What a day



Today was certainly a busy Sunday, my husband and I have finished mostly everything in regards to booklets and name cards for my friends wedding, still a few things to do that we will get done during the week, my friends wedding is on Friday.

In my last post I was complaining about the weather, today  wasn't too bad. It did rain but it was actually hot and there was no need for a cardigan, which was awesome, I feel I have actually experienced some summer now for this year.

Today's card is just a simple card on which I used some of my favourite digital images.  I really didn't know what sentiment to put on the card and then I thought "Just Because" would be just fine, it was one of the songs I had listened today by Anita Baker, always great when I can combine my love of music with cardmaking. For once I was able to make my bow without too much fuss and I was also able to find all the coloured papers etc quite easily to go with the CQC colour combo. I have used "Before the rain" font again, I really do have to stop using this font but I just love it.

The challenges I have included-
CQC #126-colourQ
Getting digi with it-The Sisterhood of Crafters
Things with wings-DYSU Challenge blog
Anything goes-Paper Crafting Journey
Music to the soul (Just because by Anita Baker)-Delicious Doodles Challenges
