Lovely relaxing day

I've had a lovely day today, just noticed the time, so perhaps I should say yesterday! Had a pub lunch with a friend - Crispy Duck and Cucumber Club sandwich and chips which are just the best I have ever tasted and a glass of wine, hey I could get used to this! and caught up with another friend for coffee later on in the day!

It wasn't all R & R tho as I had to go and choose some tiles for the kitchen, extension has only been finished about 15 months and I feel it is time we added the finishing touches, got new blinds on order, so we are getting there. Waiting for carpet man to come and measure up for the lounge carpet, got to get a wiggle on as new suite being delivered next week eek... Just hallway to do and that will be the downstairs finished, don't know about you but I really hate decorating hall stairs and landing, so much so that it hasn't been done since before my youngest was born, and he's 13, so it's long overdue :-(

Haven't managed to get much crafting done over the last couple of days, too much blog hopping! Anyway thought I should make at least one card today and here it is....



This one qualifies for the Cute Card Thursday challenge 48 which is

"Signs of Spring"
This could be interpreted through your image, an embellishment or even your colour-scheme.

I decided to use these papers from a HOTP Citrus pad I have had for ages. These colours always remind me of the spring and the feathers remind me of the cute little ducklings we will see soon - okay I know they won't be blue!
I have used the sketch from this week's Sketch Saturday challenge - hey 2 in 1, haven't managed that for ages.

Recipe

Very sweet. Love the Hanglar image you have used. That colour combo is certainly 'Springy'.
