Another Blue Card !

What a beautiful and sunny day its been today and I haven't had to go to work, bliss...I dont get to blog as frequently as I would like and miss doing more posts but such is life at the minute I just can't manage more than one every week, so making the most of some spare time this evening. I finished this card last week there is no birthdays or occasions for cards coming up soon so I made it just for fun. Its the first Tilda card I've made in what seem like ages even though it's actually only a few weeks,Its a busy card ; once I start to add bits I seem to just not stop!...I've used my favourite colour again!... I wonder what percentage of cards I've made are blue?...I reckon it will be pretty high. I inked the stamp and sentiments but didn't do it very well, its a bit streaky close up and not sure where I went wrong?... more practice required .

I really love the new Just Rite sentiment stamps I got recently which I used for the large sentiment and the banners. I can see me using these frequently.This morning was spent doing housework, getting the washing out and general tidying.As the weather today has been so good we went to a garden centre this afternoon as had ordered some slate for the front garden(hubby's weekend project!).We had a lovely Lunch out; collected half of the slate (will need two trips) and I couldn't resist getting a few new pretty plants whilst there. So have also done some gardening when we got back and planted them. The plan is to do a bit less tomorrow...see how it goes... I am relaxing now with a coffee and plan to do some catching up of  my favourite blogs before I go make tonight's tea.
