CR84FN colour challenge and March in the UK

If like me you picked up a copy of the latest Simply Cards & Papercraft magazine ... not only would you have seen the wonderful creations by the Uber talented Mona Pendleton ... but you would have discovered a FREE pack of 6x6 papers from Websters Pages!! As I am a big fan of both Ms Mona's style and Websters pages ... I couldn't be happier ... And looking through the papers I found a couple that would co-ordinate perfectly with the latest challenge at CR84FN so I had to make a card ...

This is the colour pallet


... And this is my card ...


Websters papers are so pretty ... I added a couple of fabric flowers, with some paper ones and topped them with a pink Rhinestone .... the "Ooh La La" is a rubon I've had for ages in my supplies


... A Melissa Frances glittered chipboard heart and for my sentiment I combined two stamps from WaltzingMouse


We still have lovely sunshine here ... and this last week has seen so much change in the landscape and gardens ... Daffodils are abundant everywhere we go ... Here in Merseyside they are planted on embankments and central reservations ... along with a variety of crocus ... Driving becomes a pleasure ...
I caught this little butterfly in my garden yesterday enjoying the sunshine ... 


... I noticed that my garden is overrun with Ladybirds ...



Click on the photos to enlarge and see for yourself...There are so many of them! 

 The Forget-me-Nots are just starting to bloom

A peek at my primroses ... these are to be planted and some are already are filling the garden having been planted years ago ... they just come back



Wherever you are I hope the sun shines on you today ...

Till soon

~ Ros ~
