Crafty Catz Challenge #503 - Optional Twist- Use a sentiment

Good morning, another week has passed and It's Friday again - time for a new challenge at Crafty Catz. I have to say that the weeks are still flying by even though our movements and activities are restricted! We have had some lovely sunny days with the promise of more to come- Which means at least those of us who are lucky enough to have one can get outside and enjoy our gardens. I managed to get some compost at the supermarket yesterday and I'm looking forward to planting on some of the teeny tiny little plugs we ordered online. They were so small when they arrived that you practically needed a microscope to see them, but they have grown and need more space now! I planted seeds too and am really enjoying watching them grow- quite a novelty for me as usually I sow them, lovingly water them ....and nothing happens! 
Anyway back to the challenge, our lovely Janette is hosting this week and her chosen theme is 'use a sentiment'- as always this theme is optional.

We are also lucky to have a wonderful new sponsor 

One free digital download from her Etsy shop and a 30% coupon for all items in her Etsy shop SherryWestArt.

The team were given some fabulous images to play with, we all love them!
I used the sweet Leila Ladybug 0687, so delightful to colour. 
I kept my design very CAS just adding a stamped sentiment.
Why not hop over to Crafty Catz to see the beautiful cards my teamies have created using these pretty images, hopefully you'll be inspired to join in with our challenge this week.

Thanks for stopping by today, hope your weekend is good

Fabulous card, I just love the colour combo and these images are so cute.
I ordered plants from Suttons Chris, the first box came yesterday but they are almost ready to plant out, although I won't yet, just hardening off and the next lot will be here by the end of the month, really thrilled to just get some I was really miffed with the thought of no bedding out this year...enjoy your day.xx

Kathleen said...

A fabulous image and stunning colouring, great CAS card. Her hair is very much like mine but the grey/white is starting to show in mine, why do hairdressers have to shut?!
Cucumber are growing nicely but tomatoes are taking their time. What happened to Alan Titchmarsh, never hear about him these days.
Can't say have a nice weekend as everyday is a weekend.
