  3. A great card for you sketch challenge Lilian. Enjoy your day. It's a murky one here today! Barbxx

  4. our snowdrops are just coming up - and the daffs , I still have some of last years flowers in bloom - stuff that would have died in England and i finally I managed to have a lemon tree - even though it's supposed to be too cold here for those.. we get much longer days here and I don't get so sad in winter any more which is a blessing, since I can easily give in to melancholy, do me a close up of a part of your desk next week please - I have it on full zoom and I am tormented that I can't quite make some things out... but I still can see and love those on looking wise owls...Dxxx #31

  8. Lovely paper you chose for your card!!


  9. Good use of the DCD sketch. Thanks for playing

  10. Gah, went to enlarge your desk photo and the tablet just makes it smaller, so difficult for a nosey old bag!! I like the way your felt tips are so neatly aligned...tidy mind and all that!

  11. Love the beautiful papers you used on your pretty card. Thanks for joining us at Die Cuttin' Divas this week.


  12. Thanks for visiting Lilian! Great take on the sketch and a busy desk. I've noticed the days getting longer too - spring is not far off now, although we might still get some wintery weather. We've got the daffs coming though too! Enjoy your week! zsuzsa #30

  13. So gorgeous card. Thank you for joining us at Crafty Sentiments Designs. hugs

  14. Hi Lilian, tried to enlarge you card and your desk pic but it wouldn't let me - such a pity as I'd have loved a good old snoop. Your card is a very nice interpretation of the sketch and I love the embossed mirri card. Hope you've had a good weekend. Elizabeth x #21
