Bright Summer Colour to Welcome June in !!!

New Catalogue 
Launches Today!!!

Good Morning Ladies, 

Today is such an exciting day for many reasons, I get to meet some of my lovely craft family, it's June, which to me is the start of summer and The New Stampin'Up! Catalogue launches today, so we can order all of the lovely new goodies, ooh my fingers are itching !!!! 

Today's card was made using the 'Detail Floral Thinlits', which I used to cut the Lemon Lime Twist card, the pretty paper is 'Fresh Florals Designer Series Paper'.
The label in the centre is the 'Label Me Pretty' stamp set, which I cut with the 'Pretty Label Lunch'.
I used the 'Delicate Daisies' stamp set and matching Punch to create the flower in the case too.

Pat and I had a lovely day yesterday, sadly Sue was too poorly to join us, we didn't get any crafting done though, Pat treated me to lunch out at a local Pottery, which was delicious, we had a look around the lovely shop too, by the time we got back and had a cup of tea it was time for us to take Lucy to the Orthodontist.  The good thing is we get to do it all again today! 

I hope you have a lovely day ladies, I wish I was meeting up with all of you today xxx

Love and hugs

  4. Morning. Lovely card SANDRA I really like that colour
    So excited I am just finishing breakfast Then a shower and off I go to Watford I just hope the buses behave themselves! See you all later xx

  5. Hi Sandra
    Lovely lovely card today. Wouldn't guess that you like green as you were ooing and aahing all he green jewellery and pottery at Aston Potteries. As it was a lovely day yesterday I thought we'd go out for lunch. Lovely lovely things at Aston Pottery. We could have bought up nearly the whole shop. Only kidding Paul. Wouldn't all have fitted into my boot. We'd have had to go back another day wouldn't we. The tops ( didn't realise they sold a few tops as well). We're gorgeous. I saw a lovely one but it would have been a dress on me feign so short.
    Look forward to meeting the ladies today.
    Margaret will miss you, and I hope Sue and Chris didn't pass on the sickness bug they both had yesterday when they came over to see you.

  6. Predictive text again. Should have read being so short.

  7. Morning all.
    Car ready to go without me if I'm not hurry up Lol. Just wanted to wish you all a lovely day whatever you are doing and I'll pop in later to see what you have done.
    Gorgeous card and colour is lush, perfect for the start of Summer !
    Love and many hugs to you all, Maria xxx

Mom an tues I struggled yesterday I was day off so rested but as today was a full shift I'm like nope I'm not suffering all day I'm saying home to rest it.

    Enjoy the rest of the day everyone. Sending love and hugs to all xxx

  12. Afternoon everyone,

    Love the bright, zingy green of your card.

    Anybody else having problems getting Facebook to load? It's been two days now with no connection. Yet when I am asked to login to conversations with FB and then change screens it disappears. I only had time to try to see a post my BIL had sent before the screen went back to a blank page again. Aaaargh.

    Ladies I hope your meet-up was full of laughter. I'm afraid Watford is far too far for me just to pop over to.

    Love 7 hugs
    Cheryl xxx

    1. Hi Cheryl
      Would have loved to have seen you today. I do hope we can meet up again sometime in the future. Don't do Facebook really just share any funnies I'm sent.

  13. Hi Sandra and all in the Café today. Love your card today, lovely and bright for the start of June, where did the first 5 months of this year go????
