Just a quickie from me today as lurgy is still rampant in this house!!
Is it just me or is each release from magnolia getting cuter and cuter?
I got my spring club kit yesterday!! (very early??? or am I going mad??) Too cute!! but there doesn't seem to be as much as usual in it!, no edwin at all!! Anyway I was really pleased at how this easel card turned out! still find it really difficult to take pictures of easel cards!!

Heres a better pic of main image!
I have coloured images with my copics, the DP is papermania, not quite sure of name, sorry! the flowers are wild orchid, the butterflies are magnolia do-hickys, which I have decorated with some crystals. the lovely satin edged organza is from ribbon oasis!
The challenges I would like to enter are:
