I just called to say hello

The sun is shining - again!
That means going out into the garden for the big tidy up.
Hmmm... maybe I can leave it just a few more days ;-)

On the net last week, working hard hardly working, I came across this adorable image from Mashi's Muffins. 
Why have I not seen these before?
I used this cutie for my SIL's birthday card.
Her birthday's not til the end of May, so I'm ahead of the game :-)  

I played along with the sketch at Seize the Birthday.
My card seemed to lack something at the bottom, so I added those little corners, that I found in my 'bits & pieces' box.
Hmmm... I'm not sure about them now, but they are stuck down, so there's no going back!
Seize the Birthday - Sketch 
All that Scraps - Spring Fling  The dreaded 'spring cleaning' came to mind when I saw this cutie in her apron, so I matched her with pretty spring colours.
