Pink Flower card

Good afternoon friends, wishing you all a
very happy Easter for the weekend too!
Such a busy week for us next week but
more about that later. I hope to show
you an Easter card I made at some point
too......I hope being the operative word.
I am just popping in to show you my
'Less is More' card for this week. The
theme is.......
'What's Outside your window' 
I have some beautiful roses outside mine
so I went with that. I just had to buy this
lovely stamp as soon as I saw it. Sorry if
you now have stamp envy........blogging
does that a LOT to me I know!
First day of Spring today (so I am told,
my OH wasn't sure, he argues it's earlier).
Anyway I am back to my header with the
 bunny as it's Easter at the weekend and I am
sure of that ;)
Anyway come and have a closer look.
Also enjoy your week ahead whatever you
 have planned ;)
Ps. We have our new furniture ( not the
leather suite yet grrr) arriving tomorrow,
much excitement in our house. We have
moved all the old stuff (ready for auction)
 into our back sunlounge ( thank heavens
 for that room).
We are having our grandson to stay for 2
days next week AND we have also.....
(can't believe it still) bought a brand new car!
We saw the one (Nissan Quashqai) we have 
been after (right model, right colour)and  just
 went for it...yikes! We have to collect it while
we have Alexander too, he won't mind I think
 as he is mad on cars lol.
I think we will be living off beans on toast 
for the next month now lol. Oh and PLEASE
 just don't show me any stamps/craft stuff
 I NEED for the next few months please!!!
Having our usual Easter 'do' for the children
at the weekend too so I am going to be very
 busy I fear.
We got to see our daughter's new baby horsie
( only a year old) yesterday and I took lots
 of photographs for her. Thought you might 
like to see them. The first one is her new one
'McKelvie' ( named after my
 name). The last one is her older horse
 Harry ;)
Flower, Pink, CAS
Isn't the stamp just amazing!!!....I went with some masking and a watercolour look ;)
Also adding it to these Challenges too.

The stamp is fab Viv but I have colouring envy more than stash envy - you've done an amazing job with it what a beautiful rose.
That yearling is looking good too!

Hi Viv, This is a beautiful card, such a gorgeous and stylish CAS design with lovely colouring. Thank you for joining us this time at In The Pink.

Aileen Ryan said...

I had to come back and let you know I just got my stamp set and cant wait to get back home and play. Love how you have done this and starting to think I should have bought the wonky stitches rectangle die and not the square. Keeps popping up on everyones posts and all my other sets are rectangle so cant work out why I went square but it is so much more limiting. Ahhh well enough of a whinge, so love your card, such inspiration.

Chrissie said...

It's taken me a while to get around to seeing what's outside your window!
This is SO pretty Viv... as is your daughter!
Thanks so much
