WhooHooo a little bit of crafty time for me!!

OMGOSH it feels like forever since I sat at my desk to put a card together... Renovating is such a drag and a pain and so many things go wrong... How will I go when its time to build the new house?? eeck..  But enough about that...

Tonight I have managed to whip up a card for a few challenges... I hope the challenges are still current, that I want to enter, it seems like I get around to making the card, and the challenge is over... bummer that!!

Anyway here is my card, its Tilda with an armful of Tulips... now I have used (more like tried) my Prisma Pencils for the flowers.... they took forever but I think they look reasonable for a learner Prisma colour pencil user!! So I hope you love it as much as me!!

The challenges I would love to enter are:

Just Magnolia & H&S - A sketch
Make it Colourful - Black hair
Simon Says Stamp and Show - Buttons
Magnolia Stamp Lovers - Flowers - mmmm I hope my 1 counts
