The Old Well

Happy St Patrick's Day if you are celebrating! I am going to have a relaxing crafting day today - hurray! I have just put some Five Spice Pork in my slow cooker for tea today and made a tray of Millionaire's Shortbread for Dave so the rest of the day is mine!

I am sharing a card I made with one of Beccy's new images for March:

This gorgeous image and sentiment are part of the "Old Well Set" which is now available in Beccy's store here.  I coloured my image with my Copics and used some Milled Lavender DI around the edges.  The papers are Raspberry Road "Circle of Friends' set.  I cut the sentiment out with my Cheery Lynn Horizon Fishtail Banners and used a Spellbinders die to cut the opening of the card out.

For more inspiration using this beautiful set please visit Beccy's Place Blog.

Challenges I would like to enter:

Bunny Zoe's - Spring Colours
Card Mania - Spring
Cheerful Stamp Pad - In The Garden
Little Claire's - Springtime

Lastly I would like to share a picture of Rowan that my daughter gave me on Mother's Day, its in a frame but I took a picture of it with my I Phone so that is why there is a bit of shine on it:

Thank you so much for calling round to see me today and for the lovely comments that are just wonderful to read, see you soon!

LOVE your card Susan and that image is divine. Clever shape card, I think Beccy has a tutorial on one similar in her blog. Now what is Millionair's shortbread....I know shortbread but ???? [maybe it means he is lucky to have you...]
