Thinking of............. Warm sunny days ahead.....

Been such a lovely weekend here in Ellon this weekend. It`s been great to get the washing out and dry. I love the smell of washing that has been out in the fresh air. Which brings me to my card for two challenges I am going to enter it into.
The small picture above is the picture Fiona posted as our inspiration for this week challenge over at http://!/home.php?sk=group_162637607101606&ap=1
I had no hesitation in reaching for this stamp by Kathy Hare called, "Searching", another adorable stamp from Sugar Nellie. To me it opitimises the start of beautiful days to come now that hopefully winter is behind us and the longer daylight hours. It won`t be long until the clocks go forward an hour either.
Recipe for this card.
Searching by Kathy Hare coloured wth promarkers and I used chalk to do the sky using ripped pieces of card to mask the clouds.
Card was all Crafter`s Companion pearlescent range.
Ribbon and gems from own stash.
Embossed lines were done using my trusty Hoogy Board.
I`m also entering this into http:// The theme this week is Spring.
Hope you have all had a lovely weekend.
Hugs Linda xxxx
