Crafty Catz DT Card - April showers bring forth MAY FLOWERS

Good morning nearly weekend and it is a long one with the bank holiday. Today at CRAFTY CATZ it is my turn to pick the challenge and hope you like what I have for you. As we have just gone into May and the old saying of April Showers bring forth MAY FLOWERS and with the weather we have been having thought it would be a good challenge.
I would like to see creations with Flower/s on it this means that as long as your image has a flower in it then that is ok. You don't have to make it the just flowers but if that's what you want to do then that's ok.

Our sponsor this week is CRIMSON CLOUD who is kindly giving the winner 3 Die Cut packs of their choice.

For my Card I have used a Digi Stamp Boutique image Jasper which I won . Isn't he cute wonder if he is sheltering under the flower or is he bringing it to a loved one I coloured him with my promarkers. Kept the layout simple to show off the image. Papers from stash think from a old Basic Grey pad. Cherry Lynn Die cut and a Memory Box cornor die. Pearls & Ribbon from Mia flower. Flowers from stash. Image cut with a scallop Nestie.

Well hope this has encouraged you to join us but for more inspiration pop along to the challenge blog and checkout the rest of the team. Did you enter our Anything goes last week if so Carol has posted the winner is it you. Thanks for popping by and have a lovely weekend.

A Diary For A Special Lady

Good afternoon are you having a lovely weekend. Today we have another Fab Challenge at Dream Valley.
Our sponsor this time is the very talented Krista  at Saturated Canary

My name is Krista Smith. I am the artist behind the Etsy shop, Saturated Canary Digis. I began working in the stamping world about a year ago when I was hired to create rubber designs for the sweet Scottish company, Sugar Nellie. They launched my artwork under the name 'Simply Sassy.' I moved into the digital world just this past month (it's been a super busy month, indeed!). And-- I love it!! There is a little more freedom here, as I can create anything that pops into my head:)! I am so humbled by the artistic talent of the girls coloring in my designs-- it is truly an inspiration! Likewise, I am so thankful for the friendships I've made in this wonderful and lovely crafty community! It's been a true delight! I'd love for you to stop by my challenge/inspiration blog, Saturated Canary Challenge and join in the fun...And, while you're there, click over to my personal blog (Saturated Canary) and introduce yourself! I am a bit eclectic and touch on everything from family (I've got me a great one!) to fashion (obsessed!)...Please say 'hi!'...I'd love to be friends!:)

The Prize for our winner is $10 Voucher

Now onto my project for this challenge and for those that follow my blog know that this week was my Friends Birthday and we agreed that we would not buy each other presents but make something.
