Winter Wonderland

A very quick post this morning the sun is shining and I intend to go for a nice long walk with the dog.
We have snow on the hills and a little in some of the surrounding fields so despite the sun it is rather chilly. My digi coloured with Promarkers is from Power Poppy and the sentiment from TLC.


A Country Life

Today's challenge at Cd Sunday chosen by Pamela is "Do What You Love", I found it very difficult to make a choice but in the end chose to use Crafter's Companions A Country Life CD, The first reason is I used a simple layout and secondly I live in the country. Please pop over to the CD Sunday Challenge and see the wonderful inspiration from the Design Team. Remember you only need to use an element from a CD however small as long as you name the CD used.

 Many thanks to those who continue to leave feedback it's lovely to have so much encouragement and lovely comments. We've had several sunny but cold days and the snowdrops are almost in flower with the daffodils well through and growing rapidly, looking forward to seeing the Spring colours.

This digi is from Power Poppy there are beautiful floral digis available as well as some stamps, I teamed the image coloured with Promarkers and Flexmarkers with paper which has been in my stash for a long time.

Challenges  Dicentra because of the heart shape and abundance of blooms

Catch? For a Man or Boy

This week's challenge at Ooh-la-la was chosen by Jane and is" for a man or boy" something we all find a little more difficult than cards for girls. I chose an image from the Boys to Men Cd, it's full of images for every occasion including several fun ones like the one I chose. Hubby never has much luck when fishing although he enjoys it, I'm sure he will see the humour here.
Have a look at today's challenge and the design team cards  lots of inspiration for you.

New Home

Good morning from a wild and windy part of Scotland, I hope the weather is not too bad wherever you are. My card is really Springlike with the tits taking up residence in a new home. We have several exploring our nest boxes at the moment so fingers crossed they nest in them, it's lovely seeing the chicks emerge from the nest.
