Just because

Well what a gorgeous day it is here in the West  Midlands hope it is just as lovely where ever you are.
Went shopping this morning for bedroom furniture and got a great deal so spent £300 less than we thought we were going to. Oh I do love a bargain, well not exactly a bargain as we still had to part with quite a substantial sum but you know what I mean.
Anyway my intention was to get on with some DT work when we got back but couldn't get inspired.  So I decided to use some of the bits and bobs I had lying around on my desk and make a card to try and get the juices flowing and just because I wanted to.
Well here it is.

Riaby Elisabeth Bell
I had some oddments of K & Co paper and an SCACD Ria image by Elisabeth Bell (SCACD stamps available from Crafters Companion)already stamped just waiting to be coloured with my copics.  I punched out a few flowers used a piece of ribbon from my stash and there you have it.

Well I really had better go and try to get inspired as time is running out but the lovely sunshine is calling me into the garden and I'm finding it very difficult to resist.

Who will win sunshine or cards?  I'll let you know.

By for now and thanks so much for stopping by.
