Bright and cheerful.....

Hiya.... Hope you're all having a good day.
I'm still having serious computer issues so I'm lucky to be on here at all! If I go AWOL for a couple of days, please don't take it personally - I'll be at the doctors with my poor old pc!

I wanted to do something bright and cheerful and then I found this fab forever friends image which is just asking for a bright cheery yellow :-) I used my promarkers as usual and cut it out with my nesties, keeping the die in place to sponge a yellow background to the image.

I used my xcut leafy lace border punch to go around the edge cut from some wild rose studio papers. I used my poor old pc to print out the Happy Mother's Day sentiment :-)

I added some ribbon, gems, flowers and a charm from my stash.....

That's about it! Just the challenges:

Sketch Saturday - Fab sketch (I've flipped it)
Whoopsi Daisy - Ribbons and Charms
Sarah Hurley - Four legged friends
Forever Friends - Monochrome
Crafty Cardmakers - Fabric (ribbon counts - I checked!)
Simon Says Stamp - Anything goes
Ladybug Crafts Ink - Spring colours

Enjoy the rest of the day :-)
Love 'n' hugs,

Lin said...

Sorry to hear you are having pc probs Mel. I am a smart ass who builds her own pcs! I got fed up of spending a fortune on engineers so I learned to do it myself.

Anyhow I digress. Thanks for joining in with my fabric challenge at Crafty Cardmakers with your lovely card.
