spring wedding

Good morning lovelies - I hope you are fine and well and enjoying the weekend. We had a fabulous day yesterday - my car got fixed - new brake pads and discs - and not too bad a price - then after lunch we took the girls on a 3 and a half mile circular cycle route with a park just over half way - it was just glorious in the sunshine we had yesterday - really felt as though Spring was close! Lets hope so eh?

Today I've got a card I made from one of the recent LOTV releases - I just had to have this stamp as when on the LOTV ideas to inspire site - or was it facebook? - they asked for ideas of images that we the public would want - this is the one I said I wanted - I know lots of others would have said the same thing but it still feels a bit special - anyway - here's my card!







I've used some papers free from a magazine a long time ago and a card blank from kanban - a normal round card that I've turned into an easel. I've also used my circular grand dies from spellbinders - the two smallest sizes. The stamped image has been coloured with promarkers and I've added DI boken china around the image outside. The flowers are WOC. As I mentioned the stamp is LOTV and the sentiment is too.

I'd like to enter this for the following challenges:

sweetstampinchallengeblog: Love is all around
craftycalendarchallenge: Love and marriage
cardcrafterscircle: Springtime
ladybugcrafts: Valentines/Love
craftycatzweeklychallenge: Not square
LLFliliofthevalleythursdaychallenge: Not square
ilovepromarkers: Love is in the air

Hope you have a fab Sunday and thanks for dropping by - I'm taking the girls to a swimming party today - I'll take my craft bag with me - lots of images to colour up! Hope to see you again soon!

Love and hugs

Rachel xx
