Une Belle Journée

Une belle journée... a beautiful day!

Today hubby is off work... a rare occassion on a Saturday, so I'll be able to spend some time with him. I think a little bit of gardening is on the cards... I bought some lovely violas which are waiting patiently to be planted out :)

Today is also the start of a new challenge over at Di's Digi Designs Challenge Blog... and the theme is EMBOSSING. For my card I've used a really cute digi stamp from Di's Digi Downloads. I have to say I'm quite pleased (makes a change) with this card... I just love the vibrant colours. We are sponsored by Joanna Sheen who is offering a £10 Gift Voucher to the lucky winner... and there's loads of lovely things to spend it on, and free P&P!

Well, off to get my gardening gloves on... my little flowers are waiting :)
