A simple card with a summer feel

A Simple Botanical Tea Card for a Friend   
Happy Friday eve, hope the post finds you well and ready to enjoy your weekend.  I thought I'd share this last card Harry asked me to make for him the other night, as he disappeared up to bed.  You really don 't need to use loads of paper to make a quick and pretty card.  This one was made from three Botanical Tea 12 x 12 papers.  I'm definitely a stripe girl, and love the cream and brown ones in this collection.  They work really well with all the other papers and flora and fauna elements too. Emma loved it. 

If you're in the Peterborough area do come along to Sir Stampalot.  I'm there with Janice for a Demo day tomorrow, and then again on sunday to run a class for her and her lovely crafters.   I'm so excited.  I've been shopping on the net with Janice for quite a while. We finally met at the Trade show last last month and now I'm going to be able to browse the shelves in store for those just got to have goodies to add to my not so small stash lol!!!  I can feel a copic and Molly Blooms blow out coming on lol!!!!

I'm out and about over the next few weeks too, so if your able to call in on one of the demo Demo days and say hi, please do, it would be lovely to see you.
