Morning lovelies.....hope you're all well!
It's a beautiful day here on the Yorkshire Coast.....the sun is shining, there's a
lovely breeze & I have washing on the line! Doesn't take much to make me
happy well, not the sun shining part but definitely the washing!
So today I have another 'just because' card to share...the simplest of cards
to make and again using my colours of the moment.....I promise to mix it up
a little next time cos although I love black I suspect some of you might be
getting slightly sick of seeing it lol!
That's it from done,  I'm gonna jump in the shower then it's
time to get my Christmas craft on! Thanks for calling......have a lovely weekend
and I'll see you tomorrow!
