Hello, I would first like to say thank you for all the lovely comments on my last card, they were so much appreciated and lovely to read. I also had a lovely couple of days away and found a lovely craft village to visit - all I can say it was lucky I got paid while I was away!  Also I would like to apologise with lack of commenting, this is due to blogger issues - hopefully this will sort itself out soon.

Anyway I have a card to share with you today which I will be entering into some challenges that I have come across - see list below.  So here she is using another stamp from Lili of the Valley.

Also my boyfriend is taking me away on Thursday for a night as a birthday surprise - d0n't know where he is taking me mmm that should be interesting.

Anyway on to my card today, it's a CAS card using one of the lovely Ruth images which you can find here please go and check out Ruths blog she has lovely images there.

Recipe for Card

Where Has the Time Gone!

Hi Friends

Please accept my apologies for lack of blogging, I've discovered that there is not enough time in the day!! Anyone else have this problem? Also as the weather has been really great here in Southend I've spent a lot of time down on my new allotment. It sure needed some work! Anyway I've still tried to get some card making in and I have a little card to show you.

Also I hope someone can help me, I've received a card through the post just addressed to Debbie, I haven't opened it yet as it could be a birthday card. So if you did send this card a very big thank you to you and please don't think I've ignored you!

So here is my card........

Elisabeth Bell Image called Flowers
coloured with Promarkers
Papers are Pink Petticoat (free from Quick Cards Mag)
The lace is from The Ribbon Girl 
 (I couldn't find the right colour for the lace so I distressed with Tim Holtz distress inks)
Also used the same ink on the doily.
Flowers and pearls are from stash
Sentiment is Wild Rose Studio

I hope you like the card, I was really pleased with the end result.
