Springtime! - DT post for Moving along with the times

Good morning bloggers! 

I hope your week has gone ok? 
Weather has been awful but hopefully weatherman is correct in saying it's going to warm up next week

With that in mind there's a new challenge over at moving along with the times and yes you've guessed it the theme is "Springtime!" . 
Would be lovely to see nice summer colours with flowers , bees , birds , countryside oh the list can go on loll 

The host hosting this week's challenge is : 
Its Diane Louise here, your Host for this fortnights challenge and I have chosen the theme of... 

Looking forward to seeing what you all create

I've made an 8x8 square card and have used a fluffy besties image which I won in a challenge 

I coloured her in using my spectrum markers and nova pens. 

 I've joined up on a site on Facebook called kit and Clowder and I'm addicted!  The lady Alyce actually gives classes on colouring and shows via video and instructions step by step instructions on the best techniques to use.  It's an amazing group and I've been doing some free classes , practising and have now signed up for the monthly class.  You can join here or just look around to see what you think but you won't be dissapointed lol : 

Kit and clowder

Once I finished colouring using the nova pens and spectrum noirs I fussy cut around her and used some rainbow diamond stickles to put in middle of flowers. 

I matted and layered her onto some papers I won at "We are 3 Papers" site , her designs and colours are just stunning. 

I also used Mirri card to Matt her onto . 

The die cut she's on is an A5 X-cut die which I cut to size and used a Hunkydory border topper to stick onto it.

Other papers I used are what I got free from Create and craft Members club, stunning pastel and flower papers. 

The corner dies are from Couture. The flowers were made from white foam sheets and the papers from hobby house kit using spellbinders and tatteredlace flower dies and foliage. 

I inked the foam using a dark pink ink pad and manipulated into shape using my hands and embossing tool. 

Sentiment, ribbon and pom poms embellishments are from my crafty stash.

Look forward to seeing your beautiful work

Lots of love
