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!

613 Avenue Create Ch #17

Good morning all - and what a beautiful morning it is in this part of the world! The sun has got his hat on again today, which makes yours truly a very happy bunny! 

Today is the start of a fresh challenge over at 613 Avenue Create and, for this week, the theme is ANYTHING GOES with an optional PHOTO INSPIRATION.

This week we are sponsored by Shelly's Images who are offering a $6 Gift Certificate to our challenge winner!

My card showcases the very sweet 'May Flowers' image, which I thought would be very apt seeing as we're almost through our April showers and shall be blossoming our way through to some pretty May flowers.

...... and here is the photo inspiration, of which I chose to follow the colours

For my card I used my pretty Daisy & Dandelion backing papers, which I've had for an age - but were perfect for the colour choice.  I also dug out one of my message bands from Craftwork Cards and attached ribbon and a coloured sentiment to it.  

I coloured my image in Promarkers this time - shock, horror! Lol - I've been neglecting them a bit recently and had actually forgotten how lovely they are to use!  I fussy cut around the image and added 3d foam to adhere to my grass and sky background - grass coloured with PM's, sky with Copics :)

I'd love for you to pop over and take a peek at my DTeamies fab designs and interpretations on the fabby photo inspiration this week - and we can't wait to see what you create this week!

I hope you like my pretty display this morning and I will be back in a little while with some very exciting news ......
