So Sweet..........

Good evening to you all in the land of blog
Came home to a wonderfully cooked slow cooked meal tonight, was lovely steak and ale with full vegetables.  My son cooked this for me, although I had left out sirloin steak so was expecting chips, onion rings and peas...................... but was still gorgeous either way.  He is such a sweetie, though we would like something warming after all the rain :)

Anyway here is a little something I created over the long weekend.  Just had to try another new WRS image and papers and sentiment from Grimsby Crafts :)  my Easter box from Matt.

The base layer is a pale lilac, the papers are Bella Papers from Wild Rose Studio, the image is Wrapped with Love by Wild Rose Studio and the sentiment is Little Labels by Wild Rose Studio.  The MS double heart punch with some Papermania ribbon and matching bow along with some stash flowers edged in TH Mulled Lavender and some Hobby House Pearls finish it off.  I have cut the image outside the die cut so that the ribbon floats and paper pieced the present.

The image "Wrapped with Love" is coloured in copics using the RV and V colours for a change and think it made them so warm with those lovely hot pinks for the ears and R colours for the tag.
As always, I would like to thank all of my wonderful visitors and followers for the lovely and inspirational comments you leave, which allows me to hop on over in return to see your own lovely work.
