Wow, wasn't it the most gorgeous day here in the UK yesterday!! We managed to get our three to come out for a walk (with the promise of a pub lunch afterwards!), and we went to the Banstead Blubell woods - fabulous!! Even saw a deer casually stroll across the path in front of us - just like mine in my card today! Hope you're enjoying the Easter break whatever you're up to - just make the most of this glorious early sunshine!!
We're celebrating Spring this week at CES challenges, the theme as chosen by our wonderful Sue on the DT. We want to see a springlike theme to your card or an image that reflects Springtime. Emma is offering a £10 gift voucher as the prize this week ( ex P&P) and she also has a 10% off Easter sale this weekend - so pop on over to the store to grab your 10% and perhaps choose what you'd like if you win!!
I decided to go with watercolouring this week and used a mixture of my distress inks and Aquamarkers to colour my image! Still need to practise watercolouring as it's a little messy but think that may be ok as the whole feel is a bit soft and blurry round the edges with these fabulous Prima Flora papers! Most of the stuff I've used is from Emma's store - the WOJ image, Papers, Daisy Flowers, charm, card candy and Baker's Twine!!
I didn't have the right shade in my stash of seam binding for the ruffled strip that I've used so coloured up a piece of white with my Promarkers! May only buy white from now on as this was so easy!!!
I'm joining in with the Whiff of Joy challenge which has a recipe of 3 buttons, 2 papers and one ribbon. Hope my papers count as two - although they are both from the Prima Flora pad they are two separate designs.
I'm off to spend a day at matey, Lesley's for a day of card making so I'd better get my self dressed and decide what goodies I'm going to take to play with (although Lesley has just about everything I could wish for!!).
Have a wonderful day yourselves.
