Chilly Sunday

Yesterday wasn't a fun day, it never warmed up and I couldn't get warm, my craft stuff in is split in two places (the weathermen said it would be warming up, well at least the forecast I heard)Hubby decided he had time to start pulling up the tiles in the kitchen to make way for the new flooring. So I feel I'm in a terrible muddle instead of organised chaos and my Secret Project is running late too, extended date is Tuesday when I should be handing it over. I left the best photos till last for the secret project so in theory it should be easy, so lets make a card instead. The Penny Black Saturday challenge is for Pink and Brown, so I grabbed some pink patterned paper and brown card and using another of my new stamps this one cost 50p made this card. Not sure if I'm happy with it, in hindsight I think I would have cut out the gate and not just the basket and hat. I have no idea what the paper is they were scraps but the pinky chocolate flowers are from Poppicrafts.

The Award below comes from Linda in Norway, amazing isn't how the hands of crafts spread across the world. Many Thanks Linda.
The following two awards are from my good friend Karin, thanks. She has a great challenge blog where you follow a sketch and if you want, make two cards one for Christmas and one for Birthdays.
