Good morning to you all in the land of blog
Welcome back Cathy hope you are now all relaxed :) thank you Karen for resolving my senior and blonde moment. 
I of course was forced to play all weekend in my Beach Hut, you see the weather was just terrible, like a swimming pool outside the door!!! just no idea where our sun has gone to, but I have a feeling some people are maybe being a little selfish with it and not sharing (think you know who you are :) .........................................

So one of the creations I made yesterday was this little LIM number, you see these LIM challenges are getting under my skin, and I just love a thinking this would be quite quick set off with my idea, two hours later and arms aching from cutting out and I love the outcome, hope you do too.
I made a full PATP card with a very old Sarah Kay image and a My Sentiments Exactly matching pair sentiment.  I used papers from the Bloomsbury collection, from Grimsby Crafts out of my scraps.

Here is a close up of the image
a spotty dress, a floral pinafore and plain ribbon and shoes.

I would like to say hello to my new followers and thank you to all of my wonderful visitors, who take the time to leave me such lovely and inspiring comments, which allows me to hop back over to see you all too.

Don't forget I have two candies running this week
My house mouse challenge linked Candy here 
My other candy here 

do hope you will join in :)

Hoping to be hitting my 1000 followers shortly so starting to think about what I am going to put in the big candy, so exciting have lots of ideas.

Anyway would love to enter this little number into the following challenges and thank you to feline for your support with this

Two Sisters - Anything Goes
digi designs - spotty and dotty
Less is More - Paper piecing
Crafty Ribbons - Clean and Simple

enjoy the rest of your day

What a beautiful card - well worth those hours of cutting I think! I love the CAS look too - it really gives a classical feel to the card which goes perfectly with your SK image.
