Mimi says it's time for cake

The weather has been gorgeous,well if you like warm and sunny, oh I do,but maybe not when I'm gardening.
Went to one of my favourite places yesterday, Llangollon, it was so beautiful there,the green Welsh hills, the lovely gothic style buildings,bustling shops and the fast racing river Dee. The young lads where jumping off the bridge into the icy foaming waters, it makes me feel sick the thought of them landing on the rocks.
Off-course I visited the lovely craft shop,bought a new Nellie Snellen circle die (as used in my card) and various papers. I also bought a clematis called Gillian Blade ,from the fruit and veg shop and a metal wall hanging half price in a sale at a lovely gift shop and some half price Portmerrion plates and bowls.Chips and cider at the pub, all in the company of my lovely hubby Bob, that's what I call a good day.

My card features a penny black stamp called "sweet thing", I've coloured with promarkers and added some fruit punch stickles. The green gingham card is pinflair and the floral DCWV adhesive paper prints. The sentiment is a do craft stamp. I've added 2 ribbons from my stash and some blue gems and the felt flower is a Di namic die cut with a bow bunny brad in the middle.
