You're a Peach!


Hello!

Thanks for popping in today for a visit - it's great to see you here!  And I apologise for the lack of postings this week ... I'm single parenting my 3 boys quite a bit at the moment as my husband is away on business a lot and it leaves little 'spare time'!!  Things should settle down soon, so please bear with me!

It is Family Day here today so I took advantage of a day at home with everyone present & correct (LOL) and snuck into my craft room for a little bit.  We had a stunning day here on Friday where the temperature escalated to +12oc ... oh, it was like Spring!  It didn't take winter long to come back and visit us but I felt inspired to create something that was full of the joys of spring - maybe it will hurry it along a bit!

So, I used the gorgeous Tilda with peaches.  I have totally gone out of my comfort zone and used colours that I'm not particularly comfortable with .. but am really happy to say I like the end result.  Papers are MME Bloom & Grow and I used copics to colour.  The sentiment is SU!.

I'm also going to enter this card into the following challenges:-

Just Magnolia - Love You (I used a sentiment - Sending You my Love)
Truly Scrumptious - Swirls & Pearls
Charisma Cardz - Spring has Sprung
Totally Gorjuss - 'Check' it Out

Thanks again for coming by - I really do appreciate your visits very much and love to read the comments that are left for me.  The truly brighten my day!

Take care everyone!

Hugs,
Danielle x
