Sunshine Sunday

Hello my lovlies, how lovely it is to see the sun shining today and a feel of spring in the air too. I hope you are all enjoying it and hopefully it is going to stay like this.
With all this bad weather we having been having l have been having a little spend to cheer myself up - a couple of weeks ago l bought some happy hopper/gruffie stamp sets from Joanna Sheen at 3.99 a set, on monday l took advantage of the free postage at Crafts U Love and bought some Penny Black stamps, one hedgie stamp at half price and a lovely new transparency set with Mo's images on  which you will be seeing soon, then on thursday l ordered the two sets that are on offer at Sugar Nellie Funky Kits) as they were half price - so how could l refuse - l am a girl who loves a bargain :)

On monday my niece took some of my cards into work to sell and they all went within minutes, l always give 100% to Martin House Childrens Hospice as a bit of payback for all the support they gave to us. She works for one of the big banks and on fridays they have dress down day and put a bit away for charity and l was thrilled when she said one of the weeks will be for Martin House and they will do a bit extra and whatever they make the bank will match it - how nice is that.

The challenge at Allsorts this week is brads and as you will have seen from my previous post l do have a 'few' so have been using them on my cards the last few days.

This is using one of my new ones that arrived yesterday.

This is so beautiful Susan - such a gorgeous colour combo and adorable image.
Love how you have decorated the inside too - really finishes it off beautifully.
It has been glorious here today - had a lovely long walk along the canal this morning and then home to cook a family roast - perfect!
Enjoy your evening.

I'm with you...a few new 'toys' always perks one up! And you put them to such good use as well. I'm loving the poppies die with this pretty springlike miss. Great sunshine colors, and how generous of you to donate the proceeds to such a worthy cause. This is beautiful and so are you! TFS & Hugs

Ooooooh!! So gorgeous!! Love the soft peach tones paired w:this cutie!!
The flower that she has is so similar to your die cuts -- well done!!
I absolutely love getting new images to play with & Time for Tea designs was having a sale on Etsy today -- retiring images were only 50 pence, I think... $1.00 US. I was so thrilled!!!! :)) Happy that you had nice spring weather today, as well !! Xo
