Flowers for you

Good morning everyone!  Well yesterday was so fantastic how wonderful to see the sunshine again I had almost forgotten what it felt like.  I had such a productive day too, got all the housework done, all the washing and ironing, shopping, went to the garden centre and got all my bedding plants for my pots and tubs and planted them and still made a card! Looks like we are in for more of the same today as I am looking out at a lovely blue sky now at 0620.

For today's card I have used another image by Tickled Pink:

It was so nice I decided to photograph it outside! I have coloured her with my Copics and added some Stickles which you can't really see in this picture so here is another picture:

I think you can see the Stickles a bit better in this one.  The papers are by Papermania called Lucy Cromwell (?) which is a really pretty stack and it has these labels to match.  The photo corners and butterfly are by Dienamics and the border punch is a Martha Stewart. The resin flower is from Teresa's My Crafty Heart Shop and they are available in all different lovely colours and styles. Pearls and ribbon from my stash.  I would like to enter the following challenges:

Hooked on Crafts - Flowers
Bearly Mine - Anything Goes
Flourishes - Flower Image
Sassy Cheryl's - Favourite Colour Combo (Easy Peasy = Pink Pink and Pink lol!!)
Sweet Stamps - Anything Goes
That Craft Place - Monochromatic
The Crafty Pad - Bingo (Ribbons, Flowers and Bling)

Well I think I may even do some colouring outside today and a spot of gardening and try and catch up on some DT work.  Its amazing how only a few days away and you have a lot of catching up to do. Thanks for looking and any comments you may leave which are always lovely to read.  See you tomorrow and take care xx

I cannot get over everything you got done yesterday. I think I am going to faint! Susan how in the world do you do it???? What news yesterday - what did I miss. Now I have to go back and read again. I think I must have passes out with exhaustion when I read what you did yesterday. Very pretty card and now I must go back and see what I missed!
