I recently bought this image when it was on offer for just $1. Now often I buy or win  digis and they sit on my laptop for ages and some of them never get used so I was determined to print this one off and colour her up. 
Image - Elisabeth Bell
Medium - Copics
Papers - MME Nostalgia
Dies - MFT stitched rounded squares, Marianne flowers
Sentiment - Little Claire dinkie
Other - wooden bicycle, pearls

Hubby is out volunteering today and tomorrow. Regular readers may know that he drives a rescue boat for the powerboat club. They are hosting the National Championships for two days so I will mainly be crafting yippee!

Great card , love cycling. Bought my first bike with a baby seat when my eldest was a baby and am still cycling yet! New bike (only had 2) new baby seat for the grandkids who are all too big now but I like it on it hides my bum.... Weathers picking up now so will get out soon . It's great because I can't walk so far but I can cycle better. Have COPD . So really liked this card today x

Fabulous card, Marianne, so happy and spring! Love the colours of the DP, and the little wooden charm! This image from EB is adorable!
I have some very pretty EB image, received for free with the newsletter, but I can colour them only with pencils, because markers take away the black outlines... I have read that the printer have to be laser. Can you tell me something about this fact? It's right? You have print the image with a laser printer?
Have a great Sunday
