Creative time

Between helping at the school 2 days a week and all the nice weather I have found it hard to sit indoors and create. There is so much to do in the garden and I absolutely love working with the kids. Today being rainy and gloomy was the perfect day for some creative time. I made this card for 2 challenges, Totaly Papercrafts Challenge # 13 (Recipe - 4 Embellies(4 flowers), 3 papers(yellow,Gingham,Clouds), 2 ribbons or lace(green and red bow) and 1 image)and Simon Says Stamp Blog Challenge - Buttons(in the flower), Bows(in the girls hair) and Bling(flowers). For my card I used cloud paper from Fancy pants designs. The gingham and yellow pattern papers are unknown as they came from my scrap bins. The image is from Sugar Nellie and the flowers and bling are Prima. The lace and ribbon bow are from my stash. I coloured the stamped image with watercolour pencils and Smooch ink. Doesn't she look cute painting the flowers ....only one left. If you like my work and would like to leave a comment they arevery much appreciated. thanks for peeping. Angela
