Stampin' for the Weekend - Feeling Floral

Challenge 18 at Stampin' for the Weekend is Feeling Floral.  I made this card for my friends birthday and never got round to posting it on my blog.  I got the idea for this card from an amazing blog called Kittie Kraft ttp://  I loved the technique Kittie had used for her card.  The stamp I've used is a Hero Arts.  The sentiment is a peel off. I'm really pleased with how the card came out, but I think it would have looked better with maybe a wider flower image.  Another excuse to buy a new stamp lol.

Tour of Britain 2012

On Monday me, hubby and Archie went to watch the 2nd stage of Tour of Britain fly past.  As mentioned on the website Stage Two sees the return of an old venue – Nottingham – and the addition of a new venue – Knowsley – as The Tour of Britain returns to Merseyside for the first time since 2008. Hubby has watched every stage of the Tour de France, the Olympics cycling (go Chris Hoy MBE and Victoria Pembleton MBE) and now the Tour of Britain, so there was no way we wouldn't go and see the riders.  I thought tho' that I would have been able to recognise Bradley, looking for his famous side burns. No chance. Its just a good job that the camera was taken so that looking back we could make out where Bradley Wiggins was and Mark Cavendish were. Bradley was at the front with the black top and blue stripe down his helmet, and Mark had the white top on with black helmet.
