Tender Moment

This weeks Flourishes Timeless Tuesday Challenge is all about scoring and was chosen by Silke.....a challenge for me as I don't have a ScorPal BUT what I do have is some garden wire and a Cuttlebug!! If you look carefully you can see the scoring on the background CS!
I have coloured this adorable Sarah Kay image with chalks - it is the first time I have used a Sarah Kay image, this one was part of a Blog Candy that I won from Tracey over at Stamping All Seasons, I really loved colouring her in, it was easier than I imagined! So thank Tracey - I am loving all of the goodies you sent me...I am also enjoying your Blog!
Those fabulous flowers are also from A Blog Candy - I won them from Sharon's Blog. Aren't they stunning, I wasn't sure about them at first but am loving them, they add such a lot of dimension to a card, as well as looking divine!! I just had to show you a close up!
It is a big week for Flourishes this week - it is their second Birthday so make sure you go and check out what is happening....their Release Party will be happening in a few hours!! CHECK IT OUT!!!
Thanks for stopping by and for your comments - you make my day! It means so much to me to know that you have been here!! Have a great day and fabulous weekend - we are hoping to get into the garden for a little while tomorrow, it is only four weeks until my Mum and sister arrive from New Zealand for a two week holiday....I can't wait!! God bless you!
Edit: I have just seen that this card fits the One Stop Craft Challenge for this week, which is all about roses!!
AND for the Stampin' for the Weekend Challenge which calls for VINTAGE cards....I am thinking this is vintage!
AND Pile It On Challenge where are are to use no patterned paper - Yay - this one fits!
