You Are In My Thoughts

Good Morning everyone, hope you all had a fab week:)...I went to Harrogate show on Saturday with Debs, nearly missed it as I thought it was later in the month!! A lovely friend sent me a message and said will probably see you on Saturday at Harrogate!!  Panic stations.... woke Debs up early Saturday morning and we were on our way for 10 o'clock lol!!!  Spent up as usual...didn't think I needed much lol!! bought some lovely dies though for making flowers, hope to have a play with them soon!!
It's time for another linky party over at Make it Monday #110..Today we  are sponsored by Bugaboo Stamps and I have used Beautiful Blocks - Thoughts and Prayers.  My card is very simple this week...found it hard not to put flowers on  it though lol!! My daughter wouldn't let me, she said Mum it's great as it is lol!! I love my daughter lol!!!!  I printed the image on to a spellbinders die called Fleur De Lis,  I have used this several times, as it really is gorgeous... It was such an easy image to colour too, I used my  Prisma Pencils, and the lovely papers are called Daydream by First Edition....Ribbon and pearls from my stash..and that was it job done!!.....

A peek at the inside...

You can see the colouring a bit better on this photo
