Sweet Belle

Things are not going too well in my craftroom and some things have ended in the bin and a couple of cards, well I'm just not happy about them. Like for instance this card, I've inked the flowers and I'm not sure whether I should have just left them alone. The girl is a Belle 'n' Whistles image and the last of the SEI mimosa papers, sketch is Friday Sketchers.
It the last bank holiday before Christmas, the last summer weekend before the kids go back to school and I need my central heating on cos I was freezing! What happened to the Summer.
So my Hubby and BIL have been working all weekend and today is no exception, but at lunchtime they plan to pick me up in the Van to take me to Sis.
I'm still catching up with the comments while I was away and found Lynda has sent me this award too, her blog is definitely worth a visit.

There is nothing wrong with the card or the flowers, they look beautiful. Do not be so harsh on yourself.
Have a great day.
