A quick bit of sun

Hello my very patient pals. Thank you for continuing to pop in on my occasional visit and also your lovely comments. Today I have a very quick card to celebrate the fact we have had a few days of sunshine in Somerset, we are all breathing sighs of happiness, also another much needed man card.
My de-cluttering continues apace although so far my crafty stash has escaped, lol. The only thing I will say is that craft shopping is now minimum, as we are told that financial recovery is on it's way - I am very proud of my contribution to the said recovery. 
The peel off box has been out again as I do like to use up some of my old stash and they are quite useful when you need a quick card and don't want to make a mess - hmmm does that sound right! 
I also used the Die-namics Sun Ray die which is one of my favourites. Goodness me isn't time flying past, seems to be leaping on in weeks rather than days. Better get this post onto here now and hopefully I will get to visiting you later. In case I don't, and even if I do, I am sending hugs and happiness to all, Flora.


  1. Hello Flora...what a lovely card for a guy, great background and the water really does look like the sea.... its nice to see peel offs being used..I have a drawer full and really should take a leaf out of your book and used them...

    1. Hello Kate, I am well Thank You. The sailing ship is a peel-off, I layered it onto pearl paper, coloured it and cut around it. I have lots of peel-offs and feel it is a shame not to use some of them. hugs Flora
