What a Beautiful day!

Hullo, Hullo,
Yet another scorcher for us today doesn't it make you feel so alive and well when the sun is out it really puts a smile on my chops!!
Although I did just want to laze in the garden today, I did allow myself a few mins in my craft room to make a card, well I should have been tidying it really - but wheres the fun in that!!
I do love my Elzybells images and as soon as I saw the sketch over at Sketch Saturday I knew just the stamps I was gonna use and am pleased how it turned out.
I managed to sneak some Kraft card into my design as I haven't used it for a while and was getting withdrawal symptoms as I loves this stuff. I also used my twill ribbon which has been sitting gathering dust and not quite sure why as I loves that too.
Lots of papermania shimmer dots have been used and you can just see them sparkling in the sun, they are also dotted along the SU border punch if you look carefully.
Well, I braved aerobics this morning and managed to come out alive even though I came out looking like Tom Tom Tomato and sweating like an Oink!!!
I caught myself in the window yesterday whilst wearing a vest in the garden and was not too pleased with the rubber ring that seems to have grown around my waist, so exercise it is and cutting down on bread (my downfall) if I want to be wearing a bikini on hols.
I will also be entering my card for

A Spoonful of Sugar - Cute and girly
Stamp Something - 2 0f something
ABC challenge - Unused stash

  2. Gorgeous card Suzie- love the papers & the border punch.
    I know what you mean about seeing the rubber ring around the belly regions- gotta start doing something about mine too- especially so I don't look like a beached whale by the pool on holiday!

  3. This is gorgeous Suzie,
    I love how you have used the different Elzy images and the border punch is really pretty.

    I'm not surprised you were a little hot, doing aerobics in this heat, you're either very keen or a little nutty? Hahahahaha!

  12. Gorgeous card Sue and such a sweet girlie! Love your colouring and design and those gorgeous papers and colours. Well done on the aerobics, it'll be great when you start seeing the results although in my case I'd run away screaming from a bikini :D and would probably break the floor of a gym!!! Enjoy the bank holiday. Hugs, Chris xx
