good evening all, well i had a gorgeous lunch out today, roast lamb with all the trimmings and rhubarb and apple crumble with custard, yum.so when i got back home i was feeling rather full and chilled out and instead of tackling the ironing i made this card instead.lol.now i was going to use these 2 images on there own but they just scream at you to be used together.you can just tell they have got a little something going on together outside work, lol.

products used are papermania v&a paper.basic grey papers.faux stitching.little sentiment stamp i found in the neglected stamp drawer.pearl brad.stardust stickles.whiff of joy doctor and nurse coloured with promarkers.blue chalk.
