Friday Sketchers # 144, Craft Us Crazy # 3 and Cute Card Thursday # 154

Another quick post as I am heading out to do the school runs and then life kind of takes over until bedtime and I won't get a chance to post.

Had a good time ice-skating on Sunday although I didn't go on the ice but the girls and hubby enjoyed it and then we went over to Ikea.  Well there is not much point going up to Belfast and not stopping by.  Now that Shannon and Sophie are older they have been wanting full length mirrors in their rooms.  Got two in Ikeas sale, so two happy girls and then out for dinner on our way home. 

I made this card last night as I was waiting for Shannon coming home around midnight.  She was at The Script concert with her friends and our friends daughter was driving so we didn't have to take her up.  Worried about them on their way up and way down but they had a great night and Shannon said the concert was amazing, one of the best she has been to.

Anyway onto my card, I am entering it into three challenges:-

Friday Sketchers # 144 - Sketch
Cute Card Thursday # 154 - Signs of Spring (I know my colours are maybe more Autumn but hopefully the image and flowers and butterfly with count)
Craft Us Crazy # 3 - Nature (Again, hope the flowers and butterfly count)

Cardblank - Craftwork Cards
Cardstock - Paper Mill
Patterned Paper - Echo Park (definitely one of my favourite companies as their papers are always very versatile and colourful)
Martha Stewart Punch
Woodware Punch
Gems - Mei Flower
Butterfly - K & Co Grand Adhesions
Image - Sugar Nellie
Coloured with Distress Inks
Sentiment - Computer Generated

Thanks for popping by.  Rain has arrived this afternoon after it being nice and springlike for a few days. Enjoy the rest of your day.

totally agree it should defo be a law that you cant visit Belfast without a hit on Ikea...totally addictive Donna...oh the joys of being a parent, you either have to be a taxi or get to sit and worry when your not picking them up....your card is lush, I havent used this stamp for ages, must fish her out

Oooh, I like The Script! ;)

Love your card Donna, and a great take on the sketch. Your DP is fabulous (as always) and this card is so well balanced. The fence die looks perfect, and the image is very cute. Gorgeous colours and a really nice 'spring' feel.
