Hello everyone, washed out and not just because of the rain. So frustrating I've lost my get up and go so sorry for not dropping by you all regularly, well I do but not always up to leaving you comments on your lovely cards. A real struggle at times but gave myself a kick up the bum yesterday and made a big effort to make a card. Naomi's birthday soon and everyone's going to be shouting for their card . Took me all day but got there, real  pleased with my efforts.

Hi Carol this is just gorgeous so pretty and girly!! Sorry to hear how you are feeling - snap!! I feel exactly the same, don't know what the matter is. It is a real effort to make cards and blogging is not the same - if you find a cure let me know and I will let you know too xx

Glad it's not just be that never knows the make of the DP's Carol. I tend to use 12x12, but somehow always seem to use the part with the name first, so end up in the same predicament when I use the rest.

Your card is as always just lovely and great idea with the brad through the seam binding bow, need to try that one - if I can remember that is.

Thanks you so much for sharing your Crafty Passion with us at Stampalot challenge this month.

A lovely card Carol. Great choice of colours and design. Think lots of people are flat atm probably because we are missing sunshine. Keep your chin up and keep on making beautiful cards

Gorgeous card Carol and lucky Naomi getting this special one - mind you she is worth it. Sorry you and Aud have been under par - could a bit of retail therapy and day out with the "girls" do the trick. Off this weekend but see you when I get back. Take care.
