Hi All,

 Oh golly me its been more that a week since I last blogged. I am busy with other things just now, please excuse the lack of bloggyness. I miss everyone! I hope that folks in the UK are not too hot with this heatwave thats been happening (Everywhere Except Arbroath!!!) 
I decided I should make something after Shell nagged me to make a card that would fit the theme on My Time to Craft!!! They have a colour theme of Turquoise and Brown.

I used an image I bought months ago and printed out then too but never got round to using it. I just went back to the store there and found it had been closed down :(  
I thought this quote would be perfect too!!! 
Card Recipe
A5 Card
Co-ordinations Brown Cardstock
