Morning all....
Hope you are well today....and OMG after yesterdays appalling weather we have a little brightness today.....and here is a couple of piccies of how bad it was..!!

Southend Sea front...

My local Asda...which is only around the corner from me..

 and again this was round the corner from my house too...!!
Just so pleased it has finally stopped and thankfully drying up...and apparently Shoeburyness, where I live, had over 2" rain and that's a record for us...!!
Anyway....back to my card...and today I have played with one of my gorgeous and very cute new images from DigiStamp Boutique....and teamed her up with some fabulous goodies from My Crafty Heart...
I have used adorable "Florence with Flowers"...some pretty Echo Park papers...the flower is made with a Marianne D die...and IO leaf....a metal flower...gems and some Stickles too..
and here she is...just so cute methinks..

Cazza said...

Oh My Goodness Vicks, the weather near you was terrible, thank goodness you weren't flooded!! Your card is perfectly summery and uber girly, love it! :o)

Darla said...

<I take it you are safe and dry but are you able to get out at all. Your neighbour hood will have some cleaning up to do. Hope it is over and wishing you some sunshine. Here in BC Canada we have had a record summer of sunny, warm weather. Went 33 days I believe without a drop of rain. Of course that isn't all great as it means alot of forest fires. Your cards are always wonderful.
