Donkey and Friends

Good Morning to you all my wonderful crafty friends.
I hope you are well and that you are having a good weekend.
We are all happy here as the colleges and schools have started their half-term holiday - yippee!!  I am sure you know how much I love having the children at home. We have nothing special planned, it's just nice to have a break from routine and spend some time together.

I'm here to share my DT card for Dies to Die For.
I used an adorable Crissy Armstrong Stamp by Whimsy with some beautiful My Minds Eye papers that are currently in the sale.
My flowers are made with the help of the wonderful  Die-namics Blueprints 3, I cut into them and shaped them slightly then added a Die-Namics Mini Rolled Rose to the centres.
For the corners I have used the Memory Box Ivy Tendrils die decorated with the fabulous Floral Delights.


Items used:


Thank you so much for stopping to look at my blog today. I really do appreciate it and love to read any comment you may wish to make.
I hope you enjoy the rest of the weekend
bye for now
hugs

Oh Sue, I always adore your coloring, but this is truly spectacular... your talent shines forth beautifully with this image! The design around it is equally lovely with the pretty papers and marvelous flowers and vines.

Hugs and blessings!
