Showers and flowers!

Good morning blogworld,

Monday morning is upon us again - so it's time for a new challenge over at The Cutie Pies and, for this challenge, the theme is April showers bring May flowers. So really the choice is yours - it's either go for something rain related or flower related - or, if you are feeling brave, both!

But what you really must remember is that there has to be some element of cuteness to your entry - cute being something (whether it's stamped, decoupaged, a pre-printed image or sticker - whatever it is that you use in your crafting) that makes you go 'ahhhh'.

You should pop on over to the challenge, there are heaps of 'awww' and 'ahhhh' from my Teamies there ;-)

We've definitely been having the showers here in rural Lincolnshire - and it may not be bringing the flowers but the weeds have grown quite a bit!  I can see hubby being busy in the garden very soon!

We have a fab sponsor this time in Crafty Ribbons, who is offering a £10 voucher for the lucky winner.

I wasn't sure whether to go with flowers or showers - so I went with both!  Though admittedly more showers than flowers, and another very simple card.  It's made with scraps that I had on my desk from a previous project.

And, without further ado, here is me card:

I used:

All Dressed Up - A Time to Share
coloured with my Copics
Stamped ribbon along the bottom is a very old stamp that doesn't have who it's by on it.

Memory Box - cloud

K&Co - Bailey

Anything else?
Stickles glitter glue
Prima flower
pearls from my stuff

And that's about it folks.  I'm hoping that, as this week is a proper full week back at school for SWMbO, I can get some semblance of order back in my life and get back to commenting on all your lovely blogs.  It would also be good if I could get back to my exercise class - two weeks without and I'm putting weight back on - blehh!!

See you soon,
