~~ Anything Goes - Fab'n'Funky Challenge #439

Hi everyone,
I hope this finds you well.

I've jumped on the challenge starting today at

Fab'n'Funky Challenge #439

This one is hosted by our lovely Wendy.  Yes she is back and we are so pleased
to have her with us again.   The theme this week is a favourite
"Anything Goes"

My card today is for our sweet granddaughter for her very special 16th birthday.
I coloured a digi from Aurora Wings called Flower Ballerina available
here in the shop.    It was perfect for her as she has taken ballet since age 4.


This is a 6 3/4 inch card so there is a little trick when using 12 x 12 inch cardstock.
Here is a picture of the back with an explanation.  Hope this helps.

```~~~ Easter ~~~```

Hello everyone
,
Rainy Easter weekend for us, a bit milder out though making the lawns green up.
I walked along the lake shore this week and noticed the boats are
starting to come ...a sure sign of Spring.
I also noticed the pair of Red Neck Grebe are back.
 Everyone is anxious for them to have babies ~ the past two years the water
has been too high and their nest has been submerged...sigh!

..on to my post.  I've an Easter card for you today that I made several weeks ago.
It features an image and sentiment from Mo's Digital Pencil.


Coloured with Copics
Die cuts are Memory Box
Ribbon from Stamp Simply Ribbon Store
Sparkle paper - the $ Store

I've another picture for you..this features the single Mute Swan that resides
at the marina...(there are others but this guy is alone)   
Not sure what happened to it's mate but it makes me sad to think of it.
The rest of the flock always swim in a group.  So elegant to watch them diving and skimming along.
There were cygnets for us to watch last summer. Swans are wonderful parents.

for some Christmas inspiration, this time from the Funky girls at

I received some new craft goodies recently and couldn't wait
to create with them.  Love the Memory Box stamps and matching dies.

using the coordinating die.
