May Flowers

Good morning to you all I hope you have had a fabulous week!  I got all my washing done yesterday, dried on the line and ironed - 5 loads! Is it too risky to say that perhaps Spring is arriving in the UK? Well too bad I have said it lol!

Today sees the start of a new challenge at Wags 'n Whiskers and the theme for this challenge is May Flowers, lets hope we see some!  Here is my card:

Items Used:

Image: Wags 'n Whiskers Fairy Iris available here
Markers: Copics
Papers: My Mind'e Eye The Sweetest Thing, Glitter Cardstock Stash
Dies: Go Kreate XXL Square Frame Frilly No 7, Dienamics Mini Royal Rose (thanks Susan), Tonic Flower Punch
Embellishments: Glamour Dust, Flower Stampin Up, Pearls from stash

The lucky winner will receive a Wags 'n Whiskers Rubber Stamp.  You don't have to use a Wags 'n Whiskers image to enter but if you do you will be also be entered into another draw and the winner of that will win a Wags 'n Whiskers digi!  Please go over to the Challenge and see what the rest of the fabulous team have done! 

Just thought I would share a couple of pictures of Alhambra Palace with you:

I wish I could cut trees as neat as this!

The Lord of the Manor lol!

I will try and share some from Mijas as well but they are on my I Pad so I need to transfer them over!  Hope you all have a great weekend.  I am taking my aunt out for lunch today and then a bite to eat at the pub tonight with DH - another bad day for the diet I think!  Thank you for looking, take care xx

Your card is wonderful Susan, love this beautiful fairy and fine spring colours you've used on your card! It's nice to see the Alhambra again, what a lovely place that is (always has been, first time we visited was way back in 1979). Glad you liked it, too! And I'm afraid spring will have to wait some more, for it has been raining all day long... Hugs, Ira xox
