Spring At Last!

The sun is shining and I really think Spring has finally sprung!

It's a while since I have been able to indulge my hobby but yesterday I was able to find some me time :)
This card  is for a friend who has been there for me.
I am entering this card in the StampTV challenge this week ; the theme being threes. I used flowers and sentiment from Gina K Design sets Dogwood and Butterfly and Hello Sunshine. I fussy cut the flowers and added some buttons. The papers are from Pink Petticoat.

Short and sweet today; hope you are having a good day,

If all else fails - eat chocolate

Name Day Card

This week it is one of my Granddaughter's Name Day so have decided to use my Copics for this one.  Copics are such a fun medium to work with - I love them!

I down loaded the image, Donna,  from Tiddly Inks - She is so cute! However I'm not keen on images without proper faces so I deleted the eyes on Photoshop and added a face myself with a Sakura Pigma Archival Ink.  The umbrella was paper pieced using a co-ordinating colour to the background paper - both from Pink Petticoat.  The flowers I fussy cut after stamping the flower from Bloomin' Marvellous - SU with Distress Inks. The bg paper was scored diagonally and edged with the border - Finishing Touches from SU.  Blue pearls, silver Stickles and white baker's twine give the finishing touches.

I have entered this card in this weeks Colour Challenge ( red, yellow and Blue ) at SCS,  at The Ribbon Carousel, at Joanna Sheen at A Little Bit Crafty and at Crafting for all Seasons

I hope you have enjoyed my fun card today and thanks for coming by.
