Hello Roses

Hey & Happy Monday!

Well my 3 and 1/2 day weekend with hubby and the beans went WAY too fast! We had some fun as a family including our first swim session with the beans. It actually went well considering I thought we would have to abort the mission before we even entered the pool! 

Anyway, I squeezed in a little crafty 'me' time on Saturday night and made todays card...

I was inspired to use a few new crafty supplies along with the current 'Less is More' challenge which this week is a sketch seen HERE and below.

So I treated myself to some new goodies, including these lush Pretty Pink Posh sequins :) I chose the Spring Mix as it contains my favourite colours. I've used the pink flowers & yellow cups on my card...

I combined 2 Mama Elephant dies on my card too along with the roses from Flower Power #6 and Background Builders: Vines. I was inspired by the Colour Me....! Challenge colours seen HERE and below, but I am a little too late to enter the challenge :( 

That's all from me today, I hope to be back tomorrow with more to share as I plan on a couple of hours in the studio tonight whilst hubby is watching the football! Until the next time, thank you for stopping by today.
