Singing Bird

Hello everyone.
 First of all I would just like to thank you for your kind words for my Husband. He is feeling much better now and his head is healing quite nicely, although I try not to look too closely....eewwww!!

Anyway, less of that!! I am sharing a sweet image called
Singing Bird today. She is one of Naz's older images and a little less cute than normal.

I dug out an old Papermania pack and went with a blue colour scheme for a change and also went a bit flouncy!! I attempted an ombre effect with my Promarkers, which actually looks better in real life.

I hope my UK followers and visitors are now snow free and getting back to normal. We now have water everywhere but at least the temperatures are a little kinder than a week ago. Better go, I have four eyes looking at me expectantly as it's time my little helpers and I to put Surprise to bed!!

See you soon xx

Very sweet and a perfect mixture of DP, colouring and embellies as usual!
We had a flurry of the white stuff but friends have had more disruption. :(
The lambs are certainly enjoying the sun on their backs. Lots of twins and 3 sets of triplets just yesterday! :)

Your ombre effect with the markers turned out very pretty. Also loving that bit at the bottom that looks like delicate lace (but I think it might be DP. What a pretty young lady and once again, wonderful coloring & shading to create the dimension. The lacy circle is a perfect way to show her off. TFS & Hugs

Beautiful card Sarah! Gorgeous papers and card shape. Your colouring gives a fab ombre effect although the image looks a little surprised about it :D. Lovely flower arrangement and wonderfully tied bow too.
We had a flurry of snow again yesterday but luckily it didn't stick. There are still a lot of repairs to roofs going on in town after the high winds we had. Debra x

Sorry I missed your post re:- your hubby, hope his head is healing well. It's just so awful when these things happen.
We were trapped for 3 days but hey!ho! we had plenty supplies in.
The sun is shining today, the snow is meting fast ... Spring is on its way.
Have a great day and weekend.
