Evening, all! Well, this afternoon we had sunshine yay! Long may it continue! Especially next week, when we have our garden renovated! Out will go the bushes, in will come raised beds and turf, and it will be so much easier to maintain! I can't wait!!

I have made a card today, this is for my daughter's BFF who turns 27 on Monday. 27! It's only 5 minutes since she left school!!! I tell you, time has definitely speeded up over the past quarter-century!

This sweetie is Owlette, a digi from Tiddly Inks, isn't she elegant?

I love her pet owl!

I coloured her with Promarkers (list below) and put Glossy Accents on her hat. The mat is cut with a Picot Circle Nestie (I love that die!). The crochet lace, and the blue seam binding that I made into a double bow, both came from The Ribbon Girl. The papers are 'Be Amazing' by My Mind's Eye.

I apologise for the faded colours, irl they are rather brighter!

I'm entering the Sweet Sketch Wednesday Challenge - this is a wonderful sketch! (I hope the addition of the lace is ok!)

I hope you all have a happy weekend with sunshine and fun! Thanks for looking!

love Mags B x

Promarkers: French Navy, Aegean Blue, Cyan, Sky Blue, Arctic Blue, Powder Blue; Burnt Umber, Walnut, Cocoa, Caramel, Sandstone; Gold, Mustard; Coral, Sunkissed Pink, Blush, Baby Pink

Good Luck with the garden, hope the sun shines so you can get it sorted how you want!
