Morning all 

A beautiful day here - sunny and warm. Got the washing out already. 

Nice to be back into a routine I have to say. 

So here is my card for today. 

I have used Little Claire peel-offs to make this card on a snippet of card stock. 
The end of a piece of card I had already used. 

Then added an alcohol pen for the colour. 

Cut down the image and used the orange pen along the edge
and mounted onto a white card blank and added lines. 

The card blank was an A6 size and I cut this one down to a square - the edge of the 
original card was damaged !!

I hope you like it and would like to enter it for the following 


An interesting thought today in my pad of meditation 

" when a certain person has a particular way of perceiving the world, seeing anything beyond that will not happen"

How true is that - 

I know that there are people who I know - only see things their way
and no other way. 
And it does not matter how much effort I put in to show a different 
way - they will not see it. 
I have now have to have an open mind - listen to them, it is their 
views not mine, their perception not mine, and it is my perception not theirs. 

I can see it in my cards I have to have them "perfect" and when I point out to Den a 
"mistake" he can not even see it. 

Do you find the same? 

Cakes to bake, trifle to make with the stale cakes, so best be going 

Have a lovely day and thank you all who have visited me - your comments are 
much appreciated.

  1. Love this card Pen! Those dogs are so cute and the CAS look is just right. My failing is being too much of a perfectionist (that's Virgo for you!) and often too hard on myself. I'll be round later for some trifle! :)
