Card for Uncle Derek

Happy Saturday!  It's been a lovely sunny day today, after an solid day's rain yesterday.  Can't complain really as we had the driest September since records began - though with the calendar moving into October the weather has caught up and there's a definite nip in the air in the evening now.  Though I'm glad I got my garden all sorted last weekend and all my winter potting done as we're due another days rain tomorrow.

I managed to get a wee sit down and a play with my crafty stash, for World Cardmaking Day :)
This card is for my uncle - I've used this Penny Black image  coloured with pencils and some sparkle added to the bee's wings.  I chalked in some clouds and added a wee star die border from Taylored Expressions.

  1. Super card, Lynne. Love the cute image. I like your border of stars, also.
    It has been dry here, too....rain needed. But, it rained a little and then turned really cool and very windy. I don't like it. Ha

    Back to the football game.
