DT CARD, Secret Crafter Saturday Challenge #75

Hiya everyone, OMG can't believe how late I am with todays post!  Spent all morning trying to sort out my poorly car!  He's off into the garage on Monday and I've sorted a hire car out cos I think he'll be there a while!
It's absolutely bucketing it down here, gonna have a walk to shop with me brolly and pick up some bits and bobs. 

It's time for another Secret Crafter challenge today.  HUUUUGE thankyou to everyone that took part last week, we had a record 400+ entries WOW!  This week's challenge, set by my lovely teamie Helen, is the theme 

S P R I N G   H A S   S P R U N G

We would like to see spring cards, this may be colours or images or both!  Here's my DT card....

I love this image, it's one of my new House of Mouse stamps and knew immediately that I wanted to use the checked paper which I think is from DCWV spring pad.  The cardstock, ric rac and dew drops are from my stash. The buttons are also from my stash and co-ordinate perfectly, I think they're from doodlebug.  I used watercolour pencils and copics to colour and a touch of glamour dust on the raindrops.
My teamies have come up trumps again this week and you can see their creations here.  We'd love to see what you come up with for this and don't forget, your entry this week will be entered into the monthly draw for a prize which will be either an item from the Secret Crafter shop or  a £20.00 voucher to spend there.

I've got the house to myself tonight as Pete's working away and the kids are off to their nanna's til tomorrow evening.  I'm so excited as tomorrow I'm off to Harrogate with blogging buddy and SIL Crafting Joanne and I'm gonna get to meet Crafty Emma who is also coming with us YAAAYYYYYY!  I now have an annual leave day on Monday to give me chance to take car to garage etc, this is probably a good thing as I could well have been late in anyway - might have some new stash to play with lol.  Of course I could go and not spend a thing........oooh I just saw a flying pig rofl!!

Thanks for stopping by my little haven.  Take care and enjoy the weekend whatever you're doing.
