So Refreshing!!

Hello and welcome 
Another lovely day 
l'm sat in the Conservatory Cooking its so hot inside
And here is my card
White, Blue plain and Gingham card stock
Rotatrim Edge Master trim Colonial edge
 House Mouse Image l bought from Ebay
Although it arrived coloured it wasn't as colourful as it is now 
l have gone over it with Promarkers, Tim Holtz Distressed ink and White Gel pen
Woodware corner punch, Martha Stewart vine border which l didn't use 
Used the other bits to perform a border at the bottom of the Image
Oddments from Corner Punch and Vine and Blue bow
Hope you enjoyed your visit and please call again
Many thanks Sandra H xx
