A Girl Can Never Have Too Many Shoes !!

Morning everyone another gorgeous sunny summers day down here on the south coast 
And another day in my craft room for me today,
Yesterday I finished the big paper bag album I'd been commissioned to make 
now today I'm getting on with my DT work....
then I'll be free too craft what I like which is what I love best.
This card is one of those cards I made just because ....
For no particular reason other than I got a new stamp/s from my 
Lovely friend Nicky at Stamp All Day
This is one of Nickys new stamps the postmark comes with a space in the middle 
and you can buy different sentiments to stamp in the centre 
You can find them here in the latest stamp section

I'm Clearly Thankful !!

  Back again today with another CAS card
For the Clearly Besotted Challenge blog,
This time a "Thank you" card......
I wake up every morning (Yes every morning) feeling thankful....
Thankful for every wonderful thing in my life.....
I'm such a lucky person ....
I have the most wonderful husband
and 2 fantastic sons who all make me feel so loved,
I have a beautiful new house and home
with everything I could ever wish for
and I have fabulous friends who I treasure.
 Nothing could make my life better as I really am so very happy.
We should all be happy with what we have and
remember not to take the things around us for granted,
I often close my eyes and think what life would be like without
the important things in my life that sometimes get over looked,
try it as it really makes you appreciate what you have.
So today my card is a thank you card made in honour
of me being thankful for my life & everything in it that makes it so wonderful.
This month's Theme @ Clearly Besotted Challenge blog
 is this colour inspirational photo
I made my card using Clearly Besotted "Many Thanks" stamp set
especially for the challenge
I brought the colours of this challenge into my card
using Stampin Up Inks
Smoky Slate as the shadows on the sentiment
and the outline hearts around it.
 Pixie Pink, Real Red, Pretty in Pink and
Gumball Green  for the other hearts
Enjoy your evening
Thank you for visiting my blog 
Hugs xxxxx
