A quick post with a quick card - off for an eye test then a trip down the M6 - overnight stop in a nice hotel in Leamington Spa ( courtesy of a free voucher given to us by the hotel from a previous stay and it includes a 2 course evening meal!)

Lots of Spring and Easter themes about - just wish our weather would realise it is Spring - perfect for ducks at the mo with all this rain!
Card really is quite basic but I liked the image and the stripey papers were out on my desk!

Image from A Day For Daisies, coloured with Distress Inks, papers and twine from my stash, a couple of punched out flowers with pearls and a punched scalloped border all made with the leftover snippets - job done!

That's it - got to dash - on the way out am popping into the Playground to say goodbye before I go on my little trip! Thanks for dropping by today. x
