Good Morning and welcome to my Blog today.
A pretty card today to help me get over the horrible weather. Yesterday we took the boys over to Cupar in Fife (near St Andrews) to a Model Railway show, we had a great time. Left here in pouring rain, crossed the river Tay and entered another "world" a distance of about 20 miles. The sun was shining, it was warm, people were smiling. We went to the show, had to have something to eat!!!! these boys are always hungry. Went to the play park where the boys had great fun on all the equipment. How things have changed since Granny and Grandpa were young, we got a bank of swings, a merry-go-round thing, a slide and thought it was fantastic.
The images on today`s card I have used in many combinations with the same basic theme. I received a "Swap Card" some time ago from a member of the Joanna Sheen forum using these images. It has to one the the best Swap Cards I have ever had. One I made very similar to the above, done as a "Mothers Day" card came 2nd in a Craft Magazine competition earlier this year. I was over the moon, the competition, sponsored by Stamping Up! gave me lots of great goodies for my effort.
