Throw on those flowers - MilkCoffee challenge reminder!

So who has lots and lots of chocolates lined up for today?!!  Steve says he hasn't bought me a choccie egg this year but I'm hoping he's gonna surprise me!!  I want a huge Lindt chocolate egg with their delectable little truffles thrown on the side!  We'll see...

Anyway, here today with a reminder that you have plenty of time to join in with the current fortnightly MilkCoffee Stamps challenge of Throw on Those flowers!  Now, I'm not a big flower embellisher so this is the best I could do - a few flowers and flower paper...




This is one of the newbies, Tiffany Playing Violin - isn't she beautiful?  She was such a dream to colour in too!  Here's a close up...




I used touches of Glamour Dust on her to make her pop a bit and those papers were a freebie from a mag.  so I hope you'll have time to join in the challenge for a chance to win two MilkCoffee digis of your choice!

Okay, that is it from me today! Have a fabulous Easter Sunday and see you tomorrow with my Make It Monday and Pollycrafts Monday posts!

ttfn!



 I am entering my card into the following challenges:

Happy Easter Mary! My husband has already eaten all our chocolate eggs apart from the one I hid from him and not for him to find either. So my treat today is a classic Finnish easter egg - a real egg shell filled with delicious chocolate.

Your card is stunning as always. Awesome colouring on such a detailed image and I love the shoes. So sparkly and pretty!

Okay onto your card... STUNNING!!! And yes I did just hop over to the Etsy store and make a little purchase. Oops! I do have some Milk Coffee images already, but somehow I missed this little beauty.
