Happiness is stamping with friends!

Rainy Days


Papillion Potpourri HM'13 (3)Hi bloggies!

Well … I have decided my recently new blog look is completely appropriate! We are feeling very soggy after 9 days straight of rain! Sometimes torrential … but definitely consistent. But … I do LOVE the rain … and never complain because it means our water tanks are FULL! (We don’t have access to town water where we live!) The kids have friends over & are doing a Lord of the Rings movie marathon (extended versions) — what else do you do on a rainy Saturday when soccer has been cancelled? It is also perfect weather for stamping … and in the midst of my busy-ness (21st party prep & wedding planning) I have HAD to sit down today & stamp! I had 3 birthday cards due … including Skye’s 21st. So … while Sunday lunch is cooking in the oven … I actually did some stamping! 🙂

This one is very similar to one created by Lisa from I’m in Haven. (Am such a fan of her work … I have been subscribed to her blog for years!) I substituted her flowers for butterflies … and popped one up on dimensionals. Simply but so pretty!

Anyway, I still have dessert to bake for tomorrow’s lunch. (All the family come after church for Sunday lunch each week.) And … I must finish those urgent cards! Hugs xxx

  3. Lovely and simple yet the butterflies give it a wow factor. The rain is great for tanks, but does get a bit boring after a while lol. Stay warm xx
