Hoping for sun!

Hi everyone, well the sad news is that I didn't win the lottery!! But the goodies that I chose with my win at the Craft Barn arrived this morning:)

Hexagons may never rear their heads again for a challenge but I treated myself to a small die and as you can see the Indigoblu stamp background  is appropriate and the top stamp set contains a bee, so I'm all set ;;) I have also chosen a stamp set from Acid Drops and Whatnots which is winging it's way as we speak  :)

We are off tomorrow morning to deepest Somerset to visit my sister Karen and then Monday we are going down to Brixham to stay with friends for a few days so no crafting till next weekend! 
I have been busy creating a book card for our Rock Choir leader, who is getting married next month and although I still have to add the sentiments and some more embellies I thought I'd post it now as I have nothing else to show you!!!

I used  paperclay to make the initials and the flowers, leaves and butterflies. Most of the DP is from Anna Griffin and the dies are Fleur de Lys and a MB vine.

Thanks for taking the time to visit and hopefully comment so that I can visit you:)

I'd say you made a good choice for your prize. Enjoy your time in somerset and if the weather isn't the best you might get the chance to play in Karen's stash!! Those book cards are impressive aren't they. Hope the sun shines for you in Brixham - lovely place.

Hi Val.......lovely goodies you've chosen. Sitting here having a cuppa and it's pouring with rain! Hopefully by the time you arrive it will have disappeared.........fingers crossed! Your book card is looking lovely and I'm sure your RC leader will love it. See you in a few hours.
