The Wonder of Life

Hiya folks!

Don't you just loooooove a sunny start to the day? We have been very fortunate here in NE Scotland recently with dry weather, bit windy and chilly at times, but at least it hasn't been pouring down. Sparing a thought though for those with impending hosepipe bans!!

Anyhowz, today sees the launch of the new theme at the
and this time we are celebrating
The Wonder of Life

I created a brand new image just for this challenge named
'A Mother's Love',
which you could use for Mother's Day creations as well as New Life/New Baby makes!
It's available now in the Delicious Doodles Shop.

Here is the card I made using it:

I kept it very simple this week, not too much added froo-froo. The layout is following a sketch. I made the baby hand backing paper myself, printed it out in a pale green on pale yellow. Ribbon and lace from the stash, as were the big pearls. Flower made using offcuts of card, inky bits and dies from Marianne and Tim Holtz.

I have used yellow bazzill to layer with. I kept the image to just one layer, coloured very softly with my watercolour pencils (but not watered). Text is computer generated, and raised on a foam pad.

Hope you can join us this time peeps!

Busy day again today. Got to get on and do me some tone-up exercises (have lost 3lb so far), then a stroll up the garden centre for some labels before it does rain later (maybe). Then it's down to business doodling some more exclusive digi-designs for Crafts and Me (and my own shop).
MUST get round to some paperwork too (ugh!). At least I am done with another two chapters of Father's exciting Cricket book (yawn) note to self - get it in the post!!

Catch ya later folks!!

Some challenges -

Crafting for all Seasons - Green and Yellow
Divas by Design - Citrus Colours (lemon and lime)
Simon Says Stamp - Bit o'Green
Ladybug Crafts Ink - Anything Goes
CutiePie Challenge - Pearls and Swirls (hope it's cute enough!)
