A Day Out!

It's been a few weeks since I last posted as I just haven't had any spare time. Don't ask me what I have been doing because I don't know, time has just gone. But with a day off work today, and the usual British summer weather, rain....... it had to be a crafty day as I was getting withdrawl symptons.
I have made a birthday card for a friend of mine using one of the new "Girlfriend Stamps" - Picture perfect, I just love this range of stamps and nearly have them all now in my collection (a few more to go).

I am entering this card into simon says stamp and show where the theme this week is "No Rules"
Try it on a Tuesday where the theme is "So very British"
