Time For Tea!

The image on this card is from Karen's Doodles and it is so cute and lovely to work with, it is called Herbert and Bigsby - Time for tea. The papers are Papermania's Rose Garden, the flowers are handmade, see lower down this post for some info on them. I have had a bit of a change to day and used promarkers, getting a bit better with them.

This is for:-

1. Karen's Doodles - challenge # 3 - Sketch

2. Colour Create - challenge 41 - Pastels + Spring

3. Cute Card Thursday - challenge 105 - Dimensions ( you will find dimention in my flowers and butterfly)

4. Passion For Promarkers - week 44 - Springtime + Animal

5. Creatalicious - challenge # 8 - Favourite drink (my favourite drink is a nice cup of TEA)

I would like to say a big thank you to all the well wishers that sent their best wishes for my Hubby, he came through the operation really well and avoided any severe bleeding that the Doctors were expecting. He is now resting up at home and is doing really well, but he is at home for two weeks, so don't know how much crafting i'll get done.

Now for something else, my good friend Fiona does the most beautiful handmade flowers and she had put them on my birthday card, my 14 year old son Scott saw them and thought they were great, now he wanted to make them too, but we didn't have the right punches, so he has used some we have, and taken Fiona's flowers and altered them to suit our punches. Hope you don't mind Fiona!

Scott made the purple and the blue and white one, then he showed me and I made the yellow polka dot one which I then used on todays card. Well done Scott, i will be using these a lot more since I don't own many fabric flowers (Prima's etc). They will be seen now along with the handmade roses i already make.

Now I would like to remind you all about the Sir Stampalot challenge which starts on Thursday 1st April. So pop on over and become a follower so you will be reminded when it starts, and your in for a real treat for the first challenge, the DT has worked hard and come up with some gorgeous creations.

Also there is still time to enter The Hero Arts Giveaway too.

Have a great week
Happy crafting
