I hope you are all well and enjoying this weekend. I apologise for my lack of posting this week - glorious weather and my boys off school meant we were outside doing things and my craft room really didn't see too much of me at all!

Make any "non-traditional" style card (e.g., free standing pop up, joy fold, tri-shutter, etc)
I hope you're able to join in with this weeks challenge over at TMITA/PCC. This image is so versatile - great for Easter, birthday and Spring cards! Thanks for visiting today and as always, comments are so very much appreciated and cherished!
Wishing you all a wonderful week! My boys are on March Break so I don't know how much blogging/crafting I'll get done. If I get into my craft room then I'll consider myself lucky!!

We welcome 4 wonderful and talented ladies to our DT team this week. I would like to introduce Marianne from Marianne's Craftroom Mandy, Kate & Janet. Welcome girls - we are thrilled to have you join us to share your incredible talent!
I decided to go heavy on the distressing with this card and have to say I love the finished result! This is so not normally my style but I'm happy to have achieved this. I used my distress inks and foam blending pad on the image (Vintage Photo, Tattered Rose, Victorian Velvet & Tea Dye). I was pretty heavy-handed with the distressing tool too! I made the flower myself (that's a first!!) and then added some lace underneath it. The gold adhesive pearls are from Prima.

A huge THANK YOU from my wonderful friends who have thought of me to pass this on to. I really hope that in the spirit of the award that not only do I bring sunshine to other people but that it radiates on and outwards to others in blogland too! I just happen to love these Gerbera daisies too! I know it's a very lazy way to do it, but PLEASE, if you haven't received this award yet, take it from me and pass the sunshine on to others!
Also, I wanted to let you all know that PaperWorksCo is having another stamp release party tonight. It starts at 8pm ET and you can be assured of a fun and entertaining time with lots of prizes up for grabs! It would be great to see you there!
I hope you all enjoy a wonderful start to the weekend. My boys are all excited as they've officially started their March Break and can't wait to have a weeks holiday off school! I hope the weather continues this upward trend of warming temps and sunshine!
Take care everyone!

I coloured Edwin and the stone steps with my copics. The papers are from GCD 'Whoop de Doo' line. I paper pierced around the half-circle, added 3 small flowers with 3 buttons on the top and finished off with some chocolate brown adhesive pearls. The white grosgrain ribbon is from stash.

Edited to add this new picture! I found this cute sentiment stamp at Michaels today and thought it would be the perfect fit on this card!
Here's a side view of the card to how the dimension and how easily it goes together. I will also submit this card into the Simon says Stamp challenge this week which is a Mother's Day/Girly card as I've made this card to send back to Jersey for my mum.
Well, thanks for stopping by today - I hope you were able to be inspired! I will definitely be making this style of card again - go try it out - the tutorial is right here! Thanks for your wonderful comments - every single one of them is truly appreciated! Have a fabulous day everyone!

So this is the sketch to play with and I rotated it to use with the image I chose. I coloured my image with copics and used an oval nesties die cut. I found this gorgeous glittery bright pink paper from a DCWV stack. I used the MS zig-zag border punch. Ribbon, gingham ribbon for a bow and a fabulous bright pink crocheted flower (from Christine - thanks hun!!) with pearl brad finish off the details on the card. I will also enter this card into the Cute Card Thursday challenge this week which is 'Ribbon-tastic'.
I have to say I'm so happy with this bright and cheery card - it really makes me smile when I look at it! It's not often I use such bright colours but it's definitely a feel-good card!
Well, that's all for today! I really hope I can get down to my craft room today as I need to play catch up and now that my mojo is co-operating I want to make the most of it, lol!!! Thank you all for stopping by and paying me a visit - your comments are always hugely appreciated! Have a fantastic day!
