Just for a change... pink and green

Evening! On my way home tonight a sure sign that Autumn is nearly upon us as there were hundreds of swallows in the valley that leads to our house, all swooping and diving.  They looked so graceful that I slowed the car to a crawl so I could watch them for probably one of the last times before they make their journey south to southern Africa, not that they have had a very good summer with us this year!!

Perhaps then that's why I chose to make a summery card tonight - I'm hanging on to the promise of a warm September, although I think I'm going to have to concede defeat and start getting the jumpers out soon

I have used some My Minds Eye 6x6 papers that came free with a magazine the other month.  The paper isn't as good a quality as the real thing, but they aren't too bad :-)

I've added a Prima pearl swirl, a strip of adhesive lace and a ribbon bow, and I thought the sentiment suited the image, which is coloured with copics

I'd like to enter this card for

Supplies: Stamp - Sent With Love Gorjuss Girl, Scrapbook Sisters; Sentiment - from Set, Papermania; Papers - My Minds Eye Freebies; Pearl swirls - Prima; Lace from Stash; Pink Ribbon, Funky Farm Scrapbook Barn

Thanks for stopping by, more tomorrow

Sue xx

LOL!!! I couldn't/still can't see much/any of my dining room table (oops didn't get much cleaning done today!)
Love the sentiment with the stamp, they do go well together. Love the colours (You've been getting the same idea with the pink and green!!!) lol!
I got the paper pad with the magazine, you're right, the quality is nothing like the proper MME paper, I love the texture of the "proper" paper! They're nice though and will come in handy for something I'm sure!
