Morning all, hope you're having a nice weekend so far. The weather has been just awful here, …cold, wet and miserable although it does look a bit brighter this morning.

Thanks for all you lovely comments about errant teens, it’s nice to know I’m not the only one living with Kevin the Teenager!




Time for the May colour challenge at The Ribbon Girl, and you need to use lavender or lilac on your cards for this one

The design team have outdone themselves with some fabulous colour samples for you so be sure to pop over and have a look even if you’re not joining in


There are prizes as always, and this week you’ll have chance to win The Ribbon Girl and Lili of the Valley vouchers









There’s a gorgeous inspiration photo for you, I just love these colours …








I used one of the pictures from the new Lili of the Valley art pads, they are so great for a quick card. I do love colouring but don’t always have the time

This image is Peekaboo from the Jack, Patch and Puss pad, the image is also available as a stamp

Spellbinders curved borders one

Magnolia heart tag

Noor design leaves

Core’dinations card

I printed the greeting on the computer and the little heart tag can be either taken off or tucked behind the image


Hope you like it, enjoy the rest of your Sunday x
