Just like the White Rabbit - I'm Late!

I'm late in my setting up my blog post this week. I'm having too much fun out and about. Sunday was spent with lovely Red Hat friends cruising on a canal boat on the River Lea and having fresh baked scones with jam and cream and endless cups of tea. The second one this week, I shared fresh local strawberries and more scones with a neighbour, Julie, in support of our local village shop.  How did I ever go to work?

The lovely challenge on OSAAT this week is Anything Goes with Red, White and Blue. So time to be either very patriotic or just have fun.

My card this week features Alipeeps Art image, Peacock Profiles and you can find here.

In homage to Jane and Samara of the OSAAT teamies and my lovely friend Ingrid, their hair colours are amazing.

I've used some embossed dots card as a base and cut a rectangle with a die from Spellbinders 5 x 7 Matting Basics and used it as a background for the largest Spellbinders 5 x 7 Elegant Labels 4. The white card I've cut with a die from the Grand Calibur Labels 4 set. It fitted perfectly and I've added some red feathers from my hat trimmings stash.

One for The Man In Your Life.

It's time for a new challenge at One Stitch At A Time and out theme this week is Anything Goes with Men.

For my Card this week I chose Stitchy Stamp's brilliant image called Cup Full and you can find it here  What a great image and such fun to colour with Promarkers too. He's the Morning Angel bringing our tea or coffee.
