Time Well Spent

It shows how much time I spend chatting on the phone!! We have no phone right now as ours is a radio telephone which depends on battery power and that depends on solar panels. We have had practically no sun for nearly a week now so consequently the batteries have no power! Big floods further west of us [not even an hour away]but we have had only a bit of mist - amazing. I don't like floods but we do need rain!

So what more can I do but surf the net or make cards [forget the housework!!] This card uses the gift set that Stampin' Up! gave to all of its active demonstrators last year. This set will also be a Level 3 Hostess set in the next catalogue which comes out in a few month's time.

The little heart pocket was a template for a recent challenge on SCS. Again I was experimenting with colour combos and these Stampin' Up! colours are Rose Red, Apricot Appeal and Sage Shadow with a little black.
