Penny Black Saturday Challenge wk 103

Good Morning and a Happy 1st June.

Well I`m back from my weekend away. It could have been a better weekend but still we`ve had a rest and I must admit Alan needed it much more than me. He had to work friday evening so we didn`t get away until saturday and it rained. My goodness did it rain! Much as I like to hear the sound of gentle raindrops on the caravan roof, I prefer sunshine streaming through the windows lol. And it was really cold aswell, couldn`t believe it after the weekend before when it was too hot. The weather forecast was for sunshine and showers on sunday with a bit of a breeze along the coast. Well we weren`t on the coast and we got black clouds and gales. Breezy...pah! It was so strong at least 2 awnings on the site were ruined and I feel for the people in tents. Usually if we go for a weekend we leave mid afternoon but we were asked to leave at 11 o` clock on monday as the site was really busy. Guess what? ...Brilliant sunshine!
It did, however, give me a chance to do some crafting which is always a good thing and we did still enjoy ourselves, so much so that we are going again in a couple of weeks. Fingers crossed for the weather!

On to my card for today then. I started making this card last week but ran out of time to finish it. Luckily for me the theme for this week at Penny Black Saturday Challenge is in the garden so I just adapted it slightly.
  The stamp is PB Nap Time and I love it because it`s so versatile. I`ve coloured with watercolour pencils and cut out with a circle nestie.
The pink spotty paper is  Pink Petticoat`s Dots and the green is Pink Petticoat Spring collection.
I`ve added some bright pink dotty ribbon from the Range.
The dark pink flowers are Prima and the white ones are punched out of plain white copy paper. I`ve added some yellow flat backed pearls to match the  daisy in the image which I`ve glittered.

Thanks for popping in, enjoy the rest of your day
