A big welcome to all of my lovely followers and visitors to my little space in the crafting world of blogland! I love colouring, drool over every embellishment and love to 'look' at papers (never mind using them) - some are just TOO good to use lol. I hope you enjoy your little wander through my creative world and would love to feel that I may have inspired some of you in some small way. Happy Crafting to you all and I hope you will stop by again soon!

Flowers in the Avenue

Good Morning to you all and a very Happy Easter to each and every one of you!  Whichever way you celebrate this day, I hope it's as wonderful as can be .......  I have to say, the most first and foremost thing on my little boy's mind when he wakes will be his adventurous egg hunt :)  He has been beside himself with excitement and even left a carrot out for the Easter Bunny!! So, it seems, carrots are not only good for us humans and that there Rudolph .... they are also very good for Easter Bunny too lol.

On to my first post of today now .....

We have a brand new challenge over at 613 Avenue Create and the theme this week is
Anything Goes with the optional twist of Flowers 

Our fabulous sponsors for this week are Bugaboo Stamps and Meljens Designs

My card this week features the beautiful If Friends were Flowers from Bugaboo.

I decided, for a change, to do a stepper card this week.  The fabulous papers are the gorgeous Maja Design Vintage Spring collection from Live and Love Crafts and, if you're quick, there's a fab Easter sale on until Monday midnight GMT.

I coloured these beautiful flowers with Copics and wanted to make them as vibrant as I possibly could - seeing as we are definitely lacking in the flower department in chilly old England at the mo!  I used my woodware self adhesive lace as a bottom edging.

For the left hand section of the card I made up a little miniature bouquet with some cellophane wrap, twine and shabby seam binding.

I hope you like my little card today and I'd love for you to pop on over and take a look at the awesome creations of my teamies on the Avenue .... and, of course, to post your gorgeous makes whilst you're there :)  

I would like to enter my card into the following:

Creative Corner Challenges - Anything Goes
Di's Digi Designs - Flower Frenzy
Little Claire's Designs - Cards with Folds

I'll be back shortly with my second post of the day ..... going on an egg hunt with my boy now :)
