Summer Days!

The sun is shining here, melting what little bit of snow we got, but it's certainly not summer lol,

I went out yesterday doing a bit of Christmas shopping and when I got back my lovely papers from the prize I'd won from Magnolia Down Under were on my mat, they are gorgeous and I couldn't wait to make a card with them, even though I still have loads of other things I should be doing lol.

Now I wanted to show the paper so I've not added to many embellies or layers,
I did cut the paper in half oh err and thought should I have done that lol, but I wanted to add the white layer just for a little decoration, I was going to raise the left hand column up slightly too only I'd stuck it on before I put my head in gear and remembered, that's what you get when you should be doing something else and feel guilty lol,
My ribbon is threaded through a quickcutz die and it holds the ribbon together lovely,
the sentiment is a LOTV stamp, the butterflies are a  Martha Stewart punch, gosh digging that out was fun I've done that many Christmas cards I couldn't find it lol,
I'm entering this into the Magnolia Down Under challenge because that's the challenge this time, as the papers go so well,

Oh well I'm off now, some lovely housework is calling!!

Hi Liz, gorgeous card - such pretty papers and pretty Tilda. fabulous details and I love the sentiment.....
I'm certainly dreaming of summer days.
I think you weather is pretty much like mine - I had a message from my daughter in Blackburn and she said temperatures = -10 & plenty of snow.
Pretty much the same as here in Germany - so keep warm and stay safe.
hugs Heather xx
