Keeping it minimal...

...it's all I have time for again. Having said that I love minimilist cards anyway, so it is just as well.

apron 4 new

The beautiful stamp is by Stampington called "Apron". Just simply stamped and Glamour Dusted to within an inch of it's life! And I've just discovered that if you click on the picture, and then click on the picture again, the picture is magnified (well this works with my mouse) and you can get a really good close up of the photo...it looks soo much better up close!

My mojo is lacking at moment, mainly due to a combination of being busy at work and the oppressive heat...I am tired...I haven't been able to sleep most of the week because it has been so stifling at night. I know I shouldn't complain and wish the summer away, but I've had enough now and am longing for the cool air of autumn!

Can't leave without showing this picture...taken in of all places...IKEA!! Yep, I am now famous LOL!

Honestly, my name isn't even Swedish, it's Indian, but hey fame is fame right?!

Beautiful as always Sarita. Hopefully it will cool down abit next week. Whatever happened to ` warm`? It`s either freezing or boiling here just lately. Nice to see your fame, I`m sure you`re worth more than £5.99 though Lol.
