Just a quick...

... post before I pop out with the boys to meet some friends for a woodland walk with a play area - think it might be more play area than walking!!!

Just wanted to blog a quick anniversary card (Paul if you are reading this look away now!!)

Made with all freebies - lol - papers from a magazine, image from here (I think). Coloured with promarkers, and cut with my b.s. (it is actually layered rather than cut from the patterned paper - iykwim) and another ticket stamp freebie from Caz.

I would like to enter this into:

Totally Gorjuss - punch or diecut.
Diecut dreams - animal antics.
Creative Craft world - anything but birthdays.
Forever Friends challenge blog - pastel colours.
Passion for promarkers - animal crackers

Also, I have started more stitching:

This is a lovely freebie patttern - cant find the link to the blog at the moment but on the pattern I've printed off it is Bee Welcome - copyright Abi Gurden if that helps. I have followed the pattern but seem to have gotten an extra stitch on my bee hive (ooh theres nothing worse - lol) and I cant see how I've done it??? I just needed to add an extra square to the door and think I've got away with it.

However, I feel I am really pushing my luck with doing it on this scrap of linen - not sure if it will all fit on and be able to make it into something - not sure I'll have a lot left to play with so may need to adjust accordingly - we'll see though.

Right best link up these posts and rally up the troops.

Catch you later.

Thanks for looking.
