MAWTT - Transportation

Hello... I hope you are all well today... if not then I'm sending you huge hugs and hope you are feeling better very soon! ...  it's Thursday and the turn of Team B over at 

and our lovely Tammy is hosting a theme of


Remember, your entry doesn't have to be a card... as long as your creation follows our Transport theme....I'm looking forward to seeing all your fab entries! :-)

I've coloured up this lovely image of a bicycle from Beccy's Place. It was a lovely image to colour. You do get a pre-coloured version in the set, but I wanted to colour this to match the scrummy Maja papers that I got for my Birthday last month... with a voucher from my lovely friend Laurie... thanks hun!

 Image: Beccy's Place - 'Bicycle Set'
Colouring medium: Copics
Papers: Maja - 'Vintage Autumn Basics'
Flowers: Nellie Snellen Punches
Nailheads: JosyRose

I hope you can 'be transported' over to our main site at MAWTT and see the rest of the Team's wonderful creations this week... lots of lovely inspiration for you!!

I hope you all had a lovely Easter? I had a very relaxing Weekend... Thursday my friend Lynn took me out for Tea and Cake... it was a lovely afternoon. We had a good catch up and went to the local pub on Village Green. We used to go there all the time in our teens... so it was nice to go back to our old stomping ground! And somebody (very kindly) kept putting The Who on the Jukebox which brought back even more memories as they were our favourite band back in the good old days!
On Friday I went to another friend's house for Pizza night... very yummy pizzas and a lovely Lemon Tart with Fresh Cream for Dessert... Mmm... very nice! (my diet begins next week!! Lol )
and the rest of the weekend I spent Crafting and Reading... Monday afternoon was lovely and sunny and so Mum and I sat in the Garden. But I can't believe it's got around to Thursday again already.... and it will soon be Weekend again! a very short week after the holiday.  The weather doesn't look so good for this weekend... but perfect for staying indoors and Crafting! ;-))
Thank you for all your lovely comments!
I will be back soon with something that I made just for fun!
Take Care
Love and hugs

This is so pretty Sue. Gorgeous colouring and layout.

So glad you have been having a catch up with friends. I need a girly time but have moved a long distance from all my friends.

We had quite a wet Easter here in Hertfordshire.

Still trying to catch up with my blog work after being ill.

Enjoy your weekend sweetie.

This is gorgeous Sue, I love your beautifully coloured bicycle and lovely colour combination.
I'm so pleased you had a fabulous weekend, it sounds wonderful.

Don't you just love Maja papers? You did a great job matching the colors of the image with those of the DPs, and it's a sweet summery card!
For Easter I spent 3 days in Riga, Latvia, and my days at home I spent spring cleaning. I couldn't rest until all closets and drawers were tidy, I gave 7 bags of stuff to charity and an equal amount of bags ended up in the trash. And now I can see through the window glasses again, they get really filthy during winter which shows as soon as we have sunny weather!

Kathleen said...

Gorgeous card Sue, love the image and the papers. Like the layout too, could say I love it all.
I am well and it sounds like you have had a lovely Easter, lemon tart, my mouth is watering lol.

Hello gorgeous girl I'm back!!! First things first, I have to just say........ I LOVE LEMON TART!!! it's almost my favourite pudding along side sticky toffee!
I love this super card Sue and I knew that voucher would be put to perfect use by you, Live and love crafts were made for you lol with all that vintage stuff.
Everything has been beyond hectic here and my friends keep dragging me out so my crafting time has been minimal. I've missed it and you all so much!!!
