Pixies Snippets challenge week 174.....

I've been AWOL because we made use of the glorious sunshine we had over the past week and had a week away....weren't we lucky with the weather and what a change today cold and raining....got back yesterday so lots of washing and ironing to be done now...

I manage to find a card that was suitable for Pixies Snippets challenge 
its one I made a couple of months ago but it is from snippets of embossed card.  The card itself is only a 4 x 4 card but I had this gorgeous image left over from a sheet of images I bought from Kanban years ago. 
 The embossing folders are both from SU and a Marianne swirl....

Hopefully normal service will be resume in the craft room later in the week as I now need to crack on with samples for next month club meeting...

What a beautiful card Anne. I do love that pretty lady and every element looks like it was made for each other.
I am glad you got to get away for a while and that the weather was good.
I know how chilly it can be in the Stonehenge area.

Hi Anne,

I just saw your comment (thank you) and realised it seemed ages since I saw you pop up on my reading list so thought I had better check. And it looks like I've missed one or two although no idea why they didn't come on on my list, so can only apologies.

Loving the blue hollyhocks in the post below, a real fav cottage garden flower and and PB stamp. Also a a lovely image in this pretty girly card.
