Lazin' On A Sunday Afternoon

And it's very nice to do so! Scott is building Lego, Craig is on his laptop and Andy and I are just relaxing with a cup of tea. It's that kind of Sunday :) 

There are loads of things I *should* be doing but pfft to that. 

Yesterday, I sorted colour sorted some Lego for Scott into bags cos I was fed with him asking me to look in the massive Lego box for one piece or another. He has just tipped each of the bags out back into the box..... *and breathe*

So, to today's card. A girl at Andy's work asked me to make a card for her Mum   and to try and incorporate sunflowers. Boy what a hard job I had looking for something that I liked and felt I could work with - then after I was finished the card later on that week when I was doing my DT commenting I saw loads of stuff that would have done instead of the stamp I did end up using.

This is Molly in her Garden from Molly Blooms and I've teamed it with the Daisy Bunch stamp (and tried to make them look like sunflowers) - so there was a spot of masking involved here too.

 Thanks for dropping by today. I'm looking forward to the curry that Andy is making for dinner and the Strictly results show. Who's going tonight?! I think Michael and Nicky for the bottom two.

 Hugs. Susan xxx

Great card Susan, I love the Molly blooms stamps. As for lego we tried that but it won't last for long then back in a great big box it will go never to be seen again!
