Wonderful Life

Hello and thanks for calling in,  it's all change here - 3 days of thunder and lightening, torrential rain and strong winds and it's very cold today but I'm not complaining too much.  I spent yesterday afternoon getting messy and some of it was a mess as I think my inspiration as gone AWOL!

So something simple, an inky background that was made a couple of weeks ago, teamed up with some die cut wildflowers and stamped one of my favourite TH quotes.

I'm entering this at Country View Crafts - In the Summer Garden (the sky in my garden looks like this)

Just a short post as I've been such a neglectful blogger lately and I really need to catch up and shame my inspiration to return.

Its a lovely card Avril. I think we have all been suffering the missing inspiration, I blame the heat but, like you, we have had some very heavy (much needed) rain since Friday, only distant rumbles of thunder and a couple of lightening flashes.

LOL, Avril - sounds just like what I said yesterday - I seemed to make a mess of half of what I did and had no inspiration for anything different, other than simple. Must be a symptom of too much heat ;-) I did better today, so I'm sure you will!

And it's a lovely card... beautiful, in fact. I love the colours you used and that's one of my favourite sayings!

Have a great week.

Not been doing to well keeping up with blogging either so have been glad for the rain today which has left me no excuse but to try and catch up. Love the spray of flowers against your background and that saying is so true. Hugs Mrs A.

Well I think most of us have found ourselves abandoning the craft room for the garden, it was a harsh winter ....your creations are always gorgeous so I wouldn't over worry the mojo Avril...enjoy your day, heat back by weekend I hope...xx

We were eventually forcd inside Sautrday with similar weather, but much needed rain very welcome and today we are back to mid 20's. The silhouette flowers looks lovely against the inky background, great make Avril.

This is a beautiful card Avril! Love the quote! It has cooled down a little here, although yesterday in town with grandchildren was quite hot! We had fun looking at the bee sculptures around for 'Bees In the City' I am also behind with blog catch ups as you can see! Hugs, Chrisx
