Hi Peeps, hope your all well and I hope you've been getting a bit of spring weather, I know here in N.ireland its been beautiful these last few days, well today is a bit dull but we can't be greedy.  So, with spring in the air I had to buy myself a bunch of daffodils from the Digi Doodle Shop, aren't they lovely. Daffodils are one of my favourite flowers, they always remind me of the kids, especially my two eldest, when they were young they regularly came home with a bunch of daffodils for me, of course after the initial "Aww they are beautiful" came  the suspicious " Where did you get them?" fearing some angry green fingered neighbour darkening my door lol. Ok, back to the card, I've coloured the image with promarkers and I've added some crystal effect droplets onto the flower as dew, the dp (Designer Paper to you lee-anne lol) is 'Woodland Folk' which has been embossed with a swiss dots folder, I made the swirls with my cricut machine and embossed those too then added little punched flowers, spring brad from my stash, ribbon from my stash, tags using Stampin up little tag punch.
Well I have two sick children at home today, another stomach bug and my 6 year old Kalen really doesn't like being sick and keeps asking me if his skin is 'peachy' and i have to say "Yes kalen, your skin is still peachy" he thinks when he goes 'white' he is going to be sick as when he was last sick people kept telling him he was as 'white as a sheet', so you can't tell Kalen he is 'pale' or 'white' he gets into a panic lol.
