Peek a boo!

morning all, hope you are all fit and well and warm. We have a heavy frost this morning but have so far escaped the snow that keeps getting forcast. From my window I can see the birds sat on my garage roof waiting for me to put their breakfast out on the bird table so I best get on withthis post , but might take a break to pop and feed them if it seems to take too long.

My card for this post can be enteredinto a few challenges, which as I am short on craft time with my son needing lots of TLC due to his surgery is just as well, so I hope all the challenge teams understand and let me off.

The layout for my card is from the Klstampin n scrappin challenge and I really loved this layout. It looks complex when its really easy, and was transferable to the inside too.

The colour scheme is blossom and pastal green from passion with promarkers, I must admit I have only ever used blossom as a skin accent but love the colour for colouring in and can see I will now use it more often. I also used the pastal green to create my background paper, using it on the heart stamp which is made up of hearts- a freebie from a magazine last year but can't remember which.

The buuny inside the card I coloured in pastel green just for a little contrast, and I was really pleased with the outcome.

Moving along with the times has a recipe challenge, use at least 3 eyelets, 3 flowers andribbon. Well I've done that so I will enter their challenge too, it seems ages since I've managed to enter their challenge , I just don't know where time disappears too.

Die cuts R us have a ribbon challenge and as my card has ribbon on I will be entering their challenge too. They have some fab DT cards with ribbon ,why not take a look.

Cute card Thursday have a theme of 'Blooming Gorgeous' and as my card is quite springy and has flowers on I think I will enter their challenge too. I'm not sure what kind of flowers mine are suppose to be but they are a bit like a n echinachia or daisy or even a ragged robin, well thats what I imagine them to be.

Paperplay challenges also have a colour challenge of pink, green and white, all the colours on my card, so as I've just found this challenge its obviously meant to be.

Finally and by no means least . There is a new challenge blog called Totally papercrafts , set up by a group of friends and funnily enough there first challenge theme is friends. They have a fab fun blog hop to start you off with loads of inspiration and introducing themselves and there is even candy alongthe way. Why not pop over and join in the fun and help give their new venture a helping hand to get off to a sucessful start.
