* D for Daffodils *


Good Morning all on this Good Friday
My DT card for today is for the new theme set over at 
We have reached the letter D and our theme D for Daffodils has been chosen by team mate Caz
I am particularly sad at this time as this is our last entry from my fab friend and team mate Lesley.
Lesley took over the blog when the previous co-ordinator left and has been a great team leader but i know Lesley has health problems and needs to cut down a few of her commitments, although i'm sure this won't be last we will see of Lesley i will miss working with her on this challenge blog. 
For more info on what is happening to the blog please pop over and hopefully you will all join in with us for Lesley's last challenge.
For my card i used an image form the Jane Shasky Cd

* Floral Fantasies *

Morning all
My card for you today is for the challenge over at
Where the lovely Brenda is celebrating her 4th blogaversary + approaching 4000 followers how amazing is that & so to celebrate she is having a challenge where you can win loads of goodies.
The theme
Make anything you like based on your take on Brenda's blog, be it the header, the name, her style of work, or even case one of her cards or projects,  it gives a fairly wide range, butterflies, fairies, flowers, bold colours, inkyness or something totally different that you alone can see. And she would love it if you tell her in your post what inspired your work.
My take on the theme is the blog header as poppies are 1 of my all time favourite flowers + the butterflies
hope you like it
