Cute Card Thursday # 97 - Blooming Gorgeous......


Hi folks!

This is a quick visit to blogland today as I'm feeling poopy....... self inflicted, serves me right and I totally blame that bottle of Baileys I found in the cupboard last night, lol! A big group of us went out for an Italian meal to celebrate two friends turning 40 and I was on my best behaviour for most of the night...... but then you know what it's like, you get home and feel like a nightcap...... and the rest is history!!

So I'll quickly show you a card I made yesterday for this week's Cute Card Thursday Challenge 'Blooming Gorgeous'. I was going to add lots of flowers to my card as embellies but then found this sweet Lili of the Valley stamp which I bought last year from the NEC and decided the bloom on the image could do the talking. All papers and die cut shapes added to the card were part of an MME paper pack I bought last week from Elaine's fabulous store here. Let me tell you, if you really need something right away and can't wait to play with it then this is the store to visit...... your goodies will arrive sooooo quickly and the choice is always amazing..... a big thumbs up to Quixotic Paperie from me ;o)

Right then, I'm off to curl up somewhere warm and feel sorry for myself, hee hee!

Toodles my friends and big hugs, Tara xxx
