Welcome to all my blogging friends! I am now a Stampin' Up!® Demonstrator.

Sunday 31 March 2013


Good morning to you and a Happy Easter. I hope the Easter Bunny left a few eggs for you all.
It is now officially British Summer Time and hope you remembered to put your clocks forward by 1 hour.
I am still enjoying life here in Spain although hubby went back home yesterday and I know he will notice a difference in temperature.

Our challenge for you at CD SUNDAY has been chosen by Jocelyn and she came up with

If you have already visited our Blog you will see we have a few changes taking place.
This is the last week for our own lovely Jenny to do your post. Jenny has been a major part of keeping the blog going, however after 3 years she has decided to take a temporary break and has handed over the reigns to fellow team mate Carol. Jenny was with me when the blog first started and I will miss her input but I know she will join in 'from the other side of the fence'
Thank you Jenny for all your hard work and welcome Carol to your new position.
 I know you will continue where Jenny has left off.

Sadly this is MARINA's last week as our Guest Designer, we have loved having her and I am sure she will be back later in the year. Thank you Marina you have done us proud with your designs.

On to this weeks challenge and my DT card is shown below

I decided to make an A5 card for a change and chose this beautiful image from
Paintbox Poppets CD by Crafters Companion.
This summed up my interpretation of Sugar & Spice, as the saying goes:
Sugar & Spice & all things nice, that is what little girls are made of.

It has been printed onto Glossy Photo Paper before matting onto a patchwork backing paper from Bearly Mine Designs CD.
I am a Card Candi fan so couldn't resist adding a few to the image.
The lace border is from Joanna Sheen and is self adhesive.
The whole of the design is attached to a Duck Egg Blue Card which I found in my stash here.

I hope you will join in with us again this week, we love to see your blogs and leave you comments.
Do take time from your busy Easter weekend to visit my fellow team mates blogs, lovely designs from them all once again.
