Delight in the little things...

Good morning my friends, hope you enjoyed a good weekend and are feeling refreshed and raring to go for the week ahead! I had a really good couple of days... a family party on Saturday celebrating my two sisters birthdays (they were born years apart but on consecutive days...worst thing my parents ever did to me ...sooo expensive :) only joking, it was so nice to be all together again. Yesterday I had a very quiet and peaceful day. Hubby was well enough to go to a classic car show with his buddy...therapy for him...peace for me :) I spent the day reading and crafting, so lovely!
I had time to make a card for the current challenge at The East Wind,  I so love colouring these lovely images. This little beauty was a freebie a while ago and I've been itching to colour her up! I used mainly copics with a touch of gold gel pen and a splash of Wink of Stella. I fussy cut the image and placed her on the tag which is DP  lightly stenciled with distress ink . The flowers are die cut from blue vellum and the butterflies are stickers.
Thanks for visiting today, hope the week ahead is a good one!
