A Spoonfull of Sugar #116

Hi girls. Thanks for calling in to my blog. Hopefully you will find something you like. I appreciate your visit. Well after all my moaning recently yesterday produced some of the best weather that we have had all summer. Glorious sunshine and not too much wind. So moaning is over (at least till it rains). I got out into the garden to sit - or as far into the garden my oxygen tube would let me go and thouroughly enjoyed it. I hope you had a good day as well. I know some of you had big plans for the weekend so I hope the weather was kind to you.
I made this card for the current challenge over at A Spoonfull of Sugar following the sketch they gave. I have used one of my Lili of the Valley stamps called "On the Garden Wall" and coloured it using a mixture of Copics and Poly chromos Pencils. The more eagle eyed of you will notice that I have added a flower to her hat - I thought it needed it. The papers are From Paper Mania's Capsule Collection plus one that was a freebie in a magazine. The embellies are all from my stash, the flowers being from Wild Orchid.
If you have time it would be much appreciated if you could leave a comment to tell me what you think of this card. I love reading what you have to say.
Finally, a reminder that my friend Teri over at Delicious Doodles is on the second day of her week giving away a freebie each day. Why not pop over by clicking on the advert in my sidebar to see what is available today and while you're there have a look at her fantastic artwork.
I hope that as your week starts everything goes the way you planned and that you stay safe and healthy.
Love and Hugs,
