I love Pippi Longsocks

Morning everyone! Well it's shaping up to be a lovely sunny day once again in our neck of the woods. I now have a bunch of  snow drops blooming at the end of my garden and I always take this to mean that Spring is finally on it's way. And if that's not enough proof....I actually managed to get some washing dried on the line yesterday for the first time in months (how sad am I to get so excited about that!!!)

I also managed to fit in an enjoyable bit of time crafting yesterday, and this is what I came up with, using the adorable Pippi Longsocks from Sugar Nellie. For me this is one of those 'instant smile' images.....both cute and cheeky at the same time, and she's really easy to colour in too.

I've tried to keep this card fairly clean and simple. I found a scrap of blue card which was just the right size for the matting and then coloured Pippi to match, using my Promarkers of course! The polka dot embossong folder has been dusted off once again and the whole thing finished off with a scrap of Organza ribbon.

I'm going to enter this card in to a few challenges:

Allorts - Free and Easy February
Cute Card Thursday - Things With Wings
My Mums Craft Shop - Ribbons and Buttons
Secret Crafter - White on White
CES - Blues and Creams
Less is More - Don't Scrap It.

So that's me done for today. I hope you all have a lovely day and thanks for stopping by.
