It's Friday everyone so I hope there is plenty of restful crafting ahead! I have a jumper which still needs finishing, everytime I see the bag I somehow edge a little closer to my craft table...does it sound like I'm avoiding picking up my knitting needles.....mmm...maybe, but it will have to be made up as promised before the gardening season starts as I do like to rummage around the garden with pots and plants. So with my card..does she look like there's been a proposal by this lovely lady and the handsome chap has at last said 'yes', well you know it's a leap year and the woman gets to ask the man for a hand in marriage!!! To me it doesn't make sense but chappies be aware 'you can't stall the big day forever'. Digi image is from the Ladybug Craft Ink, gorgeous drawings and I will slowly make my way round to using each one in the fab set (they're having a blog hop too), I've created a background around the images, used a tree stamp (free with a mag) and doodled my own fence, coloured with Promarkers, digi papers from Polka Doodle and Kaboodle Doodle old papers, kraft is from the wrapping of a present, found an epoxy heart, sentiment from Paper Pretties set, 3 charms on a piece of ribbon..key and horse shoe from Crafty Emma's, heart part of an old candy! Placed some lace which I frilled first..I've seen this done on many cards, thought I'd have a go too.


There's 10 challenges..Colour Create 'lilac, blue, white, kraft', Charisma 'love is in the air', Ladybug crafts 'spring in the air', followed the CRAFT sketch, Crafty Calendar 'love & marriage', Papertake Weekly 'kraft', Little darlings 'pearls', MAWTT 'lots of layers', Simon Says '3 different papers', One Stop Craft 'create own background'. That's it for now, have a great weekend all!
