I miss you

Well, a "hoppy" Easter weekend to everyone! I have been sooo looking forward to having a lie in today as it's been another looong week at work! I managed to sleep right through to 7am this morning - normally it's 6am, so it IS an improvement!

Anyhoo, I'm sure you are not interested in my silly sleeping habits! But I just wanted to say how much I have missed blogging this week - you gals (cos let's face it, there's only been one man visiting my site!) are so wonderful to connect with! Ok, onto the card! Here it is...

I didn't use any challenges as I was just loving using my Stampin Up products! I wanted to make a pastel card and thought this set would give a light airy feel (just like how Spring should be, but instead it's grey, grey, grey and wet - again! Must stop moaning about the weather....). It looks a bit wonky, doesn't it?! Hey ho, in real life I think I can get away with it!
Anyway, off to do some more blogging now and visit all my virtual friends! ttfn, xxx

Papers/cardstock: Bazzill kraft cardstock
Mediums: Versamagic ink
Stamps: Stampin Up Good Neighours stamp set
Accents: ribbon from stash
Tools: Martha Stewart border punch

Morning Mary - you think you have had a lie in ! I didn't wake till 10am lol - think the week has finally caught up with me .
Love this card - i like the shape ( ie long and slim - total opposite to me !!)
The litle houses are cute and those dreamy clouds are wonderful.
I am just in love with border punches at the moment - thats a great one.
Have you got anything exciting planned for the weekend? I will be cleaning and hopefully crafting, with a few dog walks in between.
My daughter is busy revising as she has her GCSE's soon - and my partner is with his children till Tuesday , so i will probably get lots of cards done
You have fun whatever you do with that Hubbie of yours. Don't eat too much choccie ..

Hi Mary - hope you are having a great Easter break and having some R&R.
Mine has been mainly housework and laundry - but idid have 4 days away last weekend - so i amnot complaining.
Its quiet here - on my own,but can make a mess as usual at the dining room table and craft away lol. The crafty sentiments stamps are quite nice - as you say the sentiments sheets are great. The new Amy character is quite cute.

Easter Blessings to you and your family.
Lisa ;)
