Have a wonderful day

 Good morning, I hope you've enjoyed a good week, it's been a busy one here but the decking is all finished at last and the garden is ready for the sunshine and warm weather that's been promised all week, to be fair we have had sunny afternoons but the wind is still pretty cold- supposed to be a lot warmer this weekend- we shall see! I'm hoping it will be as my son is planning a family BBQ for Sunday and I love to see all my granddaughters together. Marvin has been invited too and he's really looking forward to it!! He does love a barbie!

My card today is my DT make for this week's challenge at Crafty Catz, our sponsor for this week is

 and the optional twist chosen by Rhoda  is ' Use pink and purple '

I made a centre step card- haven't made one of these for ages, the image is by Ching Chou Kuik, Peony,  a real beauty and lovely to colour with my markers. I've added die cut trellis, flowers and leaves, a few pearls and a stamped sentiment.

There's lots to see over at Crafty Catz so please do hop on over- hope you choose to play along- remember the theme is optional - anything goes!

Thanks for visiting

have a super weekend

Gorgeous card Chris, very different image and I love it.
Glad your all set for enjoying your garden and the BBQ sounds wonderful.
It has been very hot and as you say the wind is still chilly, although this week I have been glad of it at times as it got abit too much for me, not complaining I love it. Have a lovely weekend, Marvin included :)) xx

Absolutely beautiful Chris, gorgeous image and coloured beautifully and I love the centre step card and planning on making one today, tried a side step the other day got it wrong, tried again and cut from the bottom instead of the top, so managed it in the end, my poor brain, and going to do a centre one today..I love this very much, enjoy your barbie and glad Marvin can go..
