Hello Sunshine!

Hi crafty friends.....hope you're all well!
After a little rain last night we're back to sunshine & bright blue skies again.....not sure how long it'll last but I do love having a line full of washing lol!
Do you ever wonder what to do with all those odd bits of paper you just can't bear to throw
away? If you're anything like me you'll have baskets full of 'em! I think I've gotten better at using them up though & one of my favourite ways is to use my banner dies.....that way you can make them as long or as short as you like/want or need!
Apart from the doily & the stamped word, everything on this card is die cut......I distressed the edges & finished the butterfly with a faux pearl and that's it......job done!
Rightio, lots to do today so I'll say thanks for calling & for any comments you might leave...
......see you tomorrow!
