Love & Hugs x

Pinch, punch first of the month...happy March! No way! It can't be March already!!! Where is this year going?! I will certainly feel better when the sun is shining & its not hailing & freezing cold!

Anyhoos I'm here today to show you a creation I have made for The Craft Garden. Over on the blog we are no longer doing challenges, but showcasing some of the fabulous crafty stash you can get from there.

The gorgeous crochet flower is my fabulous goodie from The Craft Garden & such a fab colour! Make sure you pop over & take a look at what there is x

It's also my first play with my Spectrum Aqua's & I must say I love, love, love them!!
But after much trial & error I think the best card/paper to use them with is Crafters Companions own water colouring card.
