Crafty Calendar March Challenge 'Flower Power.

Apologies for some reason this did not post yesterday as it should have.

Well I am back I had a lovely rest whilst at respite and my family are nearly all recovered. Have spent a couple of days sorting out my youngest son's change of school which is not easy during GCSE years but had to be done as he just wasn't getting anywhere at his current school. Just got to collect his new uniform on Monday and then it looks like he will start the following Monday.
Anyhow enough of all that, here is my design team card for Crafty Calendar Challenges and this month the theme is 'Flower Power' wtih the added option of using 'Pastel Colours'. As I said in my last post I now have a lovely new Cricut Expression machine and so I had a play with it on Wednesday to create this card, it is not perfect but for a first time I am happy.

Please excuse the paper clip on this next photo I just used it to keep it closed as it was still wet when I took the photo.
A5 Card Blank - Craft Superstore
Designer Papers - Papermania 'Blueberry Hill'
Cardstock - Paper Mill Shop
Stamp - Crafty Sentiments 'Teddy With Flowers'
Medium - Promarkers

This card also fits into three other challenges which are:-

Thanks for stopping by and hopefully normal service will resume now lol.
