A Touch of Class



Good morning hope you are all enjoying this beautiful weather.  Another new colour combo for me today, I didn’t realise how difficult it was to take a decent photo when using Black so sorry for the quality of them today. 

Had a really good day yesterday, I woke up feeling really down, I was missing having my own things around me they have all had to be put away or left in my own home since I moved in with Mum and although I have now been here for 7 years it still doesn't feel like home, I am lucky to have a truly wonderful friend who decided to try to cheer me up and decided I needed some retail therapy so off we tootled to Dunelm Mill just to buy a couple of new Bins for the kitchen and look for a Toaster, £750 pound later and a complete Kitchen make over was achieved, the kitchen is now has a lovely bright White and Red theme with Poppys everywhere. The retail therapy worked Smile


I am loving this sweet Sarah Kay image really throw back to the seventies.  I am entering this card for Cute Card Thursday Challenge which this week is NO TEXT.  I have used another of my new Panduro Tilda Pads this one is called “Classic”.  The Swirls are dies by Marianne Designs from Crafts U Love, and of course the flowers are from Wild Orchid Crafts.

Oh wow Jacqui, this card is absolutely gorgeous and definitely not colour combos i would associate with you!! I blame you as i read where you got your Tilda pads from (yesterday) and went straight over to Panduro and bought myself a couple and some giftwrap, its gorgeous in pink with little roses on it, its getting matted and layered onto my cards, let alone wrapping, lol......i love this card so much well done!! oh and the kitchen sounds fantastic too, you could paint some poppies onto wooden plaques etc with Sheena's stamps!!! lots of love Vick xxxx
