Quick card and quick post!

Been missing for a couple of days - will be catching up on all your blogs today and thought I'd better pop on a card to show that I am still making a mess here in the craftie space and haven't upped sticks and gone to warmer climes...although it has crossed my mind... a LOT!!!
Thankfully today we have dry weather at the minute - lots of grey cloud about though so can only hope the water doesn't fall again - summer temps it certainly ain't...
Card for my 'Pink' stash to share today - I have quite a few of these lovely Saturated Canary images, and made this one with a sugar pink and pale green colour scheme.
Am real pleased with the way it turned out - it's actually a collage of presents from my friends in blogland - lace from Alessandra, pic from Juney, the butterfly punch from Maureen, and the lovely lace corner was part of a Cheery Lynn die set from Barry - (who's website is almost ready to go 'live' so we can all go spend )!!!
The backing paper, pins, ribbon and card were mine though!!!!!!!!!!!
Usual flourishes, pearls, flowers to decorate with a liberal doses of glamour dust on the butterfly bodies (!) and of course the same colours used on the inside.
Off to take a chance and hang out the washing - fed up with the kitchen looking like a chinese laundry and I absolutely REFUSE to use the tumble dryer in JULY!!!!
Have a lovely Wednesday whatever you're up to and maybe I'll 'see' you all again later! xx

Another of your fabulous cards Viv. I love the saturated canary images, although for some reason don't have any must go explore and spend some pennies or should I say Euro's. The colour combo is really eyecatching, well just fabulous really.
Feeling really sorry for all of you back in UK. Have heard that the wet weather is to continue throughout July, hope not for you poor souls. I have stopped card making for a couple of months due to the extrememly hot weather here. It is about 34c at the moment, and so pleased I can go for a dunk in the pool. Sorry did'nt mean to brag and waffle on about our weather.
Look forward to seeing some more of your stunning creations.
Love Sheila x
