Face the Sunshine

Good morning and Happy Friday! Have you got any plans for the weekend? With it being Mother's Day on Sunday here in the U.K. we are going over to my daughter and partner's house for a meal tomorrow night and staying the night!  Other than that a quiet weekend, I am trying to get as far ahead with DT work as I can.

Here is my card for today which I have made for Unity's Friends with Flair Friday following the sketch over at Sketch Saturday.


I have used the gorgeous Face the Sunshine by Phyllis Harris from Unity, it comes with two sentiments and I have used one inside but not taken a picture! The inside is the same as the front so you will have to take my word for it lol.  I have coloured her with my Copics and chalked the sky.  The papers are digital Echo Park Sweet Day and Coredinations card stock.  I have used Spellbinders Grand Nesties Ovals to cut the image and she is matted on Spellbinders Floral Ovals.  The corner die is Cuttlebug, the felt flower is a Marianne die as is the Topiary tree.

I would like to enter the following challenges:

Unity - Friends with Flair
Sketch Saturday - Sketch
Dutch Dare Card Challenge - Girls Rule
Loves Rubberstamps - Anything Goes
Papertake Weekly - Anything Goes
Party Time Tuesday - Die Cuts

Well off to the gym soon then the hairdressers so that's my morning gone.  We will be going to the pub for our tea tonight - yippee wine time is looming!! Whatever you are doing I hope you have a fab day.  Thank you so much for coming by to see me, see you tomorrow and take care xx
