Swing time!

Morning friends, did you all have a fantastic weekend?
I did - Rebecca and I had a lovely time crafting on Saturday (you can see her latest card here)  and Sunday we pottered about in the garden with the boys, did a bit more crafting and had a lovely roast beef dinner!
Happy days - and lets hope this lovely weather continues!
So, the card I'm sharing today is not for anyone in particular, I just loved the image! I've not come across
Nutcrafters before - a few weeks ago Rebecca won a candy of Nutcrafters images from the lovely Gemma and decided to share with me - I'm such a lucky Mummy! I think I'm hooked .....can definitely feel a little spend coming on!
Right, that's it for me to go catch up on the dreaded housework!!
Hope your days' a good one!

  16. Hi Jo. Gosh, I thought you had done a card for our Snippets Playground when I saw this. It is rather gorgeous and just the sort of playground I would love to play in!!
    Thanks for your visit

  17. Super card, Jo. Love the cute image and the layout is lovely. Elizabeth x

  18. Super card! It is a great image. Your card makes me feel like spring...nice blue skies with a some nice puffy clouds...just what we need right now...we have rain and yet more rain:( But that is Vancouver for you!!!
    Off to look at Rebecca's blog...thanks for the kind comments on litte Miss C's card. She was just bursting with pride! I was surprised at how focused she was on selling them...she left on Sunday afternoon with all 4 cards sold and was as happy as a clam!
    She has 3 horsies and a ballerina all coloured, waiting to make up into cards.

    Maybe in about 2 weeks she will stay overnight again and can work on them. I take her to school on Tuesdays...I go there at 6:30 am and stay till my SIL gets home from work. He works partial days (most days) for the last couple of years as he had a workplace injury that is not yet resolved. He is usually home to pick her up and I take the bus back home around 1:30 or 2 pm.
    This weekend she told me that she loves school but misses the craft projects we used to do every Tuesday!!! So sweet!

  19. Great card. What a sweet scene. Thanks for playing along with us at DYSU.
