letterbox

well another day another challenge , ~showing my card using the sketch from "spoonfull of sugar" (however i left the square out behind the oval , as felt it was too much ), used "letter box" sugar nellie stamp, paper from my stash, nestabilities oval, american crafts ribbon, see d`s stamp and some glitter.
this is for my aunt in america, so tried to keep the card free of gems/brads , so it will not get caught up in any mail sorting machinery!!
yesterday i enjoyed a chat /and a chatch~up with an old friend (not that we are old, just known each other a few years, mmmmmm about 15 i guess), who popped round to say hi and stayed 3 hours.
it was very hot here last night , just couldn`t sleep and kept me coughing ~ don`t really like muggy weather!!~more of an autumn person me!!
what ever you are doing enjoy your day, byeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee xx

oooooooh got rid of my name oooooooooops!!
