Good times...

 Good morning, hope everyone is keeping well and staying safe...and sane! I for one have had a good week- picked up my granddaughters from school on Wednesday (my daughter's late night, she has a staff meeting after school and Ruby is too young to go home on her own) so grandparents childcare service needed. I have to say it was great to have them in the house again, it feels like a big step towards getting back to normal :)

Today's card is for our new challenge at Crafty Catz, this week it's Billie's turn to host and the optional theme she has chosen is 'use your 3 favourite colours'.

This week we are sponsored by LeAnnes World 101

The DT were given some super-cute images to use, I chose Biker Chic I've used Copic Markers to colour in my favourite shades of blue, green and brown.

As always there are some lovely projects from my teamies over at Crafty Catz, so do hop over for a look.

Thanks for stopping by

It's lovely that you were able to see your grandchildren, hopefully, it won't be too long until we can get to some sort of normality.
That's a lovely card and a fab image too with a perfect sentiment to match. You're shading is so spot on and love the colours too. Take care Michelle x
