WOW Saturday...

this week seems to have flown past. Think its because we had Tuesday off. (No Monday Holiday in Scotland for my boys)
I do hope you are all ok, have seen on the weather reports today of bad rain and flooding in a lot of places. Its been cold here but not nearly as much rain. Please stay safe.

So onto my card for today. Im busy doing a few crafty things in the background but thought I would play along with a couple of challenges.  Less Is More have the theme of One Layer and use Flourishes. Allsorts would like us to use Ice Cream colors. We tend to avoid the blue ice cream in my house with Jake having ADHD but I do love it. We have a brilliant ice cream shop in town with about 30 flavours to pick from.

I do love this sentiment, It comes from a set I got as a TSV on QVC the other month from Anna Griffin. I loved the stamps so bought the set. Have to say im disappointed with the papers in it this time as they are not the quality they usually are with her stuff. 

Off now to get the chores sorted, got a pile of washing to hang out and suppose the hoover wont work itself.  

Card Ingredients. 
4 x 4 Card
Post it Notes for masking off the card.
