I never used to like Grunge style designs at all, but after being converted to this
by my friend (and now my SU downline) Cheryl I do use this style more often.
Here's a quick and easy card using the Gorgeous Grunge stamp set.

I used the 2014-2015 In colours here -
Blackberry Bliss, Mossy Meadow, Hello Honey, Tangelo Twist and Lost Lagoon
I used the Petite Petals stamp set and marching punch for the flowers
(stamped in the same colours) and added the sentiment  from Blooming with Kindness.
I really like this card - I have used it in different colours for a get well card too.

G is for Get Well

You never know when you need a Get Well card in a hurry -
a friend of ours was rushed into the hospital over the weekend, 
and as we were mega busy, I had to make a mega quick card.
Here's the result.

Just one stamp used here - a sentiment from Hopeful Thoughts stamp set
the three panels are cut from Painted Blooms DSP
and the only embellishment is the ribbon with the Basic Rhinestone.
I think this looks very cheerful and will do the trick in wishing 
Pat a speedy recovery!

And so to G - for GOLF - naturally!

Those that know me well know that I love my golf nearly as much as my crafting,
but I am truly a fair weather golfer, so if it rains, I don't play!.
The exception to this is if it is an important game in the Golfing calendar.
Today is one such day - Lady Captain's Drive In.
Weather it rains, snows, blows or shines, all our Ladies attend and
play this first game of the Season.
(When it was my Lady Captain's Drive In, it rained most of the morning 
and we all ended up absolutely soaking wet, but everyone who could come did-
and I was truly grateful for the support)
If you want a laugh you can see a few pictures that were taken back then in March 2010

So today, at 10:00, you will find us playing this important game
and showing our support for our new Lady Captain.
Here's the card that I have made for her.

So here's to a good year Chris - enjoy!!

Really enjoyed doing this one - a new design to me!
