waste not want not...

Good morning everyone how are you all...having a good week I hope...its still such horrible weather here rain, sleet and wind...oh how I would love a couple of weeks in the sun...just lying around in the hot sun and discovering new places...sounds like bliss doesn't it...well a girl can dream cant she lol...I had all intentions of doing loads of stuff yesterday but ended up doing nothing at all except bundle up on the sofa with the kitten as a hot water bottle, then I decided to take some photos of him but hes so dark he came out like a ink blot bless him so I will have to wait for a sunnier day so you can see him lovely blue grey eyes, can you tell I'm in love lol...right no onto my card for today...this beauty is from Sugar Nellie's Leanne Ellis stamps range at Sugar Nellie...shes called In a While and is gorgeous to colour, I used my usual distress inks...and glittered her up with my usual Stickles Glitter Glue - Star Dust...what do you think of the paper?...well this is actually my beautiful birthday card from my Dad, I loved the colours so much I couldn't resist making a card with it...I cut the flowers from the back and raised them up, see throw nothing away you never know when you will use it...I added a lush bow made from Organza Ribbon - Cerise (25mm Wide) from Bunny Zoe's Crafts but I think its out of stock atm...I finished with a birthday button charm from my stash...I made the sketch up as I went along but am entering it for the Glitter N Sparkle Challenge, Crafty Calender Challenge and the Dragonfly Dreams Challenge too...I'm off out today some rain or shine I'm beginning to get a bit stir crazy and feel the need to escape for a while...whatever your up to today I hope it stays dry for you and you manage to get out and have some fun too

Lovely card ♥ I also love to recycle stuff, from the ribbons you find inside jumpers, labels, wrappingpapers, boxes and so on - you can find new use for them easily! :)
