Great card, I love the flower. Would your Hubby like to do some more ironing? mine doesn't do ironing ... or tea ... he does lots of other things though so I mustn't complain.

Hi Nic

A great card and I love your flower very much. Just perfect to embellish your creation.

Love the sound of that water fight (but not all the work that was done beforehand LOL!!).

Love Jules xx

What a gorgeous card! Lovely colours!

I'm jealous of your lovely weather: Hertfordshire has been bleak and cold, more March than June. If hubby and I had had a water fight we'd have had icicles hanging from our hair!! Yours sounds like good fun!

Another gorgeous card- not that that's surprising- what is is that I'm really liking the colour scheme and I'm not a fan of oranges and yellows normally!! Maybe I'll have to branch out sometime!! :) Love the image and layout and your flower looks fab!! :) Rachel x
