Catch Up!

It's been a while I know, but with all the lovely weather I have been spending as much time in the garden as I can.  All the borders are now clear and the lawn mown - all ready for planting over the May bank holiday weekend - my best time for planting out.

My friend Pam came over for a few days of crafting and shopping and whilst she was here she said how the papers I have used here were "just her colours" so I put this card together for her birthday!    I saw this great card by Teresa Kline and had a chance to use some Verve stamps to case it.  I'm not sure who makes the papers as Pam was given them by another friend but they sure are pretty.

I had a little time today to play and as the same papers were still on the table I made this card using some new Papertrey goodness - the mat stack 4 die which a new Papertrey buddy Sharon gave me stamped in lemon tart with the woodgrain backgound, some flowers cut with new dies (been waiting ages for them to come back in stock) and harvest gold and pinefeather felt - the pinefeather felt looks black in this photo but in reality is a very dark green.

Also in my parcel was the Sending You stamp set and die which I've used here with some dotty biscotti paper and more flowers - just a quickie but I like the colours together.

Finally some Modern Basics - I am having so much fun playing with this set and I'm so glad I got it - stamped in navy and pale blue versacolour inks onto white card and made for Pam's husband Terry who is recovering from surgery this week.

So there you go!  Hope you are having a great weekend too.
