Mid-way at ALBC

Good morning hope you are having a good week. We are enjoying lovely sunshine here and doesn't it make you feel good?

I am a day late with my mid-way reminder for the challenge at A Little Bit Crafty where the theme this month is The Birds and The Bees.  Here is my card:

I used a little stamp I got from Little Claire at the NEC and stamped it twice.  Lightly coloured with Copics and chalk.  The papers are Nitwits Petal Fresh and Papermill cardstock.  I used Lil Inker Stitched Pennant die and Dienamics Fishtail Stax for the sentiment.  The flower is Dienamics Plentiful Petals and Memory Box Fresh Foilage for the leaves.  The little scalloped border is also Dienamics.  Here is a side view:

We have three fab sponsors and three wonderful prizes this month, for further details go over to A Little Bit Craft Blog and have a look.

That's it for me today - short and sweet. I am going over to Bolton today to get some cuddles from my newest grandson! Hope you have a wonderful day whatever you are up to and a big thank you for coming around to see me! Take care xx
