The Simple Thistle


When my hubby saw this card,he said "very Scottish", well you don't have to be Scottish to appreciate the simple beauty of a thistle. The colours are so right,natures good like that, don't you think!
The stamp is a woodware ,clear magic aptly called Thistle. I've coloured the image with promarkers. The tartan paper is we r memory keepers,as used in my last post. I've added some little buttons and lilac ribbon from my stash.

The weather has been nice today ,for a change, I cycled to work and opened the doors to let some fresh air into the church buildings,even thought the heating was on. I polished the alter brasses ,one of the members came in and we talked about music,gardening and life ,and I thought how much I'm going to miss my job......
