Copics Colours #37 & Papertake Weekly - "Spots 'n' Stripes"

Thank you for visiting my blog, I hope you like what you find. I hope this finds you all well in blogland. The start of a new week and, guess what, no aquatherapy this week, I'm now left to get on with the routines on my own at our local pool ( 400 yards away) instead of travelling into Perth.
But on to business. There are two subjects for this post today.
Firstly, I made this card for 2 challenges,
Copics Colour where the colours are R20 - Blush, YG 06 - Yellowish Green and E33 - Sand and
Papertake Weekly - where the theme is "Spots 'n' Stripes".
The image is Magnolia's "Tilda with Presents" coloured as usual with my Copic Ciaos. All the papers are from My Mind's Eye - paper pad stack and the ribbon and flowers are from my stash. The bottom border was done using my new Martha Stewart Arch Border Punch.
Award from America
I was given this award by Linda at Payne Holler Cards a few days ago but the way things have been I am late in acknowledging it - Sorry Linda and thank you for counting me as one of your friends. Linda has been a faithful follower of my blog since the beginning and has been a great encouragement. She is wonderfully creative so why not give her a visit. In America when you are given this award you are asked to list 5 facts about yourself - so here goes.

I am a Christian and have been for nearly all my life and have been wonderfully blessed by the Lord who never fails me.

I have been married for over 39 years to my best friend who supports me in everything I do.

I have 2 grown-up sons, John and Andrew, who are both married to Sarahs, and have 3 lovely grandchildren, Jonathan (13), Ellie (6) and Daniel (9 months).

I have tried most hand crafts over the years but am now well and truly hooked on cardmaking.

I have a one-eyed Cavalier King Charles Spaniel called Amy who at 10 years old is still a playful puppy and cuddly lapdog.

I have decided to pass this award on to the following people,
Avril Ann - I've recently found her blog and love her work,

Teri - she has been a regular on my blog and is a great encouragement, and

Gez - I love her work which is so varied and always interesting.

Over to you girls,
