Summer-Time, We Hope!

Morning my lovelies, well not much sleep in this house, tonight, been up since 12.30 am..Jenny and her boyfriend Scott are both rotten with the cold, and guess who has a scratchy throat, cough and sneezes? Yes your guessed it - ME!

I made this card today, essentially to enter The Paper Shelter - Summer Time CH#162, the theme gave me an opportunity to buy another fabulous Digi, from the Paper Shelter Shop, with some of my previous winnings...she is called Bon Voyage!

Those of you who have traveled my crafting journey with me, will know, just how much, I hanker, to go to Paris...all the milestones have passed, so my next date, is 1st May 2018 (which will be Brian and my, Silver Wedding Anniversary, God willing).  We shall see, LOL.

I have tried on this card to make a less, regimental card, by adding more detail, what do you think?  I used Backing Papers that I bought from the Kraftyhands stall at the NEC in November. My Mind's Eye - Blush, which I have been itching to use them..I hope you like my card.

I would like to enter this card into the following challenges:-

Brown Sugar - CH#98 - Summer
Craft for the Craig - CH#5 - Something Summery or with Flowers
Craftitude - CH#67 - Use Lace and/or Flowers
Crafty Catz - CH#235 - Use 2 Die's (Corner and Butterfly)
Fussy and Fancy Friday Challenge - CH#116 - Things with Wings
Delightful Challenges - Tickled Pink
Hambo Hoedown - Here Comes Summer

That is all from me for now, I hope you all have a lovely Saturday, will be back tomorrow, with my Mid-Month Inspiration project for Imagination Crafts..thank you for visiting.

Lovely card, Avril! I think that's awesome to plan your trip in 2018 - it gives you time to save a little money here and there for the trip and then when the time comes, you're all set! That's how we do it too! I would be so excited about going to Paris! Your card can be your inspiration to make it happen! Hope you don't catch that cold and that you get some sleep tonight, my friend!
