you gotta have faith

Hello Lovelies - well its been a good day for us - I got some housework done then we all went off to a local playbarn. The girls had a good run around and I got some crafting done. Then we all went to a friends toyshop looking for birthday presents for some other friends. Finally we landed up at my mum and dads and had a lovely tea. So an all round fun day really.

I have a card to share with you that I started almost two weeks ago at coffee pot. The idea was to use chalks and stencils. I hadn't used chalks in such a long time it was lovely and very therapeutic. I did two pieces using a variety of leaf stencils and put them together in this card.


I hope you like it!

Big hugs to you and hope the rest of your weekend goes well.
