Floral background

Hi there , welcome to my blog . Thank you for calling in .
Today is Monday .Funny how life and times change . When I  was younger I hated Monday as I am sure some people still do these days .
But now! Well,  I really look forward to my DT duties for Make it Monday  . I have had  all week to browse through 100s of entries . I'm so full of inspiration , I could just POP !!
Seriously , thank you to everyone who takes part .Thank you Michelle for running the show and thank you to the other DT members who give of their time to create and post and comment .Please visit DT members and leave them some blog love too .Their names are on my side bar , just click and you are on your way .

Congratulations to both winners last week .
When commenting on another’s MIM entry don’t forget to mention that you saw it on MIM and the more entries you comment on in this way, the more chances you have of winning.
My card this week features some of our sponsor's digi papers

I began with a Bashful Blue card base.  The image is from my computer. The sentiment from Just Believe set SU. The floral background paper is from this weeks sponsor,
  the lovely Mandy over at

Mandy is so kindly offering the new release Soft Whispers paper collection. Each set of these gorgeous papers come in 8 soft dreamy colours!

And now .[.I wonder if you thought that I had forgotten because I have not mentioned this part yet .] I have an entry I would love to share with you as my pick of the week .

                                                          Not just a card .
Karen did a wonderful water theme scene .Just look at the water  all a sparkle.

 So there you go .Another Monday begins happily .Hope that you have enjoyed the browsing here .
