Sunday Sunshine

I'm sorry I'm so late posting today. I have been out enjoying the gorgeous sunshine with the dogs!

I managed to get the house cleaned from top to bottom yesterday, including wiping down all the doors, skirting, radiators and a few walls. I love that feeling of having cleaned everything, that brief pleasure of everything being clean and tidy... then your husband gets home! Love him really! Particularly as he is responsible for the smell of roast lamb emanating from our kitchen!

Today's card is a challenge entry. Freshly Made Sketches challenge #81, you can view the blog here.

I have used the gorgeous, but sadly retiring Bashful Blue, made a layer by embossing a mat of the same colour with my Chevrons embossing folder, the quad bike was stamped using the Need for Speed stamp set and Midnight Muse ink - then fussy cut and mounted on a dimensional. I used the sentiment from Bring on the Cake and added 3 Mini Brads.

A great card for a petrolhead!

Hope you are enjoying the sunshine, fingers crossed it's here to stay! for a short time at least!

I'm looking forward to sharing some exciting news from Stampin' Up! tomorrow so stay tuned! (Are you old enough to remember a phrase like that from the days before computers!!!)
