Had an early appointment for a blood test this morning, and as it was such a lovely day, we went back home, filled the flask, and set off for a day in the Yorkshire Dales, had lunch in Malham, then while hubby walked up to Malham Cove I sat on a bench and enjoyed the sun.On the way back we called at Samuel Taylors in Embsay,I didn't spend much ,as saving for Harrogate in March, but I enjoyed just stroking the papers.Anyway ,enough of my waffling, here is the card I made last night

I have had this image a while, but have only just plucked up the courage to colour it in, using copics and I am quite pleased with my first effort. I am entering this card in 3 challenges

Wild Orchid Challenge a sketch by Bev
Colour Creat Challenge choc, strawberries and cream
Craft Your Passion pink colour theme

Well i'd just like to say thank you for visiting my blog, and all comments are very much appreciated, Irene xx
