Well done with the watercolouring - I find that one quite hard but I like your shading - this has worked so well with those papers & the image is delightful (NOTE - check my stamps), they were my first cute acuisitions before I discovered the Sugar.............
Have a good weekend.

Such a sweet corner bookmark Lorraine, love the punched edges. Unfortunately the 'Punch It Out' challenge finished yesterday but no worries it fits our current challenge just fine.

Thank you for joining us over at CYDA for our 'Anything Goes' challenge.
