Raining Daisies!

Boy is it hot and sticky or what!!, Hello Everyone, are you feeling the heat as much as I am, melting is the only way to describe it.  I'm not complaining though, I can't remember when we had such a continuous good weather, and it's so good the children are having during the school holidays.

Thank you one and all for the lovely comments on my last card, I do appreciate each and every one.

This is just a short post today, not al lot of news, alistair has been away since early morning to go hillwalking with a friend, I don't know how he does it in this heat, and his toe is still bothering him, but not as much as when he had his last bout of gout.  I got him to agree not to go to the climbing wall whilst his toe is painful as he would be balancing on his toes. at least that's something.

I have a little card today make with the Little Claire July Club Stamp;

The second photo is not good as I could'nt crop it any better, so your seeing all the bits in the background.

LC Stamp Raining Daisies, stamps came along with the base card, papers, and blue card
Papermania Gems and Bow
Glamour Dust and Star Dust

As you can see it is a very simple easel card, I can't take credit for the design as it is one of the LC DT's which was on the news letter, but I've added my own twist to it.

I wish to enter this card into;

I think I might go and have a cool shower, before dinner, although I'll be melting again soon, some idiot thought it would be a good idea to have Chilli Con Carne for the meal tonight, I wonder you that was!!

Bye for now
Hugs Kate x

Hi Kate
Hot stuff is supposed to cool you down as your body tries harder to cool you. . . . Or so they say! Went out for lunch with Mr Duck so I have just had an iced lolly for my tea lol!
Anyhoo, lovely card Kate and the background almost tartan. Good luck with the challenge.
