Jubilee tea party - and some pandas!

Good Morning all - sorry first of all to those people I haven't visited for lamost a week - I've been away on holiday and haven't managed to get organised enough to be able to blog whilst away!!!! I will try and catch up with comments as soon as I can!

Me and my lovely family went to Edinburgh - well nearer to Dunbar actually on the coast - whilst there we went to the zoo to visit the Pandas - thought you might like to see a piccie!

Isn't he just adorable? This is the male - sunshine - the female - sweetie - was in a separate enclosure and quite sleepy when we were there! Its well worth a visit - these Pandas are just adorable - oh and a small tip - if you are going book online and get a time slot to view the pandas - its busy!!

Now onto todays card:

I've created the card using an LOTV image and would like to enter it into the liliofthevalleythursdaychallenge at Lili's little fairies: Anything goes. The colour scheme has mostly influenced the other challenges I would like to enter this card into mishelfloschallenge red white and blue  challenge for June. Also the red, white and blue theme over at mymumscraftshopchallenges this week.  I've also used the sketch for the willowsketchiechallenge - but not the theme! I did try but my paper just wasn't working! Sorry guys. I would also like to enter this card into the following anything goes challenges: Crafty Sentiments Designs:craftysentiments and Simon says stampsimonsaysstampschallenge.

Looking forward to being able to upload something tomorrow too! And getting back to commenting!
Hope you are all well out there and have a wonderful extended Jubilee weekend!

Love and hugs

Rachel xx
