Good morning to you out there in blogland.  I am hoping that you are all feeling quite well and enjoying these little bits of sunshine!  Graham has planted some daffodils in troughs on a ledge just outside the kitchen window and they are growing so big and strong that I can hardly see over them.  He's about a foot taller than me (at 6' 3") so has no problem whatsoever - duh!  Mind you those flowers are really cheering me up no end so I'm not complaining.

Anyway I'm just posting my card for the Crafty Calendar Challenge this month, where our theme is the extremely popular Anything Goes.  We have two fabulous sponsors this month so you've guessed it - that means two prizes!  Corking!!!

I don't make too many green cards but I coloured my little fairy on her toadstool and was drawn towards the citrus green for her dress and then I found the green citrus card to match and just went with it.   The daisy paper is from a huuuuuuge pad of 12" x 12" papers (I've lost the front sheet so don't have a clue who they are by) and they really are gorgeous.

Right on to our sponsors - we have All Dressed Up  

and Fabrika Fantasy 

Two fantastic prizes - their digi images are wonderful.

We are looking forward to seeing all your creations on the challenge - it's such a great theme and don't forget you don't have to stop at cards.  There are loads of crafts out there so just show us what you can do!

Well I'm off now 'cos it's almost bedtime and I'm absolutely shattered.  Take care all of you and I'll catch you later.  Oooh in case it has crossed your mind - I've scheduled me post to appear at 9.00am on Saturday morning!   I'm doing this Thursday very late evening!

Big hugs and love to you all
