Here's Another

Good morning everyone.  It sure is cold here such a bitter wind although its lovely and sunny!  I'd like to say a big welcome to my latest follower Nikki!  Well I seem to be on a theme of thank you cards at the moment so here's another one:


The image is a digi by Stitchy Bear called Darling Daisies and I have coloured it with my Prisma Pencils although I must admit I don't really like how it turned out. I love the paper its a digi from The Paper Shelter so I actually got the image because I thought it matched the paper well.  I have used my Joy Craft die for the daisies with some Card Candi in the centre which I coloured with my Copics.  The tag and hummingbird are Cheery Lynn dies.  The ribbons is from my stash.

I would like to enter the following challenges:


Crafty Boots - Old, New, Borrowed or Blue (Old Ribbon, New Image and Paper, Blue Colour)
Incy Wincy Designs - Things that begin with F (Flowers)
Addicted to Stamps - Bring on Spring (lots of Flowers)
One Stitch at a Time - Anything Goes
Stamptacular Sunday - To Die For
The Hybrid Chick - Fur or Feather

My son and DIL and two scrummy grandsons are coming for a week at Easter!  I am trying to get all prepared so I don't have to spend too much time in the kitchen by freezing things beforehand.  Last week I made a big batch of bolognaise sauce and today I am going to make a tagine and lemon  roulade although I think I need to get a move on as there is only just over two weeks to go!! I am so excited to have my little bundles of gorgessness up here for a week!

Thank you so much for looking, see you tomorrow and take care xx
