Mid Way Reminder

Good morning to you all!  Well I am back from looking after my two bundles of joy Harrison and Rafe down in London. We had a fabulous time it was such a joy to spend the time with them, everything seems so quiet now!  I am trying to catch up on visiting you all and I have so much DT work to do as well.  The summer seems to have flown by and I have not had much time for crafting but I am hoping to get back on an even keel soon!  Thank you so much for your visits and comments whilst I have been away.  I was hoping to be able to do some commenting in the evening but by the time the boys were settled I was shattered!!

Today I am sharing my card for the mid-way reminder at A Little Bit Crafty.  Our theme this month is Clean and Simple.  Here is my card:


I have used Jolly Holly Postbox by Delicious Doodles which is one of our sponsors this month.  Coloured with Copics and Liquid Pearls added around the image.  The card has been embossed with Cuttlebug EF.  I used my favourite SB A2 Curved Borders along the edge and added some ribbon.

Please go over to the Challenge and see the rest of the DT for some more inspiration.  There are some fab prizes from three wonderful sponsors.

Thank you so much for looking, see you soon and take care xx

I can image that looking after active little ones could put a damper on the crafty time! Glad you could spend some time with them though. Your mailbox card is gorgeous and I love the simplicity of the design. Wonderful work as always!
