Precious friendships

It is great having a whole week's annual leave from work - lots of "me time" to do just what I want to do.  This probably explains why I've been posting a bit more than usual this week.  Treated myself to a little visit to my local craft store this morning and bought my first Tilda stamp (I can feel a collection starting already, oh no!).

Today's card has been made for Secret Crafter Saturday Challenge - this is my 2nd local craft shop.  How lucky am I to have TWO great craft stores within 5 minutes drive from home?  Not so good for the bank balance though!  Anyway, the challenge this week is FRIENDSHIP and this image was just right.  It is a precious moments free colouring page which I found on line and printed out at 30% normal size.  The Prima flowers and Grass leaf punch (by Woodware) are both from the Secret Crafter (who also have an online shop).  The paper has come from a Nana's nursery stack by DCWV.  I have added some card candy to the centre of the larger flowers and the small roses are from my stash.

The image has been coloured with my pro markers - I am also going to enter this card into the Passion for Promarkers challenge.  This week's challenge is GRATITUDE - because I feel that the image says it all!

Thanks for looking and pop back soon - off to test the new Tilda stamp now!
