Happy Bank Holiday Weekend

It's the last bank holiday for this year, i can not believe its September tomorrow already. The school summer holidays have flown by this year, and i don't seem to have done half of what i had planned with the children. I have struggled to do any crafting, and have lost my mojo and all motivation to craft.

I hope you've all had a wonderful bank holiday weekend. We have had a fairly relaxed one, with plenty of dog walks, a little family entertaining and finally this evening, some crafting!!!!

I absolutely love the die cuts by Lili of the Valley, and this is one of my favourite images. These are just fabulous for a quickie card.

The papers ive had in my paper tray for years, literally, but they lend themselves well to this soo cute image!
I also found these papers in my paper tray which i believe are MME papers. I have teamed them up with the gorgeous Anya girls. Im not overly happy with this card, and the photo is terrible, i must get myself a better camera!

Finally some more of the MME papers along with the gorgeous Leanne Ellis images.

I did glossy accent the bubbles but my camera does not show up the detail very well.

So hope you all have a lovely bank holiday Monday, look forward to visiting your blogs sometime tomorrow. I will try and catch up with my blog hopping, i am so sorry for falling behind - again!!!
Hugs Linda x
