Sweet Melinda

Hi everyone, i've been doing a spot of sunbathing today, fell asleep on the garden lounger then woke up and it had gone a bit cool and the sun had disappeared behind the clouds. I've managed to get a nice tan though working in the garden over the past week.
I don't have a card to share but an altered item. I bought this sweetie jar and contents at the weekend and thought wouldn't it look lovely with a stamped image and some flowers and gingham!! The gorgeous stamp was a gift from my lovely friend Shelby and i've coloured her with Promarkers, thank you so much Shelby!!
