Quick and simple and an award

Well it's another sunny morning here and we're looking forward to venturing out to the city centre in a while. This card is for Cardvaarks - 'pink, black and white and Creative Inspirations - 'spots, dots and circles':

Well after spending a good couple of hours in my craft room yesterday, I only managed to make this one card, how typical is that? The spotty dotty paper is Doodlebug and the butterfly is from Spellbinders. I cut it on black gloss card and it's a bit tricky to show the detail on but here goes:

I also got this award from Chrissie - thanks Chrissie! Like Chrisse I thought it implied I'm a lazy so and so but I did a double check on the spelling too!

So I need to list five things I like and then pass this on to five other bloggers.

  1. Shoes and handbags
  2. Stash shopping
  3. People watching
  4. The smell of clean washing
  5. Watching my babies sleeping
I'm passing this on to: Sue, Karen, Tammy, Sarita and Patti

Well if we get chance later while we're out we might pop to the market square which is currently a beach! Sounds like something Zac might enjoy. Then home for a lazy afternoon with hopefully some crafting as there are some fab challenges to join in today!
