Happy Father's Day ....

Well we're having a chilled and relaxed day today which is just what we all needed! Last night me and 1200 other peeps did a 10k midnight walk in aid of a local hospice. It was great fun and went a lot quicker than I thought it would too. There ere 16 of us in the group I was walking with walking on behalf of one of the ladies hubbies who was diagnosed and died within 6 weeks. Considering the circumstances, everyone was upbeat, dressed up and having a great time; made even better as it didn't rain .... ! It was a real hoot though when the pubs turned out and we were escorted at times by some very "tipsy" peeps ......

I have been having a play with some bits and bobs yesterday and here is one of the cards I made

Papers: Websters Pages
Marianne Designs decorative panel and butterfly dies
Flowers: Wild Orchard
Butterfly stamps: Stamps Away
Ribbon, beading & buttons from my stash
Sentiment is a rub-on from ... unknown

I used up things that were on the table from previous projects and it made a change to use yellow in my card; not normally a colour I gravitate to first. This was a quick and simple card an used up loads of my "bits" which saved me having to tidy up before dinner!

Well I'm off to put the kettle on, put dinner in the oven and come back for a good nose around as desperately need a relaxed Sunday as next week is going to be hectic!
