In The Garden

Has Spring sprung in your neck of the woods? I think at last it maybe has with us!  Two consecutive days of sunshine, no snow and temperatures approaching double figures, almost tropical I'd say!!!

Today sees the start of a new challenge over at MAWTT and this time the theme is

In The Garden

So I used a lovely new Wild Rose Studio stamp for the job.  I say new, but I've had it for well over a year now as I got it Birthday time last year from a fellow blogger - thanks Mrs :) x.

So that's the stamp, the papers are old favourites, The Avenues Collection by Bo Bunny, and colouring as always by Promarker.  And I just want to say, that yet again a much better colour match was achieved by picking the papers then colouring the image!  I so got it wrong when I coloured first then struggled to get papers to match - thanks Sarah, I think that tip came from you!

Anyway, here's my card,

Now over to you...

Passion for Promarkers - Child's Birthday
Dream Valley - Birthdays
Penny Black & More - Feature a Creature
Stamping Sensations - Flower Power
Ribbon Girls - Spring/Anything Goes
Creative Moments - Anything Goes

Finally I'm chuffed to say that the Aberdeen Race For Life date has at last been announced and participants can now register, so I'm rallying the troops and hope to be reporting back to you that we have a team registered...hopefully!

No idea how I missed this one Janice, just checked it it didn't come up on my dashboard, this seems to be happening more and more on several blogs.

Love the prettily colours image which is so sweet and soft earthy colours.
