Bright and beautiful

Well maybe not beautiful, maybe more bright and cheery, that's the card I have done following the sketch over at Friday Sketchers and also covered the 'In the wild somethings' challenge from Stamp Something this week!
Sorry the picture is a bit dull, but it was a grey wet old day yesterday and I couldn't get the light right!
I have made another card but can't show this as it's my A Spoon Full of Sugar DT card for this weeks challenge! So you will have to wait until Tuesday for that one, hope to see you there, and there is chance to win another fabby stamp ;0)
I took the Holy communion card to the girl at the shop, and picked up another order!! A little thinking needed for this one, not only is it a christening but also 1st birthday, I have an idea of what I am going to do, so will be doing that in the next few days! Also mentioned I could make gift cards with a pocket for money/vouchers etc she thought it was a fab idea and said yes please straight away, and was there any way I could print the vouchers for the shop to!? Now that one is a challenge, but will see what I can come up with! Then she mentioned christmas cards, i.e. 1st christmas and said she was doing a christmas fair in November so the gift cards and christmas cards will be great for that!! What have I let myself in for!??! No it's all good and it's something I enjoy.
Then on top of that I get an email from my friend with a list of 8 cards and a gift bag she would like for this month, 4 cards for Fathers Day! She has very specific themes for her cards to, so nothing easy, none of my stamps ggrrr.........!! I have my own Fathers Day cards to make, that's 3 for Matthew from the girls (they may be colouring in stamped images themselves or drawing pictures to use!) then I have his birthday the following week!!! Luckily I made my dad's card and Matthew baggsie'd the gardening glove for his dad so that's 2 done!!!!!!!
and NOT a single card made this weekend! Yesterday was baking day = 9 sponges, grocery shopping, then finish tiling the en-suite. Today after breakfast I painted the mosaic tiles twice with a colour intensifier, they are a natural stone, various shades and this brightens them up loads! Then after lunch, Matthew has gone out gardening so I have painted another section of the outside of the house, not too much last time I painted my arm ached so much I had to have the heat bag on it twice during the night, how very unfit am I???? When he gets back we have to grout uugghh... hate this part!! So now off to make the moussaka for tea.

Your card is adorable! I will have to get that stamp set. It is so cute!

I think this has been fun for me to meet so many stampers from across the sea. I guess this is a world wide hobby!

I shall return!!
