Sugar & Spice

A couple of weeks ago I entered Lexi's challenge for the first time and was so surprised when I won the Guest Designer spot!  The challenge this time was to use a sentiment and this cute 'Sugar & Spice' was the the one I picked. I thought it went so well with this Penny Black image, and to show the sentiment to its best, I thought  it had to be an easel card.  I made the roses after watching a few tutorials on UTube, but didn't add all the layers on the smaller one.
I am also entering this card in Craft Your Passions challenge - Double up in Pink
  Make It Monday - Always Anything Goes
  Heart Song Inspirations - Use Flowers/Felt
  Sentimental Sundays - Fancy Folds

We have just returned from a long weekend in the Lake District, one of my favourite places, the Autumn colours were gorgeous, the first piccy is Rydal Water, the other is Lake Windermere, I always think this is a lovely time of the year - especially if you are lucky with the weather.

Thats it for now, thanks for looking.  Hope you all have a good week,

Avril xx
