an injection of colour on a grey Sunday!

Hi there, thanks for stopping by, hope you're having a great weekend. Its been a grotty, grey, wet day here, although I didn't just about manage to get the dogs out for a run this morning.....then settled down with a cooked breakfast and watched a bit of "Little House on the Prairie".....its a bit of an old favourite of mine and I am working through a box set.
Washing the kitchen floor got ditched in favour of some much needed craft time....and this is the result
I have used the ever so sweet Wee Suzi from Wee stamps, and coloured her with Promarkers. I think the paper is from Dovecraft Garden Party stack, the flowers came from Mulberry Crafts, the Pearls and the button are from Hobby House, the sentiment is a Woodware stamp and the twine is from stash.

I would like to enter this into these challenges:
hobby house challenge - ribbons
passion for promarkers - ribbon, lace or twine
stampin for the weekend - happy birthday
my sheri crafts - use a digi
aud sentiments - any sentiment
cute card thursday - so sweet
crafting for all seasons - for the girls

So enjoy the rest of the weekend my friends, Megan has been badgering me to go through a couple of 6th form prospectus' with her, so Mummy duties call, but will be back later xx


  1. a beautiful card Lisa - and so much more fun than cleaning the floor lol!!! Wonderful xx

  2. This is a lovely card, gorgeous image and love the colour combo and papers. Hugs, Claire x

  3. OMG, Little House on the Prairie, that used to be on a Sunday morning when my eldest was a littley, we'd sit and watch it while lunch was cooking...happy days!!
    I certainly don't blame you foregoing the floor for a bit of crafting, what's the point when the four legged fiends just troop in muddy paws?!! I love the pretty colour combination and the ribbon and button look fab xx

    It has been so wet, wild and windy here too, and very dark grey except for about half an hour when the sun managed to break through!

  15. Oh my Lisa - I love your card! The lavender and yellow yell bright sunshine to me - so at least you brought it into your world here! The details in your design really make this card stand out: the pale design in your DP, that bow that is really unique in its structure and placement and the purple half pearls used as a dot on your "i" and as elements in your flower arrangement. I love looking at the details used to make a card special - and yours are very creative! Thanks for sharing your project in the “Any Sentiment” Challenge.
