a card for my Uncle..

my dear old uncle Mark is 96 this week and has had to go into a home down in Bournemouth to be looked after after several falls....the thing he misses most he says is his garden and flowers so my card is themed to cheer him up a bit .....





I have used the tattered lace blue hydrangea die and decoupaged up the flowers, a few nuvo drops and some matting and layering ....a pretty floral card that I hope will brighten the day....
Its a beautiful sunny day here in North Yorkshire and what am I up to ....washing....those chores never seem to do themselves do they..
.I hope you are enjoying your day whatever the weather ....and thanks for popping by my blog....

having a play with my stash...

I am trying to use stuff that I have already bought for all my posts this year...good luck with that I hear you say.......well if all I do is try!



I just love these Tim Holtz bells and using them with the Holiday knits background dies was great fun...the embellishments are from the holiday greens set and the sentiment is Lias Horton.
its great getting old stash out but only if you can remember where your big shot is to cut out the sizzix dies...the loft!
thank you for popping by my blog today and I hope you are having fun crafting as well.
