Simply Create - donate a card

Hi folks and yes! yes! yes I can actually say it's a beautiful sunny day in NE Scotland and about time to. After Sunday mornings weather, thought we had jumped right into winter, seriously, we had hailstones and they were lying on the patio, brrrrrrr! Worse than that I have had withdrawel symptoms, no Internet since Friday. Finally re-connected last night only to find there was another fault, keeping my fingers and toes crossed internet doesn't go walk about again. Fine time for hubby to be on holiday, I know there is plenty more of them but it's nice to get the personal touch!.
Right, off to Simply Create this Saturday to Crop, Shop and have lots of fun and at the same time raise money for Save the Children. Hopefully meet some kent faces and have a play with Kath.
Bringing along my card for re-sale to raise funds for this worth while cause.
Played with Hero Arts  background stamps ( oh I wish I hadn't been so hasty in flinging away the packaging, can never remember what they are. Will have to set some time out to remedy this and get myself organised, that is a tall order!!)  Ah the checked image is Large Plaid pattern. Do know that I have used a Penny Black stamp, Poppy Poem (gorgeous). Sentiment, Crafter's Companion. All inked with TH distressing ink Barn Door. Added checked ribbon, craftworks candy and hand made poppy dusted with Glamour Dust.

Would also like to enter this weeks challenge over at Papertake Weekly Challenge -  Just the One. Mine being my flower
Edited - Thanks Lisa for your comment and love your theme ( Ladybugs ) for celebrating your 150 followers and congrats on your new DT post. Red for Ladybird, just managed to squeeze in the black dot!
