Good morning, another dull cold day here in Fife.   Saying that we had the most stunning sun rise!!!  And if the old saying of red sky at night Shepherds Delight, red sky in the morning Shepherds Warning well those storms they are saying are on there way, could be as bad as they are saying.
Thank you for all your lovely comments on my Wedding Card, they give me the encouragement to carry on.  Today's card is for a lady who handed in a large bag of one and two pennies, these go to the Maggies Centre Dundee, they will make good use of them. I have made this little card with those bits that are left after making other things, the back ground card is left over from the wedding card, the die cut layers are ones that had cut out and discovered I had put the embossed card in the wrong way when I was cutting out the die - put them to one side as scrap then thought no use them. The Aster flower was one I had cut to use on the wedding card but didn't look right.  So really the card has been made out of scrap.

Well that's it all for today.  I haven't got plans for this weekend. That could change you never know with my family.  What ever you are doing have fun and keep safe especially with all this weather warnings.
