In the Pink

I would like to welcome Barb my latest follower , thank you for choosing to become a follower and many thanks to all who leave comments for me.

I had a terrible time taking this photograph and the colours aren't quite right but this is the best I could achieve. We have bright sunshine interspersed  with strong winds and cloudy skies, thankfully no rain though. This is the first card I have made in a few weeks all other posts were in Drafts, we've been busy preparing the garden for winter and had 2 lorry loads of timber delivered, this is enough to keep the wood burning stoves going for the next 4 to 5 years, it now needs to be cut to 16 inch lengths and stored away. It will be well into next summer before we get finished.

Yes I admit we must be mad, this is about 90% of the load we've done about 10%  over the past 12 days the pile was 4.3 metres high.

Stamp from Stampendous coloured with Promarkers
Papers from Nitwit Collections

Challenges love soft pastel shades

Awww this is really sweet Meg… so adorable and you've coloured it beautifully! Love the pretty papers and you've layered up beautifully… the gems finish it off perfectly!
Wowzer!!! that's a huge pile of timber! but it makes sense to buy in bulk and will be cheaper… it should keep you stocked up for a good while…. will keep you warm this winter! ;-))
Hope you have a nice evening!
Big hugs, Sue B xx
