I hope you are all ok and keeping warm - here in Sussex we actually saw some sun - i nearly photographed it, in case we don't see it again !! H breaks up from school today for 2 weeks, so i'm not sure when i'll get another card made, as usual we have lots of fun things planned - beginners birdwatching, a Jacqueline Wilson exhibition, with craft activities - on at a local museum, a day of playing sports and this weekend he wants to got to Mercedes World at Weybridge, as he wants to see Jenson Buttons F1 car from last year.
Oh well i better go, as i can hear Alan calling me - he has got the day off and we are going out to lunch.

I don't really do Easter cards, so when i saw there was a couple of 'Pink' challenges, it gave me a good excuse to use this super image, that my lovely friend Janice sent me and i've never got round to using, till now  !!, the papers and sentiment are Pearlescent (not sure if photo shows it up ?) from Craftshouse - 'Winter Wonderland', the corner dies are Memory Box - 'Snowflake Corner', ribbon is from 'The Ribbon Girls', gems are from 'Joy Crafts'.

Today's Card And Challenges Are :

Winter Wonderland - where the Challenge is 'Pretty In Pink'

Papertake Weekly - where the Challenge is 'Sketchie Free For All' and i went for Sketch No: 77

Crafty Catz - where Challenge No: 175 is 'Sparkle With  A Bow'

Joanna Sheen - where the Challenge is 'Come Rain Or Shine' - i went for snow

Stampavie And More - where the Challenge is 'Pretty In Pink'
