Spring has Sprung....

Good afternoon to you all, I hope this is finding you all well and busy crafting.

I had a little play at colouring again yesterday with a free image that I got from 

How I did not go over the lines is beyond me as we had some horrific weather Thunder/lightening, torrential downpour we could`nt even see across the road and it was very dark.
Before I finished the card this morning I thought I would have a go at making a daffodil, 
I think a bit more practice is needed lol.

Wedding Invites

Good afternoon to you all, hope you are all keeping well and you have not had that awful white stuff, we have had beautiful sunshine for most of the day.
I was very lucky to be asked if I would make the wedding/evening invitations for my Avon lady Sonia and her husband to be Ronnie.
 Sonia wanted butterflies on her cards to represent  the both of them and their son Alfie and they had to be purple, as that is the theme for the wedding, I made about 4 example cards for her to choose from and this is the one they picked.
