Going around in circles!

Oh dear, it's raining again! Of course today's the day my daughter decides to do loads of washing, both clotheshorses are groaning under a weight of wet washing!!

Today's card is for our Church Administrator, who retired on Thursday. He was always wonderful when I forgot my keys to open up the hall where we hold our Toddler Groups! He was even more wonderful this week when I dropped my keys down the grate covering the Church hot air heating system! My middle name really should be 'Plonker!!!'

I got out my dies for this one. The base, circles and scallops were all cut with either Grand or ordinary Nesties and layered together. I used oddments of card and also a scrap of spotty paper from Nitwits.

The sentiment is from a set by The Greeting Farm, and the cute duck was a freebie many moons ago when I was starting carding and came with one of those 'Let's Make Cards' packs.

 It's going to be my second blogaversary in May (where does the time go?!) and I'm collecting some goodies for a celebratory candy, so watch this space!!

I hope everyone's having a good weekend in spite of the damp, grey weather.

 Thanks for looking!

Great card Mags, love the fishing image, my son would love it too. Your little card is very cute and I really like the shape of the card, mine are usually plain ole rectangles!

Have a good evening xx

Aww this is utterly stunning!
I bet he loved this wee cheery "sunshine" card! The image is perfect and I love the sentiment!
You sound a bit like me, very accident prone!! I can be sitting in the place and lose my scissors and not find them for months lol!!
Take care
Hugs Melly xx
