Simply Wonderful

Hi Crafters,not been blogging for a few days,busy with job hunting and life ,you know how it is.The weather has been pants,could we have had any more rain yesterday,thank goodness it's been dry today. I feel abit under the weather myself,caught my son's cold,sore throat and aching back. Quite a simple card today ,very cute though and very pink and girly. The stamp,mimi in car, is a penny black,one of my half price sale buys. The sentiment and diecut clouds are from di-namics. The paper is do craft basic and I've inked the edges in brown chalk ink and added a ribbon. I've ventured into the garden ,now it's dry,and took some pics. My mimi card is photographed in a beautiful white flowering shrub called "Mac the bride", lovely at this time of year despite the rain.

The rain soaked garden. Alfie guarding his squeaky salami toy.
 At 11 he is still as playful as a puppy but has never learnt to return any toy thrown for him. I throw it,he retreaves and then heads for indoors

In this picture ,you can just make out the black bird he and his family,wife and 3 chicks (quite big and greedy) live in our garden ,they are semi tame and love leftover dog food,they will even steal from the dogs bowls.

Happy crafting. janex

Pretty in Pink sums this up beautifully Jane.

You got that spot about the weather, yesterday we went to London to one of our sons and his partner and met up with another and his wife as well. It threw it down all the way there, all the way back and the whole time we were there.

I'm pleased you see the same as me in that arched die, it's all I see very time and love using it.

Your garden looks lovely - so neat and tidy - just hope we get a lot more sun so you can get out there and enjoy it.
Your card is beautiful - I think pink and girly is just the thing to cheer us up when the weather's as miserable as it has been.
Hope you're feeling better soon.
