Little Spring Wryn

Good morning!

Oh it's a cold, wet and miserable morning here and my tumble dryer has just broken down....
You don't realise how much you rely on something until you don't have it any more.
I have resurrected an old wooden clothes horse which I used to dry clothes on in front of the fire
 and Phoebe thinks it's hilarious!
When I was small, my mum used to dry clothes on a clothes horse or on a line strung across the ceiling above the fire.
In those days we didn't have radiators or tumble dryers.....
Oh my goodness,
I'm thinking back to the good ole *cringe*

For my card's Wryn again!
I just love colouring these wee images.

  The papers are Crate Paper ~ Paper Doll
and they are layered on a 15cm white card blank.
The sentiment is computer generated ~ 'the cool' font and cut out with circle Nestabilities.
The image is coloured with Copics and cut out with a Nestabilities labels 1 die.

The butterflies and buttons are from a Making Memories set and I added some mini gems to the centres of the butterflies.

Thank you all for visiting today,
I'm still catching up on commenting,
there are so many wonderful blogs to see, it's easy to get lost in them!

Mum and Dad have just phoned to see if we'd like a fry...
Well, it would be rude to refuse wouldn't it!
The diet can start tomorrow ;)

Have a lovely  day
and I'll 'see you soon' :)

Hi Sarah! Sorry to hear the dryer putzed out on you. Would be a blessing to my prayers as I abhore laundry; however, the manual work to dry seems even more unpleasant. LOL..I don't think we can win this one at all. :)

Your card is smashing! I love the technique you use for the hair. It looks like you could just reach out and touch it. So beautiful all your work here is. :)

Thank you so much for playing at The Squirrel & The Fox and also for your very sweet comment on my blog. Hope you are doing well and the fry was wonderful.

Hi Sarah, your card is fantastic, Love the colors and the image, great work! What a pity with the tumble dryer... me too, I was unlucky two years ago: the washing machine and the dish-washing-machine broke down in three weeks... no holidays :-( but new machines ;-)

Another gorgeous card Sarah! Beautiful colouring and papers. I love the way you've coloured the sky - I always make a mess when I try!

My first house had one of those airer things hanging on the ceiling - I loved it! My MIL still has hers and uses it every day.

Such a sweet little girl, I love how you shaded her :0)
We never replaced our tumble dryer and most of the time I don't miss it but with this rain we're constantly getting I'm beginning to have second thoughts!!!
Clothes horses are fun for kids... I remember using mum's as part of our den :0)
