It's May!

Woohoo!  That must mean Summer is just around the corner, eh? LOL!!!  I've never known it so bloomin' cold, wet and windy!  Floods everywhere, and us in the middle of a drought!  Yeah!

Well, I've been at it again - Macaron making!  Pistachio this time:

These one's were filled with pistachio cream and were every bit as delish as the Vanilla one's I made at the weekend!  Mmmm...!!

Here is my card for this week's Midweek Magnolias theme which is May Flowers:
This is my first Criss Cross card - and probably my last!  Too much faffing about with angles for me - I like things kept nice and simple and this just seemed to go on and on and on!  I am however, really pleased with the finished result.  I love Tilda's little bug costume, so as there were lots of flowers this week, I decided to make it a Bee (although it probably looks a little more wasp'ish!!!).

Here's the inside:
Papers are all Websters digi papers and the images were coloured with Copics.  The pull-out card is machine stitched, and there is lace on the crossover, so I am going to enter it into the Totally Tilda and Papertake Weekly Challenges too!

Thank you so much for stopping by, and if you have a moment or two to spare, please give my lovely teamies at Midweek Magnolias a visit too - they've all worked soooo hard to come up with their amazing inspiring samples to motivate you!  Give 'em a little of your love, they'll really appreciate it! 

Have a great week! :o) xx
