Its one of those......

days when there are loads of things to be done and the time just flies!!!!
I was trying to sort out a new SIM card for Jake and that took me 3 hours!!!ARGH!!!! Not worth the time or effort I put in so hoping the company give me my money back!!!

So this afternoon I grabbed a few minutes to make this card for a couple of challenges.

Now it is well thought through. The gold frame round the sentiment is because the sentiment has gold in it. Also I now keep singing "Birdhouse in your Soul" because it has soul in it too, thats also why I chose the Charm I did, The wee Birdy in her house. 

Card Recipe
6 x 6 Card
Bazzill Green Card
Cicle Dies from Kanban
Sentiment and Ribbon Anna Griffin
Charm from Ebay

I would like toi enter my card into the following 2 challenges.

Less Is More - How Charming

Off now to have dinner then a walk with Belle as the rain seems to be staying off here now! Been terrible again today, the garden needs loads done but its way to wet to do any of it.
