Here Comes the sun (fingers crossed)

Hi all I'm back as promised with my card 
for this weeks Papertake Weekly

This week's theme is 


Which is sponsored by the Ribbon Girl.

I don't know whether this theme will jinx things 
especially as Wimbledon has just started,
they got rained off yesterday and it has been cloudy
and dull all day here, but fingers crossed the sun
will arrive soon. Pleeeeeez! 

Not to sure whether i like this card or not, i 
think it's because there's no flowers or ribbons on it. 

Shaped the card on my rotary cutter
with the wave shape.
I have used one of Sheena's rubber stamps
i think this one is just the two of us.
Coloured with polychromos pencils and i added
glitter glue to the girls costume.
Made a beach scene with some Raspberry
Road digi papers on the computer.
The sentiment is from LOTV.
Shells off the beach at the end of the road,
had fun looking for tiny ones to go on the card.

Oooh!  Oooh!
just had a thought i should have stamped
the sentiment onto yellow card
it would have looked like the sun.
Gurrr! To late now.
Never mind.

 Also thought i would share with you these piccies
i have taken of my fuchsia's,
they are one of my favourite flowers.
This first one is a Standard that i grew myself 
from a cutting, This is it's third flowering year and 
it's not let me down this is the best it's ever been.

The rest i have bought this year to go in 
my hanging baskets and pots.
They are just coming out and looking beautiful.

Thanks for stopping by
ta ta for now
