April Showers bring May flowers

Monday morning again and another challenge starts at


This time it's "April Showers Bring May Flowers" 

I think I speak for many when I say I'm thoroughly fed up with the amount of "showers" that were bestowed upon us in the last six months so have firmly gone with the May flowers!!



I used a MFT stamp and coloured her with Pro/Flexmarkers. The papers were free with a magazine and I found some lovely ribbon in my stash that was a perfect finishing touch. I followed a LOTV sketch #9. I recently bought the Tag Along Stamp and Dies sets from Clearly Besotted, and this is their first outing .

Some challenges to play along with

Simply Create Too #60 - Stack 'em up
Brown Sugar #91 - Anything Goes
Creative fingers #33 - BINGO
 (Top L to Bottom R diagonally . Die cut, image, ribbon)

Thanks for your lovely comments. They mean a lot xx
