Designed to colour challenge card..



Morning Peeps!
I have woken up to another yummy sunny day and I can't wait for the weekend!! roll on 5:30pm tonight when I finish work for the weekend!! 


My little card today is one that I have been playing with this week. I wanted to join in with the first challenge over on the Designed to colour blog but have had so much to do this month, then I saw the Passion for promarkers -Birthday challenge and the I love promarkers-Use die cuts challenge so I decided to do a 3 in 1 card to fit all 3 challenges!!! 
I stamped my stamp,its a Sarah Kay one and then nestied her out with my oval nesties, then I nestied the next size down on my card base and then using the papers  'Crab Apple too' from nitwits, I nestied the larger size again for my card papers. I love how that little bit of die cutting made such a lovely scene through the window!!...hard to photgraph it though!!!


I made the flowers with my little 1" scalloped circle punch, they are really teeny but so super cute, you can just about see the liquid pearls in the centres. I also added a few punched butterflies and leafy fronds to my swirly branches.
This card is really sweet because when you open it you see all of her.


Here is my little pile of pens.....


....yeah OK,  so the pile is not as little as I thought!!! romfl!!! but I have to say those 4 little flexmarkers (...which is the only 4 I have so far.....) are just awesome, I love them so I will be popping some more colours on my wish list I think.


I think thats me done for today. Tonight Scott is taking Ryan to his football/soccer presentation evening so my friend Hayley is coming and we are going to have a scrap page night. I have found a nice little sketch for us to follow so it should be fun. I have a tonne more cards to get made too and wooohoooooo!! its the sincerely yours show in Lincoln on sunday. I am going with my mum and my big sister...who has new digi's out that are sooooo cute....they are here if you fancy peekyage . I have a pile of them printed out and ready for playing with this weekend as Scott and Mo are heading off to the driving range in the morning and then home in time for a christening in the afternoon,phew its all go!!!!
Thank you for popping in on me.
Huge hugs Lou xxxx
