Crafty Ann's Challenge Blog DT Card #12

Hi everyone, this is my DT card for Crafty Ann's Challenge, where the theme this fortnight is 'Let the Sunshine In'. You can interpret this any way you wish, as long as it's to do with the sun or summer.
Pop over to the blog for further details and to see the other DT cards for some inspiration, and while you're there don't forget to check and see who our lucky winner for Challenge 11 was!
I couldn't believe how many of you joined in with us for the last challenge, I had such a fab time visiting all your blogs and I hope you'll manage to join in again this fortnight too.

Card Details:
* Image - Crafty Ann's - 'Bluebell Sheet'
* Colouring medium - Promarkers
* Papers - Crafty Ann's - Polished Stone 'Pastels'
* Punch - Martha Stewart deep edge 'Garden Trellis'
* Everything else from my stash

I'm afraid I haven't managed to do much lately. A mixture of neck and back pain, together with a large case of the blues struck, so I've decided I'll just have to 'go with the flow' and craft and blog when I feel up to it.
I'm sure a lot of this is to do with losing Mum earlier this year, so I'm expecting it all to be an ongoing problem for a while yet.
I'd like to say a huge 'Thank You' to all of my friends who continue to visit and leave me such lovely comments, they mean so much to me.

I love this card Chrissie, the colours the layout, everything.

Just go with the flow Chrissie and I know it's a cliche but things do get easier with time. Take care. Hugs x

This is one gorgeous card Chrissie, I smiled when I saw it because it reminded me of my Dad. One of his favourite places was a bluebell wood with the sun coming down through the trees and catching the bluebells. He would have loved this.

Such a stunning card Chrissie. The colours are lovely and bright, just like the weather!

Im sorry to read about your loss, I know what its like. It takes time, more time than we realise but things will get moving again when its time and before you know it, for most of the time life will seem almost normal. Just take what you need in the meanwhile.

Thinking of you

Fantastic card, Chrissie.
Such lovely fresh colours. The bluebell image is great - mine are showing in the garden and I can hardly wait to see them in bloom like these.
Hugs to you dear friend, thinking of you as always.

This is beautiful Chrissie. Lol!!! I chose Bluebells for mine as well. I didn't copy honest. I usually make mine then look at the DT's so I can't copy!!! Mine wasn't from the same source though. I love the way you have done yours it is super. Sorry you are still poorly and have the blues. I am thinking of you hun. Cathy xxxx
