Betsy Bluebell

Good evening everyone, hope yours is brighter than mine, looking out of the window to torrential rain and grey clouds, cheerful indoors listening to a Dolly Parton cd in my craft room, did anyone see her on breakfast the other morning. She still looks amazing and has a show Working 9 till 5 coming to London so l may put that on my to do when l go to London for a break in November.  Yesterday was glorious and l spent all day and most of the evening in the allotment knowing that l would have a couple of days off with the rain, caught up with 3 hours ironing this morning ...enough of the boring stuff and on with the card, l have made this for the challenge over at Penny Black Saturday Challenge which this week is 5 circles, l hope my buttons and pearls count ...
