Spring Meadow!

Hello Everyone, I hope you are well and having better weather than we are, it's been raining all day, is dark and chilly. Last night when Teallach was about to go out, I opened the door for him and it was snowing, much too wet to lie, but my boy was having none of it and refused to go out. How he manages I don't know, but he was fine till this morning when he made a dash in and then back in.

Unfortunately, we had to go into the town this morning, hate it, but once home got settled into my craft room and came up with this little card;
Difficult to photo because of the mirri card, Little Claire stamp and coloured with Derwent Ink intense Pencils.Background is DI and applied with Ink Dusters, Inkylicious little birds stamp, lots of sparkle. Matted on to card and edged with Amethyst Starlight Paint.

Just a short post today, but before I go, just want to say thanks so much to all of you lovely people who visit and leave such kind comments, much appreciated.

I hope your day has been a good one, and here's to a great weekend, take care,
I'd like to enter my card into;

Hi Kate,
what a very super card and your inking and stamping is gorgeous.
I love the wonderful scene you have created too.
Such wonderful colours to the edges done with the starlight paints also.
We have had about 10 glorious days here in Kent, but today it keeps going cloudy and looks very much like rain, but the weather is at least warmish.
So sorry your experiencing such horrible weather at the mo.
Lots of crafty love. Jenny L.

Hi Kate
Sorry I'm behind but I was a bit busy Friday lol!
Smashing card and your colouring, as always, is superb.
I don't blame T Boy for staying in the dry ...... I'd check for a damp patch behind the sofa though lol!

This is such a pretty card Kate - not usually a huge fan of mirri but it's perfect on this.

We missed the snow here but my daughter had quite a lot in North Yorkshire - I'm ready for Spring now!
