Flowers and leaves card

Hi everyone, it's 'scorchio'( 27c still at 6pm) here again today
 yippee!!!
 
 Almost a disaster today, a car came out of a side road 
 and almost hit us side on. It stopped midway in our road in 
front of us.When we looked inside there was no driver !
 
 
 It had rolled down a slope into our path on a busyish road. We
 stopped the traffic and OH knocked on the door of a shop it was
 parked outside of. The driver came out swearing and no sign of
 a thankyou either.No damage to it luckily.
 
Anyway enough rambling !  Here is a quick post to show you 
a card I made for the 'LIM'  challenge this week. Details below........
 
 
ps. Our lovely new conservatory windows are in at last.We  just
 have to fix the guttering back etc. and do the inside shelf.
 Really pleased with them though.Now we have to replace one
 of the back conservatory ones and  a patio door.OH built them
 both front and back of our bungalow to conserve heat. Works
 like a dream too :).........not that we need it in this heat lol !

  8. What a gorgeous, shaped card, so beautiful :o)
    It's a shame there were no police about to witness a runaway car. The owner would have probably been booked!

  9. Fabulous card, love the flowers and the sentiment.

    As for the car, when will people learn to put their car in gear when parked to stop what could be dreadful consequences.

  14. Your card is gorgeous Viv, I love how you have shaped the side where the flowers are. You did an amazing job colour them too, they are so soft and pretty.
    I'm glad to hear you and hubby were okay after the car incident! It sure sounded scary and could have been so much worse if you hadn't been paying attention!
    Cheers,
    Beccy
