Wishing Well

Thank you all for your happy comments, they have relaxed me totally. I have found something worse than driving on the M5 - yes, driving on the M6. These narrowed lanes and contraflows with huge trucks made me tense so in stepped my cervical spondylosis big time. I really hate being such a wimp where my driving is concerned and only managed a third of the distance. 
I also cannot believe that we were stationary on four different motorways on the return journey. I wonder how people cope with travelling on a daily basis these days. It is just as well my works put me out to grass some time ago, good job I'm not a horse of course with all my ailments. 
Now that I have put my little world to rights I shall pop my wee card on here but before that I will share a smile. I have been creating cards with manly colours and was surprised when hubby came to select a card to send, he chose my "too bright" card, lol. Here is today's play hopefully not too dull.
Paper  and card - card blank is a 6 inch square 
backing paper from a pad with a lost cover, and a bit of mirror card,
 Dies used :- Cheery Lynn  kitten from Kitty Kitty Meow Meow ,
Spellbinders Labels 21 and
Tattered Lace Wishing well.
Hugs to all, Flora

  2. Hello Flora, I know what you mean about all these confusing motorways, I have very little confidence now, I'm an Inverness driver only now, from home to Tesco just down the road.

    Lovely card today, love the wishing well die and your mono colour theme, hugs Kate x

  3. Almost up and running again, a week without a computer confirms just how reliant we are on them.

    Lovely card and colour Flora, hope you have a good weekend.

    I hate traffic and leave all the driving to my hubby nowadays as I have to admit he is the more experienced driver xx
