and my Hb as soon as he walked in from work was made to do the drawing. M pulled out.........
The lovely Susan of Mary Jane's Tearoom
Very well done Susan and I think you should buy a lottery ticket (Susan was one of my winners in my last giveaway). Susan and I often joke that we have several parallels in our lives including daughters studying/studied medicine and even that the initial of her blog are the same as my Hbs :0) I hope you enjoy wearing your summery necklace (or giving it as a gift) as much as I enjoyed making it. I am sorry that there can only be one winner but there will be another giveaway soon. Thanks also for leaving such kind comments on my anniversaries post, I really loved reading every single one of them. BTW if you are quick Susan has a giveaway on her own lovely blog at the moment....pop on over there and join the fun.
My other winnings today are from my garden. The lovely hot sunshine has brought everything on so much.
Pretty trailing petunia
,Chillies in lots of varieties
So it's winners all round then in the garden too.
My card challenge for today takes it's inspiration from my sunny garden. I have used my favourite Bella sleeping by Wild Rose Studios. It is a new baby boy card and is for sale here in my Etsy shop
I have used lots of bright sunny colours and butterflies.
You can also see in this close up a blue heart button tied with green twine which matches the green gingham ribbon. I LOVE gingham ribbon. The sentiment in LOTV.
I have coloured my stamp with Promarkers and highlighted with Prismacolor pencils.

Thanks for visiting and a very warm welcome to my recent new followers. It's so good to see everyone here and that you take the time to leave so many sweet comments. I hope you all have a lovely weekend...we have one more big treat coming up on Saturday..we are being taken as guests to Ascot to see some more horse racing. I am so excited after my introduction to horse racing at Glorious Goodwood recently. Having never been racing before to get the opportunity to attend twice in as many weeks is an incredibly lucky coincidence..perhaps I should be buying that lottery ticket along with Susan.
Bye for now,
