Karens Doodles # 7

Morning all, isn't it lovely out there!  I wanted to join in at Karen's Doodles as this weeks challenge is 'Monochromatic'.  I looked at the DT's cards for inspiration and decided to go for an orange theme.  The DP is my first use of my Cosmo Cricket pad of Garden Variety as the colours went so well.  The sentiment is using Paula Pascuals stamp set from Personal Impressions.

As promised I said I would show some of my lovely crafty parcels that arrived last week!

This is what my friend Clare sent me and as you can see it contains a couple of treats for Poppy & Honey!!  Well that was a first, my girls have never received doggy treats through the post!  They are set aside waiting for them both to be well enough to eat them but I dont think it will be too long!
Isnt it great when you receive things that you just have never bought yourself and it's such a treat to try out new things.  New for me are the tiny card candy which are in the most delicious colours and I cant wait to have a play!  Ive used one of her images in my last card and cant wait to get going on some more, especially the House Mouse ones as Im not at all confident I can colour them good enough and look at the fresh green blooms I got also!  Im a very lucky girl!
Please pop over to visit Clare as she has one of the loveliest of blogs and she will give you all a very warm welcome!

Here is what also arrived from Annie as I won one of the challenges she was hosting for Just Cute Bears.  A pop along to Annie's blog is also an excellent idea, go on, you know you want to!

Thank you for dropping in, I hope to post another card or two later.

Hope you have a fab day whatever you are up to.
