What a scorcher!

It's not very often that we get to use the phrase 'what a scorcher' here in the UK but today is certainly one of those days. Thank goodness it's the weekend and we can enjoy it. Sad person that I am, I have been revelling in putting my washing out on the line and it actually drying.......usually it is still kind of damp at the end of the day and it has to go in the tumble dryer anyway! Apparently we are due another great day tomorrow - fantastic.....the weekend is so much nicer when we have a bit of sunshine :o)

On to my card for today which is made using a fantastic and very large stamp from Stamp Addicts. I was just thinking that, with the right colour choices you could even use his for a Christmas card as it has that whole 'partridge in a pear tree' thing going on.....with a little bit of poetic licence of course.
Anyway - for me I have gone with a pink and green theme this time round and used some lovely paper from my first edition birdsong pad as the backing paper. I've coloured the image very simply with promarkers and added some glitter for a a bit of sparkle.

Right - no more dallying around for me, here are the challenges I would like to enter before I go and hang some more washing on the line:

Thanks so much for stopping by today.
