Good morning my lovelies. It's a Bank holiday today and in true bank holiday style it's cold and miserable so my plans of having all my washing outside have gone by the wayside.
Anyway, I'm just popping in to share a card I've just managed to finish. Whilst I was having a rummage around my stamp draws I came across a bunch of Sarah Kay stamps I haven't used in absolutely ages so picked one of my favourites to ink up. Decided I'd do a different style card instead of my usual 6 x 6 so plumped for a front step card. I've also seen a challenge somewhere to make your own flowers so I'd seen a while back on a blog how to make these gorgeous flowers so had a go too. Now can't remember for the life of me what challenge it was so will have to hunt for that one out but I can remember the flowers were on Norma's fab blog here. She has loads of inspiration on there so you should check it out. So let me show you what how it turned out.

My last photo shows the image close up and coloured with my copics. It's actually a real easy image to colour so I don't know why I don't use them more often as they really are very sweet.

Okay that's all from me today. Got to go lovely food shopping now what a thing to have to do on a bank holiday but I suppose if I want the kiddies to have stuff for their lunch boxes next week best get my behind in gear. Then I assure you I'm coming home and sneaking in some colouring!
