The image I used was from a free sheet in "Making Cards" I coloured with Copics,  the backing paper is from my stash and I used a Martha Stewart punch on plain card for the edges and added a sentiment.

Ooh La La

Good Morning,

Sorry not been around much this week but with all the nice weather and the granddaughters on school holidays we have been out most days enjoying the sunshine, they are back to school on Monday so back to normal next week.

We have a new challenge for you starting today on My Time to Craft where this week we have a sketch for you.

For my card I used a Kanban topper that I have had for ages, the paper is Lili of the Valley, I added some pearls and  the sentiments came with the topper.

Easter Greetings

Good Morning,

Pouring down with rain this morning, looks like a day for crafting, but it's the last weekend of March and the clocks go forward tonight so I am looking forward to some lighter evenings next week, I can put up with the cold and wet of winter but I hate the short days.

Now as Easter will be upon us next week our challenge at My Time to Craft is:

Easter Animals

I won a challenge at Sparkle n Sprinkle recently and chose this gorgeous image by Rosiland Solomon for my prize and coloured with Copics, the paper is by First Edition, the sentiment courtesy of Desert Diva, I added a ribbon, frantage  and used a border punch.

There are some great cards on the challenge blog by the Design Team so why not pop over and take a look and enter our challenge.
