LIM 60

Hi Folks,
Hope you are having a good day today, I'm getting back into the swing of things after my break! Here is my LIM offering this week Chrissie and Mandi have challenged us to combine three themes from previous challenges. So this week is a recipe
 Take Three Challenges


So my chosen weeks were:
Week 6, One layer, off the edge.
Week 23, One layer, something with legs
Week 28, Use ink.
I've gone all vintage and romantic this week, it must be the sunshine. It's another fabulous day here in the SE of the UK lovely and warm. I've washed all the linen I can get my hands on and caught up with my DT peices and the h...........k, (dirty word) can wait so I'm hoping to be able to spend a little time in the garden this aft. I really hope that you're getting the sunshine too!!


I chose a stamp by Stampendous, the lady a border stamp by Kimberly Polson and a little piece of lace. My sentiment came from Unity. Have fun folks and thankyou for stopping to look :0) Gay x

Now that's what I call a vintage card, it's stunning and the lace is a perfect finishing touch, sounds like you've been busy.....I felt quite saintly giving our bedroom a good spring clean...you've put me to shame...oh well I'm at work again tomorrow so won't see the dirt while Im out...but I'm sure it will still be there when I get home :-(

oooo you're so good making a one layer card...this is just lovely in the sepia tones, very vintage.
I would be happy if the summer didn't get any warmer than this! We could do with some rain though...our allotment is like a dust pit! Hope you enjoy your gardening time :0)

It's been glorious here in Yorkshire too. It sounds like we've got one more day to make the most of it so I'm with you on the Housework. It'll keep until a colder day!!
Have fun
