Hello Everyone....hope your weekend went well...

Mine did.. and I managed to accomplish lots of little things in the garden and bought a beautiful solar powered set of butterflies and leaves to pop on my fence...and also did three more scrapbook pages for an album that I am doing as a gift.

Today is MONDAY!!..usually a headache of a day, but today I feel it will be a good one....and to start this day off lets go play at MAKE IT MONDAY  as a new linky party is about to begin..

Thanks to all who link up last week and congrats to the winners..

For my card share I have used this gorgeous image called "WILLOW" 

This little beauty is from our sponsor...Heather Valentin ..

Willow is all coloured up with copics and Faber Castell pencils...addded glitter on her wings and glossy accents on those beautiful eyes... and pom poms....I had a great time with this card....and the lovely colourful papers are MME "The Sweetest Thing"..

For my POTW I chose this adorable CAS card from #167 Julie ...
