Everyday is a sweet treat with you!

Happy Saturday everyone!  Well I am now back from sunny Florida and what a great time we had.  The weather was perfect - hot but not too hot at 85-87 degs (that's 29-30 deg celsius to us Brits!) with a packed out itinerary including visiting the theme parks, jet skiing, swimming with dolphins and whizzing around in speed boats.  Then back home yesterday - wet, cold, grey - bleh!  But how brilliant to be back with our dogs who I missed a lot!  And of course I missed the crafting too and my crafty mates!  I'll be around later on my blog rounds to see you all once I've done all the clothes washing!

Anyhoo, I'm here today to show off some more gorgeous Quixotic Inspirations goodies!  I'm still loving my new Big Anyas so here's my DT card using The Greeting Farm - Anya Treats...





I matched her up with papers from the My Mind's Eye Miss Caroline Howdy Doody pad and embellished it using My Favorite Things Die-Namics Medium Leafy Flourish die and Rolled Mum flower die.

Okay, I gotta go now - see you later on my blog rounds!

So good to have you back, hun!! And glad to hear you had a fab time - bet it was a shock to the system of how cold it's turned (and how bloomin' dark!!!) Your card is absolutely gorgeous (as always!!), I LOVE how you've reflected the design on the paper with your embellies in the corner. These new Anyas are fab, I'm waiting for some pennies so that I can buy some of them! Hugs, Marie xx
