A run between the showers

Morning all - hope you are happy this Friday morning? I'm feeling happy as I've just had a lovely run between the showers - and then had a shower and now I can relax with blogland for 20 minutes until I have to go down to school to run the gardening club! I do enjoy being busy! I just hope the rain stays off long enough for the children to come outside this week!

Todays card is a patriotic red, white and blue take on snow white - from saturated canary:

She's a stunning image from Krista smith - but I think my colouring (in my trusty promarkers) isn't the best so don't look too closely!!! I've followed a sketch from seems a little sketchy and I would like to enter my card into the following challenges:

saturatedcanarychallenge: red, white and blue
craftysentiments: red white and blue
pinkgemchallengeblog: buttons, bows, bling and butterflies
fabnfunkychallenges: cute and girly
thepapershelter: punches and/or dies (just dies for this one)
I love promarkersilovepromarkers: anything goes
pattiescreationschallenge: red, white and blue.

Got to rush now!

Big hugs and have a fab weekend!
