Happy Sunday Everyone

Hope you are all having a relaxing and crafty weekend. After the mega re-organization here last weekend it has been nice to actually sit and have a play :o) I am busily trying to complete Mother's Day cards not only for my own mum and mum-in-law  also some extra's for people at work to have a look at and hopefully like enough to buy (fingers crossed).
The card below I made a couple of weeks ago but hadn't got round to scanning and posting.
The image is from Whimsy Stamps (Wee Suzi), which I haven't owned for very long and this is in fact the first time I had inked her up, I have to say she is a joy to colour (I do love colouring) I have coloured her with ProMarkers, inked the card edges slightly to soften them and then matted her onto Kraft card. The tag is more Kraft card which I cut out by hand, inked the edges and then stamped a flower design onto it, the flower stamp is a large Penny Black which I have had for years. Punched a little hole at the top and threaded some baker's twine through. The background papers is from Nitwit Collections I love their range of digital papers and am slowly adding to my collection (the joy of digital papers is of course they take no room to store and you never run out), the paper I have again softened at the edges ans layered onto some Kraft card added some cream lace from The Ribbon Girl as is the bakers twine used on the tag and there you have it card complete. This card came together like a dream, I do wish that would happen more often as I do tend to struggle with putting my paper and card colour pallets together.

I am entering this card into the following challenges:

The Cuttlebug Spot - Spring is in the Air
Crafts And Me Challenges - Challenge 73 - Pretty In Lace
PaperPlay Challenges: '12 - Week 9 - Something Old, Something New (new stamp 'Wee Suzy', old stamp 'Penny Black')
Paper Crafting Journey - PCJ Challenge 4 - Anything Goes!
Sweet Stampin' - Nature, Bugs & Bees

I have a bit of an addiction to this colour combo. at the moment so don't be surprised if you see a lot more of these appearing here lol. Have a great Sunday everyone and enjoy whatever it is you have planned for the day.
