A Quick Card and An Award

Good morning its Wednesday already, we are hafl way throught he week and still ive not had time to make a single card this week. I feel bad for not posting, so i am posting this card i made a while back, but never got round to posting on my blog. I love the Leanne Ellis images and these papers i believe are from the fabulous SU range. Ribbon from Poppicrafts and i have used a selection of flat backed pearls and perfect pearls.

I have glossy accented the bubbles and the rose, not too clear on this photo sorry.

I hope you are all managing to stay cool in this mini heatwave we are experiencing just now. I have to admit im struggling, and its making me very moody. Yesterday my dear daughter ran in the district sports for her school, I was so proud as she came first in her first race and 4th in the other. She was completely thrilled to have won and i am very proud! Don't know quite where she gets her enthusiasm for sport from as both myself and my husband have never been sporty personally i am far too lazy!!

I received this award from the lovely Shirley. Thank you so much for thinking of me Shirley. I am suppose to pass this onto 10 deserving blogs, well that is near on impossible. So im leaving this award here for everyone who visits me. I appreciate your visits, especially recently as ive been struggling to keep up with my blog again, and have not been able to visit you all as much as i'd like. I will get back on track soon, i promise.

Enjoy your day and ill be back later with maybe a challenge card. Hugs Linda x
