My friend has a fabulous new car - a James Bond Car!!!! It's an Aston Martin Volante - I don't usually get excited about cars but woo what a car, such a smooth ride!! The sun came out which meant I had to put my sunglasses on as well!!!! Here's the car
The Brecon Beacons are lovely. The scenary there is beautiful and it's quite desolate in places. I imagine it looks breathtaking in the winter covered in snow.
It was warm enough for us to have the top down on the car and I could put my camera on the frame of the windscreen and take pics. The drive was so smooth that my pics didn't blur!!
and we parked up here and took a few more
In the summer when everything is green and lush this will look quite different but I think it looks nice now as there are lots of different colours.
We laughed when we stopped to take those last few pictures as in the middle of nowhere there was an ice cream van parked up ready for business. He looked quite disappointed when we didn't buy his ice cream!!!

The 'Girl' lettering was cut using Provocraft Babyface Alphabet - I used the letter that came out of the circles on the other baby card that I made!!

For this card, I have used design papers that I bought from The Works. They were really good value, 20 papers in the pack for 59p a pack or 2 for £1 - they are 12 x 12 in size.
I made a little all in one vest - I think they say a 'onesie' in the US - using some pink gingham papers and edged it with some distress ink. I put a organza bow onto it and hung a little charm from the bow.
I'd like to enter the card into the following challenges

The sentiment was a freebie downloaded from the net which I changed to purple ink and mounted it on a mat which I cut using nesties.

On this card I have used my new Nellie Snellen Heart Die - I absolutely love this die. I think it looks fantastic on wedding cards and I've used it on several recently.
I embossed the dress with Swiss Dots and outlined it with a Sakura pen. I added ric rac to the hem and wait and some pearls.
Sentiment Lettering is Sizzix Wallflower which I have used Stickles on.

I find Fabricland to be a great store but sometimes limited on choice of nice colours and patterns. They told me that they should be getting more 100% cotton fabric in now the summer is coming so I will look forward to that. Fabricland only have stores in the South of England at the moment.
I found a seller in Korea on ebay that had some pretty FQ sized fabric. They had some pretty colours and it worked out to be an ok price - around £1.47 each inc postage. The postage time was about 10 days so not bad at all. The fabric is not that thick and slightly stiff but lovely colours and patterns. Have a look here as they have many designs and colours.
Here are the ones that I bought

Today, I went to Tesco's and they have some great examples at really cheap prices. They had these gorgeous canvas pumps in 2 colours for just £6
I wanted the cream pumps but they didn't have my size!!!!
