This card is for my Aunt - now in her eighties - many years ago she had a dressmaking business - I remember as a very young girl refusing to wear a very frilly pink and white gingham dress which she had loving made ( she never had a daughter ,only a son ). I'm not sure if she will recall this incident and I'm pleased to say we have always been very close . I only found out when I was in my forties that her and my uncle had wanted to adopt to me ( my parents didn't want me ). If only that had happened my life would have been very different.

This pretty flower came from DZ Doodles .The flower head was printed out twice so that I could cut out just a few of the flowers and raise them up . Lots of Crystal Glaze , some tiny gems and peel of border.

The wind has been howling and blowing really hard today but thankfully no rain - the sort of day to craft and kick back - I really should be painting -do I feel guilty - hell no. - the deadline to finish the kitchen has been and gone and I know it probably wont be finished by Easter so I've decided to chill out - the plus side of having no cabinet doors is that DH can find everything at a glance.
The Squirrel and the Fox - challenge 67 - All creatures great and small - I think I might just have this covered .
Southern Girls - challenge 89 - Earn your stripes - I even managed to mitre the corners . the stripey paper wasn't long enough to reach the top of the card so my sentiment covers the blank space .
Another week has passed on the kitchen reno - I was hoping to post pics last week but I'm waiting for a man to sort out my flue -( if you'll pardon the expression ) . After much debating we ripped out three wall cupboards to house the new cooker hood and this has caused the delay .

Before I assembled this card I printed out the cats twice - I tried adding some colour - grey to the white cat and some orange to the cat in the front - the grey was lovely but orange was just horrible -
Such a cute image from Victoria at AAA cards - This is a new challenge blog which will be starting in May - Victoria is looking for people to join her DT.
One for the gardener - I used glossy accents on -carrots ,cabbages,sandals ,hatband and top of hoe.The image is Gardening Gus from Dr. Digi. Once I add a sentiment this card is going to my FIL - when he retired from work his leaving gift was a new greenhouse so I think he will like this card..
