What a great fun bright card and tag - just to remind of what brightness is !!, as it's cloudy here in Sussex and i don't think it's going to improve either !!!, Luv Sam x

Hi Coops

A great card and tag .. .. such lovely bright colours and a fun image.

I think you should get that washing out. Mine dried yesterday (in-between showers) .. .. and of course now it smells lovely of fresh air which is the best bit!!

Sadly I also have more ironing now :-(

Hope you are having a good Bank Holiday weekend.

Love Jules xx

Just gorgeous, love that the card and tag match, fab colours and a great image. I am not going to chance my washing as it looks like it's going to rain any time now and I absolutely hate putting it out, getting it in, putting it out again... I'd rather dry it inside ;-)
