Here are my DT cards for Moving Along With The Times and Willow Sketchie Challenge for this week. Sorry I am late in posting them, but spent all of yesterday in bed, I slept for England! David has just got back from another long haul trip and has brought some nasty bug back with him, which he has kindly (not) shared with me!

I had great fun with these two sketches, and will definately use them both again. I have made two very different cards both with these cute digi images.

Moving Along With The Times Challenge # 36 - Sue's Sketch

I have used the super-cute 'Hello Daffodil' from the Spring Thing's collection over at Pollycraft on my card this week, the theme being 'One for the Girls'. I decided on this little image, because most girlies love cats and flowers, especially me, lol!

The lovely Paula from Pollycraft is sponsoring us this week, and a beautiful set of Digi Spring Dreams, Springtime Retro Kit is the prize. Also MAWTT readers can get a 10% discount at Pollycraft Designs , so hurry on over, grab the discount code and treat yourself to some lovely digi images and stamps.
