Purple bits and bobs, nothing new

Good morning Bloggers, no doubt most of you are basking in the sun but for me it is too much. Anything over 20 and I am like a limp rag! 

I, for one will be glued to the TV screen this afternoon watching our boys in the Tour de France. Did anyone see how Froome and Porte completely took over yesterday? Not a tennis fan but hope that Murray will do well.

Here is another card made before my shoulder decided not to play. Thank goodness I am finally managing to get some crafting in now and will hopefully soon have new ones to show you LOL.
Anyhow, without more ado, here is my card made with bits from the scrap box apart from the base card.

Base card is hammered card from PMS way before the Mansfield shop closed. I found a matching piece in my scrap box just big enough for the Marianne cut and emboss folder, then  layered it onto a piece of mirri card which was just big enough too, then onto the base card.  Flower punched with EK Success and Xcut, spiky leaves punched with McGill and the other leaves are Memory Box die cuts. That's all there is to it, very cheap and very simple :o)

Lovely Jackie. Even better by using up all the odds and ends. Hope your shoulders are getting better soon - very depressing when it is one thing after another. Fingers crossed. Have put security bits on my blog now - so will wait and see. Thanks for your support. xx

You say it is nothing special, but I think it is unusually pretty and special. The cut/embossing folder is elegant and I love your combination of flower pieces. I wasn't understanding anything over 20 and now I'm thinking you are talking about celsius ....haha Missed all the Tour de France. I usually catch some of it. Rain rain rain rain here. Time to build an ark.
