#571 - Umbrellas

 Good day everyone,

Major computer issues last week and yes I am getting far too old for these shenanigans. So happy they are resolved and life is back to normal.  Weather is back to our normal spring...strong winds, rain and cool temps.  Our recent "summer weather" was short lived but much appreciated.  

Today starts a new challenge at

Fab'n'Funky Challenge # 571

hosted by our lovely Ginny who has chosen the theme

"April Showers / May Flowers
(anything with Flowers/Umbrellas"

I've used MFT die cuts on my card. Background paper is from Whimsy Stamps.
I've coloured the clouds with VersaMark Sea Breeze
Sentiment is an old stamp from High Hopes.

I will be entering the following challenges:

Crafting Happiness Challenge #141

Dragonfly Dreams April Challenge

Lil Patch of Crafty Friends #204

Thanks for visiting today.
Hope you can play along with us.

 Hello everyone,

Hope your weekend is a good one. 
 Lots of sunshine and warm weather here that sure puts a smile on my face. 

Today starts a new challenge at

Sweet Stampin Challenge

where our theme is "Clean and Simple"

For this creation I dusted off an oldie. I've stamped all sides of a Stampendous Marble Texture Cube.
First layer uses Tim Holtz Spun Sugar distressed ink, second layer Dusty Rose and Memento London Fog on the third layer.  The sentiment is a MFT stamp.
The tulips cut using a Joy Craft die.

I would like to enter the following challenges:

**** Fab'n'Funky #570 ****

 Good day everyone,

I hope the sun is shining where you are and perhaps a little warmer as well.

Today starts a new challenge at

Fab'n'Funky Challenge #570

hosted by our lovely Sue who has asked us to show you some die cuts.

The theme this fortnight will be

"Add Die Cuts"

I am a fan of dies, especially those that create images.  I admit I find the little pieces stressful at times but I like the outcome so much I continue to buy them. I've used a new die from Spellbinders that I thought would be perfect for those boys in our lives. Background is SU embossing folders. Can you believe that in all the boxes of ribbons, twines etc I hoard I could not find any very fine red ribbon.  I did however find some white twine which I coloured with Copic marker R59 refill ink...and that did the trick. 

I would like to enter the following challenges:

Thanks for visiting.
Have a look at the blog and be inspired by my talented team mates and join in the fun.
hugs, Pat K
