Aurora Colour Bingo - Pansy - Green-Red-Purple

Afternoon peeps.  I will be watching the football tonight so we had our main meal midday instead of tonight.  As England has been knocked out(say no more about that)  I will be supporting France as that is where my Daughter and Son-in Law live.  Kick off at 5 pm so will be having a bits and pieces tea on our lap.

My card today is just because I want too.

One of my neighbours in my apartment block who I sometimes make special cards for saw my DT card and said can I have one of those cards for my Granddaughter's Birthday.  I said yes you can have this one and I will put Granddaughter on the front for you and a insert if you tell me what you want inside.  She said no I want the same but different!!!  When I asked what she wanted different she said she wasn't sure.  Lol!!!   She did know she wanted the same papers and image. This is what I came up with.  An easel version and added some Ladybirds as I know she loves Ladybirds.

Full Tum !!!

Morning peeps.  Hope you are all well?  Not too happy this morning, had problems with my phone and phone bill yesterday.  Also went out shopping for a couple of hours and came home to find the apartment full of steam and very hot.  Being quick I opened the boiler cupboard, the door and handle was red hot and the steam came out at me. The thermostat seems to have gone and also it was leaking water from the bottom of the smaller tank that we have.  So this morning it is a matter of boiling kettles to wash up and to have a strip wash.  The repair man is suppose to be out about 9.30 this morning!!!!

On a happy note here is my card today.

Hi Peeps.  It is time once again for another Challenge to start over at CHALLENGES 4 EVERYBODY  THIS TIME IT ISN'T ANYTHING GOES.  The Challenge is set around our Challenge logo.  It must contain :- LADY BUGS - CLOUDS OR BLOSSOMS.  Also the colours:- BLUE - BROWN - RED - BLACK AND WHITE.  It is still on for a month and you still can only enter three times.
