Lili of the Valley Dandelion Clock



Good afternoon everyone, hope you all have sunshine wherever you are.  It was lovely here in Cheshire this morning, the sun was shining and I even ventured out in t-shirt and flip flops but now its clouded over and its a wee bit chilly, but mustn't complain, summers on its way, yay!!!!

  Still, we managed to mow the lawn and do a bit of tidying up in the garden, it lovely to see the trees in bud and the birds twitterpating!  The entire side of our house is covered in ivy and its home to hundreds of sparrows and a family of wood pigeons, so its a little bit noisy at times but its fascinating to watch them fly in and out making nests for their little (and big!) babies!

This card is for my granddaughter Abbie's birthday next week......... and it fits a couple of challenges which is good.  The image is Dandelion Clock by LOTV, coloured with Copics and Promarkers. The digi sentiment is also LOTV, the papers are Fizzy Moon by Dovecraft.  Pearls, ribbon and lace from stash.

I am entering this card in the following challenges:



Thanks for looking, hope you enjoy the rest of your weekend!

Hugs,
