It's the middle of the week - just gotta get over the hump!

Morning readers,

How's your week coming along? Did you enjoy an extra day off for the Bank Holiday or has it sent your week awry because today FEELS like Tuesday?

I think this has the look of a cityscape with reflections in water and hills in the background and I love the purple tones. A fabulous card Kathy. x

Great card, Kathy. Love the splats combined with the computer music stamp. Always love the way you do the envelopes as well. Keep meaning to do this, but never get the card done in time, let alone the envelope 🙂

Beautiful card, Kathy. Love the way you have combined the stamps. Looks like a really cool, abstract cityscape. Great to see you in our gallery and hope you will join us again soon! Please do visit my blog Paint Paper Scissors for more inspiration.
