Flowers, Flowers Everywhere!!!!!

I'm so sorry this post is late!! I haven't been sleeping well at all the last few weeks & today I didn't wake up until 11:45 oops! didn't even wake up when
the girlies went to school!!!! & I know I'm not gonna sleep tonight now argghhhh!!! but never mind on with todays card....

My friend Jules is having a day, her day is Sunday where she uses her scraps, as I try my hardest not to make cards at the weekend!! I have decided to use my scraps whenever I can lol...this little Sprout card is made up of scraps! I think its a fab way to get rid of that ever increasing pile of scraps lolol ...

Well this week at MAWTT we have a fab challenge for you....
we have this gorgeous photo for inspiration

I decided to take my inspiration from the flowers, but you could
use the colour or both!!!
To make Sprout look a bit dirty I used my long neglected chalks to give her dirty patches...I think it looks fab!!

I have used SPROUT she is a gorgeous image which you can get from Jak, she is in a set which Jak is selling to raise money for Katie who is a fellow crafter & has recently been diagnosed with cancer. So pop over to HELP FOR KATIE & have a look at all the fab images you get!!!

Hi Shell

To begin with I thought you were showing us a bouquet of flowers that Nige had sent you early for Valentine's!! LOL!!!

Love your card .. .. well done on using up some of your scraps.

I love what you have done with your image and how you have made her a bit "grubby". Just what a child would look like after a spell in the garden LOL!!!

Sounds like you need to catch up on a bit of sleep matie!!

Have a good weekend.

Love Jules xx
