Lovely day.

Well what funny weather, sunny one minute, downpours the next. Never mind I've had a lovely day out today with my hubby, mum and daughter. We had a ride out to the Halfpenny Green Vineyards. I had some cards to take to the Mountain Ash craft store which is based at the vineyards. They are sold to raise money for the local hospice and last year £1500 was raised which is excellent. Of course we had to visit the other little craft shops and came back with some lovely little gifts which I will be putting away for Christmas (just hope I can find them in December).   Couldn't leave without a nice cuppa and cake from the tea rooms, lovely!
When we got back I decided to make a card for my dear Sister in law who has been feeling a bit under the weather.  It was a quickie so that I could catch the post but I'm happy with the result.

The backing paper is from a Bo Bunny Grabrielle collection pad and the image is from Sheena Douglass's Wouldn it be Loverly stamp set coloured with Marvey Le Plume pens. Nestie label coloured with Antique Linen Distress Ink. The brad and tag is by Stella and Rose.
I am entering this into the Make my Monday challenge which has started up this week and the theme is red flowers.

Well that's about it from me for the moment, must get dinner sorted.
Thank you for stopping by.

    Your card is perfect I particularly like the scalloped edging of your frame.
