Is winter coming to an end ..........?

Hi folks. What a beautiful couple of days we have had weather wise.  I hope you have all been lucky enough to have had similar weather and have had the time and opportunity to get out there and enjoy it.  As you can see from the photo's we are lucky enough to live near Cannock Chase, an area of outstanding beauty, where we can roam with our dog Mac and take advantage of the weather.

Anyway back to this afternoon.  I found the address of a craft shop that I had never been to before (mmm don't know how I managed to miss it as it is only a couple of miles away) and spent the afternoon doing what most of us crafters seem to do best, look, touch and spend more than we should on crafting goodies.  Eventually my daughter Becci dragged me out of the shop, otherwise I might just still have been there.  Bought some Cosmic Shimmer Pigments - never used them before, so I'll let you know how I get on.  But if some of you lovely people out there have any hints or suggestions on how to use them, please let me know.  I would love to hear from you.

Below is a card I have just completed for a friend's retirement in April this year.

I have used Fairy Doodlers Teddy Bo and Teddy Bea, digi image, coloured with Promarkers.  The papers are from Papermania's Exquisite Paper Collection.  The leaves and swirls are Marianne Creatables that I cut out of blue card then went over them with blue Sakura gelly pen which put a shimmer on them.  Unfortunately the camera hasn't picked up the blue very well or the shimmer effect.

Thanks to anyone who may have popped by and read my blog.
