Spring? At Last?

Hurray! It's Saturday, the sun is shining (at the moment!) and I've finished work for 2 weeks for our Easter break. Yay! We haven't got a huge amount planned for these holidays, a couple of days out, catching up with friends, jobs in the garden, etc., but I'm definitely looking forward to that calmer pace of life after what seems to have been a particularly hectic couple of weeks.  And I'm hoping it also means some 'crafting time' can get scheduled in too.

But today's card is a rather suitable one for a sunshiney spring day, featuring one of my favourite little Mo Manning digi stamps called (appropriately!) - April.  Isn't she so cute?

In fact I was busy doing just that in the garden this morning (although definitely not looking quite as cute lol!). I've coloured the digi stamp with copics and pencil

The papers are from Hunkydory, flowers from WOC and the sentiment is from LOTV. 
I hadn't made an easel style card for ages, so I used some Tonic dies to make the shaped easel. 

Hope you like it. 

And I'm so pleased that the Mo's Digital Pencil challenge blog is back up and running, so she's being entered into that too! 

The card is now up for sale on Etsy HERE.

I hope you enjoy your weekend, whatever you have planned.
Back soon,
Kim x
