Can you tell I love flowers ?

Saturday is always my favourite day of the week and let me just say I had a simple but awesome day today. Firstly, I have known about a scrapbooking shop called Alice in Paperland which is only down the road from me but I haven't bothered to check it out till today and let me just say I am stoked to have such a fantastic shop down the road. Every where I go takes a bit of effort as we don't have a car but now I just have to walk down the road to visit what I would consider one of Sydney's best scrapbooking shops, I am a lucky girl. I also went out for lunch with my husband and parents and had one of the best doner kebab's I have ever had, it was absolutely delicious followed by an equally delicious cinnamon doughnut. I am now listening to my favourite radio station and they are playing all my favourite songs, the simple things are often the best. I do have to go to sleep early tonight though as I am working tomorrow, its going to be difficult but a one off on a saturday night is no big deal.

Ok, so the colours are not the best in this photo but I hope you all get the general picture. I have been using flowers alot in my recent cards and wasn't going to use flowers on this card but I did it again, it's becoming a habit. This card was originally going to be a Mother's day card but I didn't leave enough room for the sentiment and so made it into a Thank you card which I am sure will come in handy soon.I cut out the green hill, drew on the stems and leaves. I punched out the small green flowers and the two large flowers are fabric stickers that I recently purchased.

The Challenges I have included-
ColourQ-Challenge #82
Pals Paper Arts-Buttons

I was one of the Colour Queen Courtiers for this card over at ColourQ

I just thought I would also share one of my favourite published LO's with you today, it pretty much sums how my day went today and how important the simple things in life are. I can't believe this LO is nearly four years old. Hope all you lovely people have had a nice day as well and enjoy the rest of your weekend :)
