Summer days....

Hi everyone, hope all are well and have been enjoying the gorgeous weather we've been having, not so nice today here though but its meant to be nice again tomorrow! I've had a lovely few days out and about with the kids, OH is on holiday so we are just having day trips. Went to Callander on tuesday to have a picnic, and for me to go and see if I could get any more antique lace, but sadly the shop had none :0( The shop owner did say he may have some more soon though :0)

As I knew it was to be raining today I had my mind made up I was having some crafting time, so once everyone was fed and dressed I quickly nipped down to my craft desk and got stuck in, had to stop several times to help Meghan, she decided she was going to paint her en-suite, which now means I have to get the wallpapering done!
But I managed to ignore everyone and got stuck into making a few cards.
I decided to use tilda with Hawiian flower, I really do love this image, and for a change I gave her blonde hair and went with peach and green.
The papers are from the totally scrumptious Mellissa Frances pad 5th avenue, (can you keep a secret? I bought one of these pads, but when I saw it I knew I had to buy more so I could have some to keep!!Lol, so I bought 2 more pads and Ive got them hidden hehehee)

Mellissa frances papers are so lush!
You clever thing getting 3!!
It's bliss to have extra pads of the papers you hate to use.
