SS Nice weather for Ducks

Good morning all.

Tomorrow is May and I am so hoping for the weather to become warmer with lots more sun. Seems at the moment I am trying to dry my clothes on a yo-yo string - in one moment, out the next - to avoid the showers.

I made this card as Barbara (LMM boss) posted a question on the LMM facebook page - she said she had the hardest time working with bold and bright papers and ask for anyone to post inspirations. She's even offering a little goodie bag - now how fun is that?! You have until 14th May to post your creations.

I have use SS Nice weather for ducks from the latest release

Owl Tower

Oh ^%*&* - she's back. Told you I had a super crafty week-end lol. It's been AGES since I last made an ATC and had forgotten how fun they are to make (and swap). So I had a little play with one of the fun owls from PINK CAT STUDIO. I love these owls :).

All Grown Up

Good morning all.

Hope you all had a wonderful Easter and the bunny came to visit. Phoebe was definitely lucky - we'll have chocolate till Christmas :). And he also left a DVD "Rise of the Guardians" featuring ...... The Easter Bunny lol. 
We had a nice roast lamb dinner and just relaxed all day, which is what holidays with family is all about.

My Easter egg was finding out I had won a facebook contest .... no wait, I won twice :). A gift voucher for Mo Manning and Elisabeth Bell's Easter give-away. Wish I had done the lottery too.

Today's creation ......
