Wynken, Blynken and Nod!

Good Evening Everyone, I hope you all have had a lovely day doing whatever you like doing.

Well we have had no rain yet although, it was forecast for around 1pm.  and was a bit overcast at times but there were sunny intervals.

Thank you all for your lovely comments on my last card, very much appreciated, and encouraged by them.

I've been crafting today and managed to make two cards so I'm really pleased with myself, it usually takes me ages to do just one.  I had planned to make another attempt to make flowers with the Marianne die I'd bought a wee while ago, but time over took me so I didn't get round to it, for another day though.

Here is one of my cards from today,
When I first say this stamp on the wonderful Mo's Digital Pencil site it took me right back to my very young childhood when I had the most treasured storybook and Wynken, Blynken and Nod was one of my favourite poems and my dad would read it to me at bedtime, so naturally I had to buy it.  Unfortunately, the photo hasn't made the word clear, so it says;
"Wynken, Blynken and Nod one night
Sailed off in a wooden shoe,-
Sailed on a river of crystal light into a sea of dew"

It's such a lovely poem, too long to put here, some of you might know it from your own childhood, it's a Dutch Lullaby. Sadly my story book is long gone so I had to Google to get all the words.

I've used;
SB Marvellous Squares
Xcut Tag and Star dies
Papermania For You sentiment
Forever Friends Christmas Papers (from last year)
Glod Peel Off Borders
Gems from my box
Stickles for sparkle.

That's me for tonight, I'm off to have a coffee and a relax in front of the telly.

Thanks for visiting

Hugs Kate x

Hi Kate, I'm here returning the favour. I love the image and your card. I made a scrapbook for my friend (for her daughter's 21st) and there were lots pics of her sleeping so I typed out the full poem as an embellishment. I have been having a trawl through your past work too and looking forward to future creations! Christine x
