The Wonder of the Season ...

Good Morning!
I hope you are all enjoying the bank holiday weekend here in the UK! 
I don't usually get to do so myself due to working in retail but today is actually the start of my fortnight off from work ... woohoo! It's been a long time coming I can tell you! 
My plan of action for my time off is to spend time in both the craft room and garden as they've both been unfortunately neglected over the past few months due to work or feeling unwell. 
Fingers crossed this goes to plan and I have more than one thing per week to share with you all!

Well this morning I did manage to have an hour in the craft room playing with one of my new stamps. Today's card isn't my usual style but it was a good opportunity to dig out those Distress inks! I hope you all like it. I think it's versatile enough to be used as an all year round card and not just for winter.
You may notice that the card was still a little bit warped from the water droplets when I took the photograph lol
