Happy Monday! Wow, beautiful sunshine coming through my lounge as I type..hope everyone has had a restful weekend with family and loved ones, mine just flew by with a mini spring clean but only one room got done ;( and this card and bookmark was all ready to post on here but just couldn't get a moment free to myself. I've used the Simply Sassy SN image 'bookclub' by Krista, great to colour, this will go for a Post Pals child trying to get back into school after suffering many obstacles, hope she will like it!

I used some kraft-like card from my grocers, great sturdy card..some offcuts of paper, inexpensive doily, stamped sentiment and swirls in walnut stain ink, coloured with Promarkers, finished with CC Designs Phlox die flowers from My Mums Craft Shop.


Several challenges entered.. firstly, Sugar Bowl followed the sketch and I hope the option, Saturated Canary 'doilies', Paper Sundaes 'good luck' as is Inky Impressions, Crafts & Me 'pretty in lace', Cute Card Thursday 'signs of spring', Crafty Catz 'punch/dies', new one to me Clearly I Stamp' anything goes' as are Simon Says 2nd, Pixie Cottage, Craft Your Passion, Party Time Tuesdays 2nd, Bunny Zoes Monthly 'shabby chic'. So, I'm hoping to have a little potter around the garden, see what further damage the slugs have done to my hubbys yellow crocuses and looking forward to the daffodils coming out any day soon! Have a great day all.
