Best laid plans

So I had planned to have a whole day crafting while we were off over Easter. It didn't happen.

First we got distracted by this little chap bobbing around the garden and in and out of the nest box, fingers crossed they have taken up residence with us this year

Then today I was in the mood for baking so baked a loaf 

used the bananas up with some banana and sultana buns

then thought I had better use some of the rhubarb out of the garden before the stalks got too big so I made crumbles

Then I found the time to make a card for Sweet Sketch Wednesday 2, not quite as last minute as last week, although last minute was good for me as amazingly I won! 

So here is this weeks sketch

another great sketch which will definitely be used again.

Here is my card

I twisted the sketch so that my Digistamp boutique image would fit.
The base card is a 120mm scalloped from Craftwork cards, image is coloured with Copics as are the punched hearts in the right hand corner.
Lilac card is American Crafts and left over from a mermaid card I made a few weeks ago, flower papers came free in a magazine, white card has been embossed with a Sizzix embossing folder and I think the trim came from The Range.

Thank you for visiting and for putting up with all the waffle and I have just twigged that Allsorts  Challenge blog have Birds and Feathers for their challenge this week so I will enter this there too.
