2 Challenges in 1

Hello friends, hope you're all having a nice Saturday? I've been blog hopping and notice that our friends in the northern hemisphere are still experiencing cold weather, with today being especially cold and rainy!  Well, while Spring is still to show it's face, we've had a rather pleasant Autumn day in South Africa.  It started off cloudy this morning and then around 13h00 the sun came out and it's been rather nice ever since.

Have you popped around to the Whiff of Joy challenge blog?   Their challenge is for you to make an Easel Card and seeing that this is a rather new experience for me, I just had to take part and here is my little creation for you to enjoy.  I am also entering this into the Paper Take Weekly challenge, as I have used the colours Lilac & Lemon, which is what they've called for.

I chose this lovely DP from KaiserCraft first and then my beautiful Shopping Willow.  As you can see I chose my copics with care to blend in with my DP and am very happy with the result. I've used both sides of this paper, isn't the lilac, green and pale lemon just too lovely?  I used a stick on sentiment which I've had in my stash.  It just seemed appropriate to use for this card today... as we girls know that Shopping Is Lots Of FUN!  The rhinestones, flowers and ribbon I purchased from Paola (see her details under Where I Like To Shop).  I have a template for handbags and quickly made this one with purple card to make this card more fun!  I hope you like it as much as I enjoyed making it. 

Your comments are always appreciated, so if you feel like leaving one, that would be great! Tons of hugs to you all, Sharon x
