Doing what you like, liking what you do....

Hello. I hope you have had a good weekend. The weather has been glorious here in Dorset, a couple of frosty starts but that's okay because the sunshine usually follows. I  sowed some tomato seeds and did a bit of faffing in the greenhouse yesterday and today I had an early ride while the surrounding villages were still asleep. I also managed to grab some crafty time and made this.

 I have spotted several feminine and Shabby chic challenges about so decided to steer clear of my cute stamps for a change and do something different. The stamped sentiment is from a very, very old grey rubber set from Creative Expressions. this was cut using a couple of Spellbinder oval dies that I duffed up a bit and distressed with a pink distress ink pad, that also coloured the ribbon to match. It has been quite some time since I opened my flower box so spent quite a while finding matching blooms to add to the card. Oh, the papers are Anna Marie Designs.

Thank you for your continued support and kind comments. See you next week xx
