St. David's Day Daffs

Hiya folks!

Hoorah - it's Friday! Not that it means much to me as I don't have a job besides raising the family, looking after the house and garden and other general 'home-maker' duties. Just means I get a small lie-in on Saturday and Sunday as there is no school - yeay!

So, how are things with you today? Glad you could drop by and spare me a few minutes of your precious time. I really do appreciate all your visits and the love you leave behind - means a lot to me you know. I don't get out much to speak to many folk other than the kids, or maybe the odd person who says hello in the village as I go to the post office. That's the trouble when you move somewhere new and there are no family or friends to help babysit - no social life! Well, I say 'new', we have been here for eight years now! Phew - where have those years gone??!!

Anyway, enough whining from me, and on to the card for today! This is a (hopefully) sunny and cheerful card that I have made for St. David's Day, on 1st March, which happens to fit a few challenges too - how convenient!

The layout follows the sketch at Papertake Weekly, which is a nice and simple one to follow:

At Stamp, Scrap and Doodle Saturday the theme is 'Spring' - just in time with this one I hope. . .

Then at Saturday Spotlight with Hidden Potential the theme is 'sun' or yellow. Not sure if this will fit there really as I think they are after a monotone yellow, and I have greens here too. Well, no harm in trying eh?

The Daffodil image is my own, available for purchase at my blog shop, Delicious Doodles. I coloured this with the usual watercolour pemcils, and layered with foam pads. The papers are Tinker & Co, and the cardstock is a lovely pearlescent yellow one I found at my local craft shop in Elgin.
