Cartful of Sunshine…

 

 

Hello my lovelies, can you believe another week has flown by, I don’t know where the time goes!

We have actually seen the sun quite a lot this week and had some really nice days so it feels like Spring is around the corner at long last. I hope my neck is better soon because I can’t wait to get in my garden and and start tidying up. I’m still going to the chiropractor and put myself back a bit last week by pegging some washing out, it wasn’t a good idea and my neck didn’t like it at all!

There's a new challenge on the Lili of the Valley Facebook page and for March the theme is flowers. There are 3 prizes and the winners will be drawn at random

All the details are on the challenge page and entries close on the 15th

I’m getting ahead and started making cards for Mother’s Day. February and March are busy for me as all our family birthdays are bunched together. With Valentines, Mother’s day and Easter I always seem to end up running out of time and buying cards so I’ve tried to be organised this year!

 

Cart full of sunshine

 

This is one of the new images from Lili of the Valley and I think it’s my favourite! It’s called Cartful of Sunshine, this is the Simply Print sheet but it’s also available in rubber and as a digi image

I’m having a bit of a phase using clouds and sunshine dies, I love how they create a little scene. I printed Grandma and then cut it with the cloud die. The tag die is Spellbinders and I used a Tonic pin prick circle around the image. I have these in squares and circles and it’s the first time I’ve used them but I think they will be useful for creating an accent without actually cutting

Hope you like it…

thanks for stopping by and have a fantastic weekend everyone

  4. Gorgeous card Anne and love the adorable image. Beautiful design too. Sorry to hear you have a back problem. My husband had back issues for years, so I know the pain you are in. An operation was his cure and he has had no back pain since. So hope you are pain free soon. Hugs, Carol S.xx
