My lovely day in the Lakes..

How are we all today? I am feeling a little tired today, had a long day out yesterday but it was very nice. The weather turned out to be lovely too which made the day nice. As my Mam & Dad took me to the Lakes I thought it would be nice if I made them a little "Thank You" card, and I've got it here to share with you.
Mam and me went into The World of Beatrix Potter at Windermere, so it HAD to be a Beatrix Potter card & it HAD to be Peter Rabbit too!!
I have used my Peter Rabbit CD Rom, I printed the image & the blue gingham paper along with the sentiments. I added green cardstock, green rick rack ribbon, the border has been cut with a Martha Stewart doily lace border punch, I embossed the white card with a small flower embossing folder. Butterflies are punched with Martha Stewart monarch butterfly punch & added jewels from my stash. You can't really tell but I have sprayed & sparkled my image & the butterflies. You can find Beatrix Potter CD Rom's HERE.
I decorated the inside of the card too.
I used spotty paper on the inside & on the left-handside I thought it would be nice to add a picture from our day out. I took some nice ones inside Beatrix Potter which I would've liked but they were on Mam's camera - oops! So I used this one took by the Lake at Keswick.
I would like to enter my card into the following challenges:
Simon Says Stamp Challenge - BINGO. I'm going for Ribbon, Gems & Punches.
Papertake Weekly - Anything Goes
I have some photos to share with you from Beatrix Potter.
This is Petter Rabbit's Garden, with his little jacket & shoes hanging at the back.
And here is Beatrix Potter sitting as you arrive with all her little characters.
It was a really lovely day & if you haven't been into the world of Beatrix Potter I really would go as it was really nice.
I can't believe my holidays are nearlly over, booooooooooooooo I go back to work on Wednesday so I do still have a couple of days left, PHEW! LOL Hope you all have a FAB day I can't wait for tonight's Olympics with Tom Daley!! Woooooooooooo fingers crossed we can get into the final tomorrow night!
