Papertake Weekly, Cute Card Thursday # 162, Lily of the Valley # 94, Moving Along With TheTimes # 96 and Totally Gorjuss # 78

We are having some fantastic weather at the minute, great for the girls when they are off school as it normally rains on school holidays.  They go back on Tuesday and then Hollie is off again on Thursday and Friday.  On Thursday we have local elections and her school is used as a polling station and on Friday she is getting off in lieu of the Royal Wedding as they were still on their Easter holidays.

I got a chance to start a card last night after another nice barbecue and before I started a load of ironing.  To warm to cook inside and great to get all your washing and bedding done and aired. Got it finished this morning, so thought I would post it now before I start to do some more gardening.

This is so pretty Donna and fits perfectly with my mood this week - I have loved watching the wedding! :)

I really love your use and layering of the MS punch, and the pink, black and white colour-scheme is so classic.

Beautiful wedding card, and gorgeous colouring.

Very cute card. The black and white are so striking and work so well with this MS punch. Like the touch of colour with more pastel shades.
