Gonna be a Bright, Sunshiny Day....

The sun is still shining here Hoorah! My hayfever is really bad though Boo! I will be so thankful when the pollen season is finally over, I have been suffering so much this year.

Yesterday my youngest daughter went on a 3 hour bicycle ride, today I think she will be doing much less judging by the amount she was moaning last night about her legs aching!!

Onto todays card, made for 2 challenges Moving Along with the Times - Brand Spanking New,  and Allsorts challenge which is Free and Easy.

This is an old but well used stamp, I really like using it for new baby cards. I have a new passion for this gingham ruffle ribbon isn't it gorgeous? As it's elasticated you don't need very much at all I have stretched it out and secured with a few stitches at each end. I used 2 strips here and added a length of white satin ribbon inbetween them, finished off with a polka dot button. I think I'll be using this quite a lot on my cards.

Stamp - Hero Arts
Paper and button from stash
ribbons from Pretty Little Ribbon Shop

I need to have a tidy of my craft room today, always a mammoth task isn't it?

Thanks for taking the time to visit me I love to read your comments.
