Buddy's challenge #5

Good evening, and what a lovely couple of days its been. Well we decided to put our challenge on tonight. I chose the theme of flowers & a sentiment. I must admit I loved this one. So heres my card

I have used a stamp from one of the docrafts henbury lane sets. The wooden embellishment is from Hobbycutz ( love these ), and flowers from the Hobby house. I had to leave it simple as because of my back I cant sit for long and this was made in stages. On the plus side my osteopath is hopeful that it wont take as long to heal this time round. Fingers crossed. Well please pop over to the lovely Marias blog at...
A huge thanks to Maria she has listened to me moan all week about my back and helped me with my walking. 
Hope you like todays make. Thanks for all your lovely comments left on my blog, a big thanks to Judith for following me thats now 42 whoop whoop. Dont forget i will be buying a few things from America to add to my 50 follower giveaway !
