creative inspirations challenge # 10 ( brown and blue)

my poor kids had their french exam today and blimey was it hard!!!!!! if they say that gcse's have got easier this year they are very, very wrong, lets hope that they all did well. i love and hate this time of year at school all the yr 11's that i have been with since they came up to senior school leave and i really miss them. most keep in touch though so i will know what they are getting up to. (not always a good thing). my first card tonight (and it might be my only one) is for the challenge on the creative inspirations blog and the theme this week is brown and blue, i really like this colour combo. the stamp is from sugar nellie and she is called 'pen pal', the papers are from basic grey, the flowers, and ribbon are from my stash. the ticket stamp is from an autumn leaves set called 'ticketed' from the hobby house. i hope the weather brightens up i would love another bbq this weekend. x
