Crafts 4 Eternity Recipe Challenge #24

Crafts 4 Eternity time again & we've got another fab challenge for you. This week we would like you to
1. use Michele's great sketch
2. use the colours green & yellow (perfect for Spring & Easter!)
3.add some string

As my Mum doesn't really do cute, I had to step outside my comfort zone again. She does enjoy feeding the birds in her garden, so this is appropriate. The stamps are from Elusive Images & are soooo easy to colour! The DPs are Sugar Rush by Basic Grey. I love them.

I do have to confess to having to cheat a little on this. As I was making it I couldn't find the string & I know I don't have any wool. So I had to use embroidery thread. It's a shame as I think the string would have added a bit of texture & would have looked good.
I should have taken a close up of the flower as it holds the sentiment on a charm that says 'Made with Love'. If you click on it you might see it better.
Now then, on to this weeks prize, which is a fab set of round digi sentiments, that are not only gorgeous & fun, but will come in really useful.

If you can't wait to see if you win this weeks challenge, they are available to buy here at the Crafts 4 Eternity shop along with lots of other gorgeous goodies! Please check out the lovely creations of my wonderful C4E teamies
Well I hope everyone is getting well looked after today, it being Mother's Day & all. At least here in England it is. As a special treat, I am hoping to get some crafting done in daylight hours for a change! I don't ask for much!!
Whatever you are up to, have a wonderful day. Thanks for looking.
Big Hugs,
Andie xx
