Simon Says …. April Showers Bring Spring Flowers

Good morning everyone, so sorry for my lack of posts recently. I have been on nights and then had a really busy day on Saturday travelling to and from London with a concert in the middle – a rather hectic 13 hours!!!! Anyway, I am here at last and really do need to try and post a little more often.

You can always be certain that I am here every Wednesday though because it is always a brand new challenge from Simon Says Stamp Challenge Blog …… our theme this week is April Showers Bring Spring Flowers. Please feel free to interpret this as you wish. The design team are also showcasing products by Bo Bunny and/or Basic Grey. Check out the challenge blog for further inspiration.

I have coloured another image using very pale ink again to try and achieve a ‘no lines’ look – it is so difficult to do and really makes you think hard about your colouring.

I have been good and even decorated the inside of my card and made a matching box ….. How’s that for being more organised!!!!

I will try and get better pictures for you later

I am dashing off on a study day but should be back around 4pm so I will get my camera back out and hopefully the light will be a bit better.
