Hello, it has been a wonderful weekend full of fun. I took a day off work Friday to attend Scrapfest in Kitchener and had a blast. I will see if I can snap a pic of all my goodies tomorrow.
I also received word on Friday from Simon Says Stamp that my Distress Markers have finally arrived and are now on their way to me. Woo Hoo, I can't wait to play with them.
Unfortunately all good things must come to an end and it will be back to work tomorrow.

I have a card to share with you today. This one features Tilda with Rubber Boots and although I got this stamp last spring, I do believe that this is the first time it has ever been inked up. I decided that this image would be perfect for a challenge or two so I have coloured her up and then paper pieced her bow, dress and boots using some remnant of Basic Grey papers.

The bright and cheery flowers and the butterflies add the perfect spring touches to complement this image and in a rare occasion, I have actually added a sentiment using the Tim Holtz tattered banners die and a freebie stamp.

I hope that you have had a wonderful weekend. Thanks so much for popping by.

This card will be entered into the following challenges:
