Spring Has Sprung

Hi Crafters,

A very dismal and dreary day here in Norfolk and after the sunny weekend I'm so ready for some regular sunshine and warmer days now.
So I thought I'd share one of my recent projects which shouts Springtime!



Both the watering can and daffodils are a Silhouette Cameo cut file
and I thought this would make a nice Easter display on my stall when selling my Easter cards.


Just a little Distress Ink in Spiced Marmalade & Wild Honey to define the petals was all that was needed. I popped the daffodil heads on to plastic stirrers for stems so to cover the round, flat tops I added a Stampin' Up flower punch in green card for the sepal.

Challenges I'd like to enter:
Allsorts Challenge - #455 Handmade Flowers


Thanks for joining me today and see you again tomorrow for my DT post for the new challenge at Passion For Promarkers.

Christmas Card Club Challenge #3 - Angels or Fairies

Hi Crafters,

Today is a new challenge at our fun Christmas Card Club where we try and make Christmas cards all year round in order to alleviate some of the last minute panic nearer to Christmas.
Well today it was GranMargaret's turn to choose a theme and so we have ...

ANGELS or FAIRIES

This proved rather tricky for me as I don't seem to have any dies that fit the bill or many images either and although we can opt for the Anything Goes option this year I wanted to try and follow the theme.
I then found a Mo Manning digital image of this cute little angel called Rafe that I had in a file which I'd never coloured up before and so here he is...twice!
I flipped the image in my design program and made it a little smaller for perspective.


Recipe
Image - Rafe - Mo's Digital Pencil
Coloured with Promarkers
Paper - Craft Sensations 'Traditional Christmas'
Tattered Lace Pearl Rectangle Die
Craft Essentials Sentiment Die
Embossed Holly Berry Card stock
Wink of Stella pen on their wings

Challenges I'd like to enter:
I Love Promarkers - #351 Embossing
Fab n Funky - #379 Christmas
Cute Card Thursday - #515 ATG
CHNC Every Saturday - #371 ATG / Quick & Easy
Crafty Calendar Challenge - 2 or More Layers

I hope you are all keeping well so far this year, there have been so many bugs around and I'm afraid I seem to have caught a couple of them recently so that is why I haven't been around much. Hopefully I am on the mend now and robust enough to fight anything else off, I'm quite fed up with feeling run down now.

Well I will be back with my Passion For Promarkers card on Tuesday so I will try and visit you all before then.

Take care,

Lorraine
