Morning all........!

Hope you are all well today....and got over yesterday's awful weather..! The wind and rain was just awful and some of the bamboo cover over our fish pond has blown a wee job to do over the weekend me thinks..!

Anyway....onto my card and I have used again the gorgeous Bildamalarna "Mimosa Christmas Flowers". This time I have used softer, spring colours and I think it has worked really well. I have also used some gorgeous lace, ribbon, a button and lots of stickles too...all available at The Stamp Basket..

And here is my wee creation...

Hiya Vicky, and happy new year to you! I didn't think it was possible that you could make cards more gorgeous than last year, but you seem to have managed it somehow.....these latest ones are just beauties. I actually visited you earlier in the day, but I found the link to your craft room and just sat there drooling at the photos too long to actually leave a comment - what a fab room, ya lucky girl! Of course, you do know I will be moving in now, hee hee. CoB
