Better late then never..........

Good morning all.
I hope you are all well.
I am late this morning, i had `one of those days` at work yesterday so we went to the nursery when i finished and get yet more plants plus on the way we took some junk to the recycling centre.:D
I am hoping to plant them out later if it dries up a little.
I made my card late last night but i did not stick it all down until this morning.
 I have stripped my beds, sorted out whats for tea and then my camera decided the battery needs charging so apologies for my pics, i had to take them quick.
So enough of my waffle and on to my card which i am entering into the following challenges:
1.Crafting When We Can Challenge - Challenge 73 - Friendship
2.Everybody Art Challenge - Challenge 286 - Monchrome (blues, which the papers are too but the pics aren`t showing it)
3.Crafting For All Seasons Challenge - Challenge 81 - Tic, tac, toe (Blue, buttons, ribbon)
4.My Time To Craft Challenge - Challenge 253 - Paper piecing

Products used are:
White card
Docrafts Parisienne Blue papers
Blue lace and ribbon
Gems
Stickles stardust
Blue flower buttons
Twine
Distress tool
Woodware Huge Friend stamp
I have paper pieced the letters and added some gems.

and a sideways view.
Thanks so much for looking.
I am off out to get the Sunday papers now and some veggies for tea :D
Hugs Nic.

Morning, Nic! We spent a few hours in the garden yesterday, making it look a little less wild, so I hope it clears up so that you can get your new plants in. We've got sunshine and blue skies, so I'll try and send some your way!
Love these Woodware word stamps - fab paper pieceing and lots of lovely details! Hugs, Lisa x

Hi Nic,

I am way beyond late with leaving comments!! I've still be sorting through stash and moving everything back in my room, so tonight is a bit of a commenting marathon!

I love this card, those big sentiment stamps are fabulous, they really make a statement and are perfect for paper piecing.

Big hugs
