Emily Li'l Duckies Lacy Sunshine

Afternoon all
and finally, its the weekend!!! Hope your week has been a good one-mine has been so so busy but I prefer it that way at work if I'm honest, can't bear having nothing to do as the day just drags too much-not much chance of that where I work lol!!!
I am a bit nervous today as one of the teachers has asked me to make a new baby card for another teacher  and it will be sent from all the staff-so no pressure there then!!! Will be trawling the digi sites later for a suitable image and will have to get cracking tomorrow!
I've got the evening to myself tonight so am planning on having a bit of a craft evening and breaking out the huge box of choccies that a lovely teacher bought me today as a thank you -diet's out the window tonight I think!!
This card I have made through the week, a lovely blogger friend pointed me in the direction of these gorgeous digi stamps by Heather Valentin and I have made this card with the free image that Heather sent me so I can enter the challenge over at Lacy Sunshine. I had a look through the images and couldn't resist buying another couple so will hopefully get to make some cards over the next couple of days with them too.
I have used my promarkers to colour and have followed the sketch over at Sketch Saturday for the layout. I added some glossy accents to the water and as a couple of splashes but don't think it shows up too well on the photo. I used my hobbycraft edge punch down the middle strip and cut a fancy edge on the yellow paper with some fancy scissors. A couple of flowers finished off the card which is in my favourite shade of blue with yellow added too as I just love these colours together.-I hope you like it.

I would like to enter this into the following challenges:

Lacy Sunshine challenge 2 -Favourite colour
Bearly Mine challenge 75 - Anything goes
Joanna Sheen challenge - Layer it up
Little Miss Muffet challenge 55- Blue and yellow
Sketch Saturday challenge - week 247 (rotated)
My Mum's Craft Shop challenge 3 - Spring has Sprung

I hope you all have a truly wonderful weekend (weathers supposed to be brilliant next week so maybe time for spring???)
thanks so much for stopping by today, until next time.

  14. Such a sweet image Andree and lovely fresh spring colours. Great layout and design too.
    Have you thought of adding a little background to your stamps with distress inks or chalks to make your images really pop? Or a little shadow around and under them to give them grounding?
    Hope you don't mind me asking
