Don't worry........ be happy!

Hi Ladies

Hope you're having a lovely weekend...  we went for a walk this morning in lovely sunshine..  we walked past the local cricket ground, the local pub (no, we didn't go in!)... then by the church.  We had a Red Kite above us circling looking for a tasty morsel.. (I wasn't it!)    We saw so many beautiful snowdrops, some crocuses trying to peep out, trees beginning to blossom (yes already)...  and lot of things in bud...  it doesn't seem quite right does it?  After all, it's only February - and we could still have deep snow before Spring!

Right... the reason I'm here... my card!  I used one of the new Tiddlyinks images... this one is Ellie Says Be Happy and is available HERE.

Materials Used:
Image: Tiddlyinks Ellie Says Be Happy
Colouring: Copics
Paper: Pink Petticoat Tiny Hearts
Dies: Nesties Stately Circles, MFT Dienamics Pierced Circle Stax, MFT Triple Flower, Li'l Inkers Stitched Scallop Border Die
Pebbles Inc Rub On
Glitter, Twine and Gems from Stash

This is a 'just because I felt like it' - the type I enjoy making!  I'm also trying to improve my colouring technique...  something I'm also enjoying!!

Hope you enjoy the rest of your day..
Big hugs

Just gorgeous Christine - such a fabulous sweet image and beautiful colouring.
We had a lovely walk along the canal here this morning - it was glorious - hope it continues for a few more days at least as it's half term.
Enjoy your evening.

That sounds like a really lovely day and it is so nice to see the spring flowers but yes, I hope they don't all get buried in snow!
Wow to the purple card - such rich tones and fab design - you know how I love little fishtail banners so am loving that detail!
I love having time to practice my colouring and you have got some pretty pleats on the dress and lovely shiny highlights in her hair :-)
Big hugs, Kat xx
