Hedge & Ducklings

Hi,

I hope you all had a good Easter ?, Sunday was quiet, as it chucked it down with rain for most of the day - so the boys ate their Chocolate Eggs, as i have a Cow's Milk Allergy - i managed to find myself a Mallow Bunny in Asda, that is yummy. We did go out Good Friday to Arlington (near Eastbourne) Bluebell Walk, WOW  the bluebells were stunning and on Saturday we went to Leeds Castle, where Harrison did a Nature Trail, had his photo  taken with a knight in shinning armour and saw a puppet show.

Oh dear shame on me, i don't think i've ever used this image : Penny Black - 'Hedge & Ducklings - 2870K', the papers are : First Edition - 'Hideaway', punched edge is : MS - 'Lace Doily', the corner die is : MB - 'Pierson Corner', decorated with pearls from my stash, the ribbon is from : 'The Ribbon Girls' and i even found a Youtube video, to show me, how to make a double bow and it was easy, the brads are : Doodlebug - 'Boutique Brads / Bumblebee Assortment'.


The Challenges I Would Like To Enter Are :

The Ribbon Girls - where they have a colour Challenge 'Yellow / Lemon'

Allsorts  - where Challenge No: 255 is 'Birds And Feathers'

Sketch Saturday - where they are up to Sketch No: 306

Papertake Weekly - where the Challenge is 'White Plus One' - i've gone for Yellow

A Little Bit Crafty - where the Challenge is 'Birds And Bees'

Sweet Stampin' - where the Challenge is 'Lots Of Layers'

Thanks for looking and for any comments you would like to leave, would be most appreciated, Luv Sam x
