I have used an All Dressed Up image to create my card today. It took a while to get the image to print how I wanted it to, but I eventually got there. I used a butterfly image and added two borders, the first in red and the second in yellow. I printed this onto a Papermania patterned paper and then stamped 'Best Wishes' sentiment to the bottom of the card. I coloured the image using the promarker sets - Hues (5 pack), Pastels (5 pack), and the limited edition Summer and Autumn.

I got my first mini vase of cut flowers from the allotment today and they smell lovely. My gooseberries are also almost ready to be picked - and so far the net has kept the birds away!
AUDIO BOOK REVIEW
I have just finished Death at the Opera by Gladys Mitchell (ISIS). This is a Mrs. Bradley mystery book where a death occurs of a teacher during an opera performance and although the verdict comes back as suicide nobody believes this. Psychoanalyst Bradley is called in to look into the situation and discovers that not only has she been murdered but there are other murders also. This is very similar to an Agatha Christie book, with a more eccentric main character and provides many alibis and contradictions to keep you guessing. I did guess who the main killer was before it was revealed (but not the information for one of the other murders), but it does require thinking outside the box slightly. Altogether a good book to listen to on long journeys!
