Spring Daffs and a Brand New Image

Hello lovelies and hope everybody is OK today.
Not such a warm Spring day today but at least it isn't raining - yayy!!

I'm sharing a card which I made using one of the brand new digi images by my sweet friend, Ruth Hamilton. 

I've known Ruth for quite a few years and I can say without hesitation that she is one of the nicest, sincerest and most genuine people I've ever met (she will hate me saying that but it's so true).  

She's also rather good at the craft thing as well.

And I'm proud to call her my friend.

So I've used one of her images - this is Daffodils. 
It's perfect for this time of year.

I coloured it with Nuvo markers in the following colours - 

401 - Lemon Drops
405 - Indian Saffron
391 - Butternut  Squash

409 - Desert Sage
410 - Persian Lime
420 - Wildwood Moss

485 - Feather Grey
507 - Blender

I added a teeny tiny bit of glitter and some highlighting using a Posca Pen.

The sentiment is from Tonic Studios Sweet  & Simple Sentiments stamp set - I really like this set because there seems to be something for every occasion.

I'll add links and my affiliate links at the bottom in case you want a mooch :)

OK so you know I like a button and bow combi!! 
And I have a LOT of buttons. 

But could I find one in the exact shade I wanted? 


So I just coloured one with my Nuvo pen and added a few Posca pen dots.

Simple :)

I also like a nice spotty paper and the ones I used here are both from Crafty Devils. They are a really good quality and good value as well - they are 8x8 and you get 48 in a pack (4 sheets each of 12 colours). 

Ditto their stripey paper. 
They work nicely together because the shades all match which I really like. 

So that's my bright and cheery daffodil card and I hope you like it.

I'll be back soon with some more stuff.  
I am expecting a couple of things today which I am dying to use. 

One is an upgrade to something I sort of already have, and the other bag of goodies ... well let's just say I've waiting far too long to join this particular party!!

All will be revealed once they arrive. 
Oh please let it be soon lol.

Take care, stay safe and well and lots of love to all xx
