I can't believe that it's Good Friday - Easter seems very early this year, but the wintry weather isn't helping us to feel very spring-like! However, my daughter Lauren had a wonderful time yesterday (and definitely feels a bit more spring-like!). She was meeting up with some of her girlfriends at one of the girl's houses - who lives on a farm near us. So she spent a very happy few hours cuddling lambs, helping to feed them and then out on a quad bike to fetch in a ewe with 2 newborn lambs - much to her delight! I can imagine all the 'oohing' and 'aahhhing' that went on! A very pleasant break from assignments and revision! And my youngest has now broken up from school so I doubt that I'll see much of him before late mornings over the next 2 weeks! He's not one of nature's early risers..... And apparently I've got to buy him a bigger lunch box because there's not enough food in his box at the moment! Sigh.
Anyway, less waffle! As it's Friday it's time for a new challenge over at Totally Papercrafts and this week the Team A challenge is hosted by our lovely Carol who has chosen the theme of 'metal' - so we'd like to see some metal on your creations.
I've used a gorgeous LOTV stamp 'Coffee Break' and coloured it with promarkers and flexmarkers
The backing papers are from First Edition. I've added some lace from stash and some seam binding (from Pretty Little Ribbon shop) and some pretty blossoms from WOC with a Marianne die cut swirl. My touch of metal is that cute handbag charm, and then some pearls from stash to finish off.
and the inside decorated to match!
So do pop over to Totally Papercrafts and see the fabulous inspiration from the DT - and then join in! We are sponsored this week by
