Find joy in everyday!

I did promise you yesterday that I would post my favourite card from last weekend.  I know I shouldn't have favourites but I do.

For this card I have used Distress inks Stormy sky,  Broken china, Peeled paint and Pine needles together with stamps from PI Marion Emberson sets "Find joy in everyday", "On your Special day" and "Create a tree".  I masked a Spellbinder circle to create the sun and also used a Spellbinder Ribbon tag to add the sentiment.  The ribbon is white seam binding which has also been coloured using my distress inks.
Once I'd created the picture I then cut it into four parts and re-assembled on a black background.
As Alexander would say "simples" squeak!

I have a wee man to myself this weekend as my husband is working and my eldest is busy so I am away to have some quality time.  Let's hope he fancies a bit of crafting at some point!  Mind you I think haircuts might be in order first.  He keeps saying to me "mom you're always crafting!" 
Mmmm I'm not an X box expert or into gaming gadgets, give me paper any day of the week "thank you!"
