Finding a crocus

Evening all
I hope your weekend has been a good one and that the sun shone where you were!
I have had a lovely day, spent the day at Mum and Dads and had one of Mums gorgeous roast dinners-I always look forward to them but as usual the day went far too quickly though. I was very touched as Dad said he checks out my blog every week-will have to make sure I don't post his birthday cards here in future!!!
I'm so looking forward to this week, it's half term holidays so I've got a few afternoons full of crafting planned to play with some of my new bits and pieces!!
My card today uses my new First Edition paper pack Up Up and Away, full of gorgeous blue shades which are my favourite colours. The stamp is a Marianne stamp called Finding a Crocus and I've coloured it with my promarkers. I added some pearls, a greeting, and some punched flowers and butterflies to finish and I've decided it's going to be my sisters Easter card -hope you like it.

I'd like to enter this card into the following challenges:

A Gem of a Challenge -Dies and Punches
I Love Promarkers challenge 155 - One for the Girls
Pennys Papercrafty challenge 114 - Favourite colour combo

I'm off to get some jobs done so I can be ready to watch my fave programme soon-Hawaii 5-0 (just LOVE Steve Mcgarrett!!!!!)
Thanks so much for stopping by today, have a lovely week, until next time.
