Hi everybody.  It has been some time since I have had a chance to post a card - a case of too many chores and far too little time.  Anyway the first thing I want to  tell you about is a marvellous blog which I discovered.  The gentleman's name is John Steedman and his blog is all about gardening.  So for all of you who have gardens and an interest in plants you will find this blog really interesting apart from which John will be able to answer your questions with regard to your plants.  His blog address is www.gardeningwithjohnsteedman.blogspot.co.uk   and I hope you will visit.

My card today was a commission.  I was not totally happy with the end result but the lady who ordered it was delighted with it.  I cut the base with a Go Kreate die,  the stamp is from Stampavie, pleated ribbon and pearls from stash.  Thank you for looking in.
