Flowers Galore - Midway reminder

Before I show you my card I just want to tell you how proud I am to be Canadian. Have you been watching the Olympics? They have been awesome. Did you see the men's final hockey on Sunday...Canada v Sweden? We won 3-0 yippee!!!! I was asked quite a few times who I was rooting for, United Kingdom or Canada. Although I've lived in Scotland longer than I did in Canada (30 years to 21 years) I always root for my home team if both are participating in the same event (men's curling). BUT if Canada aren't and the UK are then I'm whooping and hollering for the UK. It's ok to have TWO home teams right lol??

Enough of the waffling, here's my card...

Man oh  man I love these new images...they are fabtastic to colour and Retro Vase is no exception. I coloured the image with my Copics and somehow I managed to get a shine on the vase! I created the sentiment on my computer...I love mixing fonts.

I cannot remember for the life of me where I got these wooden buttons. They come in a clear box in two sizes and although I haven't tried, I'm sure you can easily colour them with Copics (other markers are available lol)  to match your coloured image. 

A peek at the inside. 

I haven't had any time to craft (I had this and another card made for a magazine) but hope to find an hour or two this week. I'm really struggling to fit things in now I've started looking after Coen as he needs my undivided attention and his naps range from 30 minutes to two hours!! I've changed Sadie from a Thursday night to Monday night though I was out with her Monday last week for most of the day switching back to evenings this week. Then Rocky had his post op check up at the Vet School (did I tell you he had to have an op on his cruciate last month???) on Thursday for a good part of the day and I bopped to Beyonce at night. I've calls and texts to friends are going to think I'm ignoring them lol. It's early days but I'm sure I'll get into a routine in another week or two. I'm not complaining....just telling it like it is lol.

 I'm without a car at the moment so Coen and I took the train into town. I love getting the only takes me a minute to walk to the house is just past the shelter on the left.

What a little dude!!!

That's all my news...hope you haven't been bored lol

Thanks for stopping by...have a great week.

Catch ya later xx

Fabulous card Kerry, great colours and love the left hand side embellishments, I would have done a mid-challenge reminder but never received another image, must be because I was Teacher's Pet. lol.
Coen looks a real cutie.
