Back with a card!

Well I am finally back in the UK & getting sorted out after my 3 weeks away. I had a fabulous time with my sisters & it was so good to catch up with Jo who has lived in New Zealand for the last 9 years.
I also have a big party to organise on 28th April with 26 people for lunch & an open house  with 60 people thereafter, so I am stressing about getting all the food etc  ready in time.
Please for give me for not getting around to commenting or blogging at the moment, life is just too blooming busy!!!!

I found some time yesterday night to make this card whilst hubby watched the football. The stamp came with my Spring Stamp Kit from Magnolia. I coloured her with Prisma pencils. I have kept it relatively simple as I love the paper & don't want to detract from it, it is Bo Bunny Barefoot & Bliss collection. The shells are also from the kit. Added a charm, some palm trees I have had for years & SU tags. Onto the tags I have stamped the sentiment ''Have a Sunny day'' which is another kit stamp. Edges distressed with Distress Ink. Couple of roses added & my first card for weeks!!
Entering into Crafty Creations . Their challenge is Yellow & another colour. Creative Mondays Their challenge is Yellow & sunshine. Fashionable Stamping Challenges. Their challenge is Nautical.
I hope that after the party on 28th I can get back to card making & commenting, instead of cooking &
