Green Views ......

...... I often wondered, seeing summer foliage unfurled,
why it was that God chose green in which to dress the world. 
I tried to picture to myself a background pink or gold,
and wondered if a dell of blue would thrill me to behold.

And, thinking thus, I knew that nothing could be so serene,
so calm, so fresh, so restful as the myriad tones of green. 
No other colour could appear so fragrant and so sweet,
so cool and so refreshing in the summer's sultry heat. 
So soothing in the evening when a spirit needs release. 
And in a world of turmoil so completely swathed with peace.

July Promotion

Hello again - my apologies for the absence, I am clearly 'pants' at blogging although here I am again having another go - so the best thing for me to do is share the July promo from Stampin' Up!

For a qualifying spend of £45.00 you can receive yummy brads and gorgeous organza ribbon in Limeade and Coral - and there's more - if you missed out, or have now run out, of the beautiful Saleabration designer papers then hurry, because there is limited stock to purchase at £9.95 per pack - so you can enjoy fab co-ordination, just what we Stamp-a-uppers love about Stampin' Up's products!!

I loved this set from our Saleabration Promotion this year so these have definitely got my name on them.
