Lovely lemon !

Happy Wednesday thanks for visiting x

As I type the sun is shining and I am sitting in the dining room with the doors open. I can smell the scent of these gorgeous double daf's and the world is good ! Oh how I love spring !


Anyway back to business !

Wednesday means that it's time for another challenge over at cooking it up with Katie and another week means another fab' sponsor which this week is Digi's with attitude.

This week Katie wants us to use the following ingredients;

Monochrome
Scallops
and a die cut

I knew I wanted to use a bright spring colour and of course yellow/lemon was at the top of my spring list !

While browsing through the other challenge sites that I love I went back to the etsy inspired challenge which I have already entered this week but I found so much inspiration from the XS baggage Co this week and had to have another go !

This photo inspired me to use one of my digi stamps from The wax fruit company by the super talented Arielle.

I love the effect of this stamp with the yellow colour scheme - it looks so fresh.

I outlined the image with my new sakura clear glaze pen and it really made a huge difference although you can't really see it in the photo.

That fabulous gingham paper is a digital paper from the creative cottage.

I would like to add my card to the following challenges;

Etsy Inspired Challenge
- See inspiration pic above
Wax Fruit Company - Double your chances of winning !!
The Crafty Pad - Flowers
Paper Sundaes - Spring blossoms
Sparkles Forum Challenge - Springtime
Crafty Cardmakers - Recipe - yellow, ribbon, stitching (on ribbon) and gems
Woodware USA - Monochromatic
Claudia & Co - Monochrome

Thanks for stopping by today I do hope you will join us at cooking it up with Katie this week for your chance to win another great prize x

((hugs)) Suzie xoxo
