Hope you all have had a fantastic week-end, the weather hasn't been too bad has it... just cold bbrrr! Can you believe we are almost out of March already. David and I are going to Germany this week as it's our Grandsons 6th Birthday, he is growing up so fast! Really looking forward to it.
Anyway on to my card for today, it's Tuesday so it's time for another challenge over at Papertake Weekly which is a lovely sketch challenge. You can use the new sketch that Dawny has done, or you can choose a different one from the lovely collection on the Papertake Weekly blog here, but remember it must be one of ours. I chose the new sketch, it was lovely to work with and I really enjoyed making it, once I had found my mojo as he did a little walk about this week lol!!
I used another LOTV pre-coloured art pad image from Set 3 'Wild Flowers'... I used a sprinkling of frantage around the edges, I love this stuff! (I did knock the whole jar over, but managed to scoop most of it up lol!!).. I've just had one of those weeks lol!! It's lovely and sparkly as I used lots of Stardust Stickles on the flowers, butterflies and my flower at the bottom. I also put a strip of navy and gold ribbon tucked under the blue panel, the photo doesn't show it up to well, but the little bit of gold really sparkles too. The flower die is a gorgeous Tim Holtz die that I bought at the 'Harrogate' show last week, I think I'm going to get a lot of use out of this, and of course I used my old faithful 'Marianne' swirl die! butterflies are Martha Stewart all jazzed up with stickles and pearls. I also popped the lovely doo hickey 'So wrapped, Lovely' Die into the side. The lovely papers are 'Petal Fresh' from LOTV by Mary Fran.

Hope you all have a 'FABULOUS' Mother's Day on Sunday, and hope you all get very, very spoilt. When my kids were little I always got breakfast in bed (which David and the kids had put together) and we would all open my pressies together, me still half a sleep, but the kids loved it, and the kids would jump up and down on the bed with excitement and say 'come on Mum open your pressies, come on lol!! It was fabulous, do miss those special times. What would we do without memories hey! Talking about memory, don't forget to pop over to PTW and see the fabulous cards the other girls have made, lots of fabulous inspiration and a prize to be won too!...
Sorry I seem to have waffled on a bit here... Have a great week and take care...
Love and Hugs,
