff which was removed from the dining room sitting on it. Tomorrow's job perhaps.

I must go and take a photo of the clear dining table now for WOYWW..... what a difference from last week ;)

So onto today's card. A girl from work (well, she's still there, I'm not!) asked if I could do a card for someone else at work who likes knitting and sewing and did I have anything. I said I didn't but I would do a card anyway. Then when we were down in the garden centre at Cardwell Bay on Sunday there was a little basket of Sugar Nellie Leanne Ellis stamps (and a few Mangas) on a BOGOF... and what was there but this little image! It was meant to be.

So this is what I came up with :)

Challenges I'd like to enter:

The Sugar Bowl - Gayles Sketch
My Mum's Craft Shop - Birthday Girls
Divas by Design - Happy Birthday
Crafts and Me - Anything Goes

Image - SN, Leanne Ellis stamp, coloured with Promarkers, Sentiment, Stampin Up
Cardstock - Stampin Up
Paper - Papermania
Embellishments - all from stash

Thanks for dropping by today. I'm away to tidy some more and then hopefully get a bit of crafting done later on.

Hugs. Susan xxx
