Without Words - a time for renewal

Hello everyone!

Well, what a rotten weekend I've had!  I was just saying on Saturday morning how much better I was feeling, and hoping all the bugs were done with for a while... By Saturday evening I'd started with a tummy bug and was very very sick!  Now Dex is off school poorly, I've got so much to do and I'm soooo behind with all your blogs - really sorry :o(

Luckily I made this one last week... Our new challenge at Without Words is 'A Time for Renewal' with a focus on spring or Easter.  We're sponsored by the lovely Janet at Pink Gem Designs.  I made another Mother's Day card (surprise, surprise lol).  We'd love to see lots of you join in - but don't forget, you need a hand-coloured image and a clean & simple design.

Items Used
Digi stamp - Chloe with Daffodils - Pink Gem Designs
Colouring - copics
Paper - Prima Meadowlark
Sentiment - Pink Petticoat
Memory Box Corner Bow die - MCH
Pearls from my stash

I'm entering my card for the following challenges
Simon Says Stamp - anything goes
My Mum's Craft Shop - spring has sprung
Songbird - Mama, I Love You

**Enter my candy here**

Hopefully I'll be around to do a bit of catching up with you all later... Hope you all have a lovely day :o)
