 Hello Crafty Friends and Visitors, how are you today?, I hope you're doing well, but kind thoughts to those who aren't.
Well, the sunshine has escaped us again, it's been fairly warm, but cloudy, now it's gotten so dark that I think something is brewing.  I hope not as Alistair is away for a hill walk and he chose today as it looked the best one on the weather forecast.

Thank you for all the lovely comments on yesterday's card, I really love reading them and it's so encouraging.  

The card I'm sharing today is made with a stamp I bought last November at the NEC and just got around to using it, see what you think;
As you can see it is a Lavinia Fairy Stamp, stamped on to one of their Scenescapes
Stars stamp  with Liquid Pearls
Black, Blue Core'dinations
Silver Glitter Card
LOTV Sentiment
Xcut dies
Gems from my box

I felt the image didn't need much in the way of embellishments, it speaks for it's self
I got other Lavinia stamps free with a mag the other week, but not inked up yet, must get around to it soon, but next time try and do my own background.  I bought a brayer a year or so ago, and guess what..... not yet used.  I'm a terror for wanting, getting then not using.

Well I'll finish of for now, spag bol needs making, don't know when Alistair will be back, but I think he might quite like a bowl of of it, so bye for now.
I would like to enter my card into;

Lovely card Kate. Had lovely weather all day here in Suffolk, I've snatched odd minutes during the day to sit in it and have caught the sun on my arms! ope it's the same the rest of the week.! Enjoy your two days off, I work nights in a care home for the elderly and it can be mentally draining at times so I know how you feel. x
