Dream, Cherish..

Happy Bank Holiday!
Did that sound a bit american?
Well I only realised yesterday that it was a holiday weekend,lucky I have my workshop gang to keep me in touch with reality isnt it.
So I thought I would have a little chill out this morning before I start work, and its a good opportunity to write a couple of blog posts.
I doubt today's card needs much introduction, this Clarity classroom set of stamps has got to be my fave yet (you should see whats coming next month though,it may become your most used stamps, cant say anymore but they will be previewed this weekend on the Classroom show)
Anyway, here is today's offering

The leaves and Bird were coloured with Sakura stardust pens.
I thought I would enter this into a couple of challenges, not had time for ages!
