Good morning! What weather!! After a week of fairly constant rain, the sun is shining so I was able to get a photo of my card. On Monday our son ran 7 miles of the Belfast Marathon in the freezing cold and heavy rain and we got cold and wet just watching - that will teach me to leave the house in a hurry without a coat!

I thought a pretty floral card was the best thing to brighten things here it is.
The image is Hyacinth from A Passion for Stamps and is coloured with Promarkers. I wanted to show off my new Tonic Studios Floral Border 2 punch so I kept the punched border white for effect.This one is a real dream to use as it lines up in a second and punches with no effort at all!

The papers are First Edition Sweet Owl and Papermania Capsule Collection...gorgeous!!


  1. So elegant Ruth and such an intricate border, so very pretty.

    Sun here as well, but will it last I wonder ?

    Have a lovely weekend.
