Hurray for Saturday!

Did you survive April Fool’s Day? I had no time for those kind of larks this year as I have been busy with my current work assignment. At the moment I am running cooking sessions for children in a supermarket cafe. There are two sessions a day and when I say cook, we really do cook – flatbreads, scones, chow mein, salmon pilaff, fruit kebabs, toasty bagels  … All good stuff, but long tiring days which is why I am particularly thrilled that it is the weekend and I can recharge my batteries, plus I have reached the halfway point.

Anyway, with all that going on I almost forgot to share one of my DT projects that I made for the current Spring themed challenge over at Crafty Boots.


I’ve used a pretty image from A Day for Daisies and coloured it with watercolour pencils.


I’ve kept the rest fairly simple – a few spring coloured blossoms and a tiny bow.


I have to say that the spring I am currently experiencing is pretty far removed from what is portrayed here! Snow on Monday, heavy rain on Tuesday and then rain and hail on Thursday. I guess we can call the last two “April showers,” I got caught – without a coat or umbrella – in both of them!

Thank you to everyone who left comments here over Easter and throughout last week. I really do appreciate each and every one, especially when I am so busy at work.

Wishing you a lovely weekend and thanks for buzzing by.

  1. Sounds like a very busy week but so worth when time is spent with children. Must be very rewarding in the end. Hope you rest over the weekend. Your card is so pretty and the colors so delicate. I love the images from Day for Daises and simple is sometimes so much better. I rarely click on a card where you have to search to find where the image is…way too many of those out there lately. We are having the same weather here on the east coast of the US. Very warm, very cold, thunderstorms, downpours of heavy rain and snow in the forecast for tomorrow with high winds. It makes you wonder what is going on.

    • It’s great Sandra when they try foods that they haven’t had before. Thank you for your lovely comments. Hope the weather picks up for you, seems that some places here are having a heat wave, but not in my neck of the woods!!! 🙂

  2. I have been waiting for you to post this adorable card, I love this image and you have coloured it so beautifully. I have never been able to get my watercolour pencils to work they way they should. I should get myself onto a train and come and have some lessons with the master.

    A real winner.
