Good Morning!
Phew! I hope to be  getting back to normal today! {Well my kinda normal}
Our DIL has been away with School to Paris! For a Week!.
That meant I had to be up at 6.00 a.m. each morning to be at our Son's for 7.00 so he could go off to work!
I've been on School run each day! Pick up in the afternoons and then Freya had so many after School activities . The one I was looking forward to was a meal whilst she had her dancing lesson! No such luck! The kitchens had gone down and an hour half  later they still weren't fix..So that was a no go! I've even done one evening so the boys could go Kayaking.

Onto my card!
This little cutie comes from Sassy Cheryl's she came from a set of three images and it's called
A Simple Bunch of Flowers  Coloured with Copics/Pencils/Touch of White Pen on Cheeks.... Her hat I added dimension to...The eyes of this image 'cracked me up'.....Soooo that's what I did! I put Crackled Accents on them....There's Crystal Stickles on the petticoat too....Papers/Ribbon/Embellishments from stash...Magnolia fence as Shabby Pink Fran-tage on it..
Flowers are Kleaxions die distressed with Sugar spun..As is the Sky.........Sizzix/Spellbinder dies used..

Challenges entering.
